Healthy and Fun Hikes for Dogs in Kamloops
What makes us different than the other hiking companies in Kamloops?
We are professional Dog Trainers. Making sure your dogs have good social experiences with other dogs while exercising and training is our mandate. That is what so many of our clients like about My Balanced Dog, your dog’s best interest is at our heart and we are all working towards canine good citizens!
Prior to starting hikes the dogs must participate in Hike School which teaches the dogs our rules and expectations for Hikes. This program helps to ensure safe and happy Hikes. Every dog deserves to have a great social experience while burning off energy in their most natural environments. Dogs will learn down-stay, recall both individual and within the pack, and off leash heel in a group. Once your dog has graduated they will be introduced to their pack(s) and start hiking. The cost for this just comes off of the regular Hike day pass. Your dog will spend a few hours with us on their school days just as if it were a Hike day.
Canine guardians are expected to take a Hike orientation so that they know what we are training their dog to do and can continue lessons at home. There are a few dates to choose from for these classes. Then once a year we will do a refresher course. The Guardian course is free of charge.
Because we work hard to have stable packs, we do not accept any drop-in dogs. We offer a 6-hike pass for $150.00 plus GST.
