Enrichment Walks

Adventure Walks:

Allow your dog to be their doggy self! Adventure walks  are one hour, and take place on wooded trails. Similar to decompression walks, but with the added companionship of dog friends. Your dog will be immersed in nature and allowed to sniff, feel and see all that the trails of Massachusetts have to offer. Recall is worked on using science based, positive reinforcement techniques. Dogs are always secured via leash or long line until a secure relationship  between dog and walker can be formed. Here at Zoomies we limit group size for the safety of the dogs and walker and only take 2-3 dogs per walk. Pick up and drop off is included in price. A service journal with pictures and your dogs personal report will be sent via email after your service. On average, dogs are out of the house for 2 hours.

Dogs must be up to date on rabies vaccine, bordetella, and distemper vaccines and flea and tick medication is recommended. 

$35.00/adventure walk

 

Solo Decompression Walks:

Decompression walks are defined as "a walk where dogs have freedom of movement in nature". Your dog will be free to sniff and explore the world around them while safely attached to a harness and long line.

 

Decompression walks can be, when used regularly, especially helpful for anxious dogs by allowing them freedom to be a dog without the overwhelming stress of city life.

 

Walks are 45 minutes and take place on wooded trails or large grassy areas. Pick up and drop off as well as pictures and updates are included. On average your dog will be out of the house for 1.5-2 hours. I take one dog per decompression walk.

 

Dogs must be up to date on rabies vaccine.

Flea and tick medication is recommended. 

$45.00/individual decompression walk

*no weekend fee
