Thanks for joining the Human Adventure group! Things are gathering momentum and I'm very excited about our kick-off hike on September 1. I've got a number of good ideas about where our first hike will go. We'll probably keep it mild, but with the option to cover more difficult terrain if everyone is feeling good. I'll be in touch in the next few weeks with our meet-up location and directions.
My plan for this is that it will evolve as the group dictates, so during our hikes we can talk about scheduling options for when the seasons change and what hikes/areas the group wants to visit more often! I've got Greg Brooks, an excellent local trainer, who will most likely be joining us on the first hike. I'll get a commitment from him on Thursday. I've worked with a number of dogs he's trained and can vouch for his ability and versatility, so be ready with the tough questions!
We'll have at least one hike with a trainer, vet, or other dog handling professional along every month. Of course, I work with dogs for a living and am always available during walks and via email to discuss behavioral issues!
As the group grows, I'll be able to offer more hikes and invite other dog handling professionals along for more of the hikes. Please tell your friends about the Human Adventure so this can really take off!
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me! I'm very good about responding.
Join your dog for adventures on local trails and around some of the coolest, most unique places our beautiful city has to offer!
Marshall, Cisco, Weston, Janice, and myself will be your guides. Bring your dogs out to join the pack! They'll meet other dogs and you'll meet other involved, loving, like-minded dog owners in a positive, healthy, and productive environment.
In addition to the walk, we'll be available to discuss basic dog training, behavioral issues, and work with participants to ensure that everyone is learning during our adventures.
Dogs must be friendly with people and other dogs (unless otherwise specified for a particular hike) and able to be controlled on leash by their handler. Each person may bring up to two dogs with them.
Human participants must be over 18 years of age. Dogs of any age are welcome! Please bear in mind that the hikes are probably not suitable for very young puppies (under 6 months of age) and may be too challenging for older and out of shape dogs. We encourage you to speak with your vet about the activities you participate in with your dog.
The hikes will be of varying degrees of difficulty and some hikes may not be suitable for all participants. We'll let you know how difficult the planned hike is and what unusual obstacles we'll likely encounter along the way!
