Healthy and Fun Hikes for Dogs in Kamloops

Does your dog need to get out of the house and get rid of some mental and physical energy? My Balanced Dog offers Adventure Hikes. Our hikes are hosted by Jessie and her team, and their canine companions. Jessie has taken the Dog Safe first aid course, has a lot of outdoor experience, and continually educates herself in all aspects of dog training.

We will PICK up your dog and DROP them off at your home, so you don’t have to worry about anything. Just come home after a long day at work to an exercised and tired dog! We offer hikes on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays; let us know what days you would like and we will see if we can accommodate as we only have so much space each hike. Hikes are anywhere between 3-12kms a day depending on terrain and dogs present.

What do you need to do?

Call us to set up a Meet ‘n’ Greet. We will come to your house and meet your dog. We will go over how the pick-ups and drop-offs work, and hike information.

We will also send you the application forms to fill out before our Meet.

Can ANY dog go?

Dogs must be social with people and at least somewhat social with other dogs. We will go over any concerns you might have during our phone call. Dogs should know their name and be familiar with recall words, however, they do not need to be perfect at recall as we do on-the-hike training with them.

Cost?

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.

Real-World Training, All Day Long

Have your dog stay with us and learn his/her obedience! Your dog will NOT stay locked in a kennel all day. Your dog becomes part of our pack and is incorporated into our regular days, taking part in our Day-School programs, Adventure Hikes, Group Walks, Obedience Classes and their personalized, private training! Take a look at our programs and see which program better suits you!

All our training programs come with a Walk-On Membership. Our Walk-On Program is a bonus program that we offer to our clients so that they have our support on-going. We meet twice monthly: one off-leash group class and one on-leash group class. All participants must have completed training with MBD; this is not open to the public.

Why do we do this? It gives hesitant owners that have worked with us and their dog a chance to train with other owners and dogs without being judged for their dog’s behaviour.

All participants know our training methods and all participants understand the struggle or embarrassment of the other members. It is a safe place to train your dog while there are other dogs around!
