Think your dog is pretty fantastic but he has just one or two things you want some help with? Is it too stimulating for your dog to be around so many people & dogs that you feel you could learn better without them present for the lesson? That is what we have created the clinics and the drop in classes for!

OFF Leash Hikes & Training Drop In -
Prerequisite to join the pack: Completion of Leash Skills, Confident Canine or Really Reliable Recall as well as an interview.

Do you and your dog have what it takes to join us for an off leash pack walk? Please read the info below and send us an email with your dogs information and experience. 

If you’re anything like us, you love being outside with your dog and there are so many fabulous hiking trails right outside our doors. Finding new trails to explore is great, but how do you know where to begin? For some, going alone on a trail you’ve not familiar with may not be ideal, and hikes are always more fun for both dogs and people when there are other “pack members” along.

With this in mind, we created an Off Leash Dog Walking Club made up of our best clients. Who are they? These are dog owners who have taken 2 or more of our training classes, incorporate training into their daily life and have a great relationship with their dogs. The dogs have a good Recall cue and are happy and friendly with other dogs and people. This is a drop in club and walk times vary, so we always have a different pack headed out.

If you would like more information please send us an email and we will get it to you. You and your dog have to pass an interview walk to be a part of the club, as we want to keep the great energy we already have with our pack going. But there is always room for more to join the fun.


Scent Detection drop in

Upcoming Drop in classes:

For those who have completed the introductory 7 week Foundations and Containers course. These drop in classes may be at the training center or outdoors for the more advanced students. A drop in punch card is $100 and includes 5 classes. Please email us if you would like to join one of the above classes.

Outdoor Adventure drop in

Upcoming Classes:

It seems such a shame to not continue Outdoor Adventure through another winter, but we can’t predict the weather 6 weeks in advance like we can in the summer. So, for this fall/winter season, we are going to host some drop in OA classes at different spots all around Nanaimo. Class Locations will include Neck Point, Pipers Lagoon, Linley Valley trails, downtown, the seawall, Cable Bay, Bowen Park and many others. These lessons will give you real life practice that will challenge both you and your dog and teach you skills to implement on your daily walks. We work around lots of distractions and practice plenty of recalls, along with whatever pops up at each location. A drop in punch card of 5 classes is $100. If you have taken Outdoor Adventure with us already, or you have completed our Leash Skills or Really Reliable Recall class, then you are welcome to join us.

If you want to be on the email list for our drop in dates, please send an email to us and let us know.
