Pack Walk Rules
1) When you arrive, have your dog sit outside of your vehicle for at least five minutes. 2) Please keep your distance from other walkers, dogs, and people in the park. 3) Do not allow your dog to meet face to face with other dogs. 4) Keep your dogs 6 feet away from other dogs. Some dogs have issues with other dogs especially if they are reactive dogs. 5) Ask before approaching or getting close to other dogs. This is not recommended and is not allowed during the pack walk. 6) Pack walks are to establish and execute calm behavior during the walk. We want the dogs to feed off of your calm demeanor. 7) Please do not baby talk or make high pitch sounds to the dog. This can create anxiety for the dogs. 8) No food or treats are allowed during the walks. 9) Your dogs may not sniff the ground or pee during the walk. This creates discipline. 10) Please bring poop bags to pick up the mess that your dog makes. 11) Please make sure you bring water for both you and your dog.
