Tally Ho to Rally-O: Maximize Your Heeling Game!
We started a series of Rally classes last summer, but due to the fact I had to engage in a summer-long house hunt, the classes got pushed to the way side. They are restarting! Each class will focus on the skills needed to enter into a basic novice level Rally class. Particularly; the heel work. In a novice rally class the emphasis is on heeling. This series of classes will focus on developing an attentive, competition worthy heel. "But what if I don't want to do a competition?" No problem! This class will also up your leash walking skills, elevate them to a level that your neighbors will be envious of. If you've been struggling to take the dog for a walk this is a good class for you! If you're the kind of person who likes to take their dog to outdoor events, and doesn't want to be drug around the vendor booths; this class is for you. If you are currently using a training aid (prong collar, halti, no-pull harness) for walking your dog THIS is the class for you. Time to get the skills for you and your dog to walk on leash like pros and ditch the training aids for good! Class will be held on Thursday evenings, at the Antoniuk Arena, graciously allowed for our use in learning! Class Requirements: + Maximum 6 foot leash + Rewards (food rewards that are high value, and a toy reward if a dog has a favorite) + Weather appropriate clothing (we are starting classes in spring and moving on into summer, plan accordingly!) No previous training of any kind required, suitable for all ages and skill levels! WHERE: Antoniuk Arena - West Boise WHEN: Thursday Evenings at 6pm (additional evening classes may be added as time, and daylight stretches) COST: $10 per class PLEASE NOTE: Class will be held at a private arena that we are renting. There are horses on the property so dogs must be remain ON LEASH at all times. For off leash work we will have long lines to use. Access to the Arena is behind the residence. Anyone who signs up will be emailed specific instructions on parking and property access so we do not disturb the residents! Maximize your leash walking game!

What we're about

We are a Boise based non-profit dedicated to outdoor adventures with dogs. As our name suggests we specifically like Hiking with Dogs, though we offer biking, backpacking, camping and other outdoor experiences! We are run by an area dog trainer and behavior specialist, Pine (president), and a dedicated dog owner, Kristina (Vice president.) We are open to all dogs, all ages, all breeds, and all skill levels of people! Even if you've never been hiking with your dog before we welcome you to join us and learn how! We keep things as casual as we can, and try to always make sure everyone is having a good time. We were founded in September 2014.

While we go to great lengths to ensure everyone's safety, ultimately your safety and that of your dog is YOUR responsibility. Your behavior, and that of your dog's, is also your sole responsibility.
