Dog adventure walks
Dog adventure walks: One very common problem with training camps is that the
Many of the dog trainers themselves don't have the confidence that their dog will be able to translate and apply all of what they learned about obedience at the training camp, to their daily life and routines back home in the city. And because the dog trainers are afraid of possible problems often don't allow the dog to try out the new skills that they acquired while at the training camps.
Most dog owners attend dog training camps not so much to train their in the hopes of entering their into future competitions but rather with the hopes of having a dog that is behaved and obedient.
What constitutes a well behaved dog of course is different for each person but the basic desire of most city dwelling owners of companion is a dog that doesn't jump all over everyone they meet, that will sit quietly and patiently outside a store, that will walk calmly through the park and even go on a long hike through the forest while voluntarily following on the end of a (or even better off the at "Heel").
However these daily situations that are common in the city are not necessarily present in a training camp. So the idea of the following exercises is to prepare both the dog owner and dog for the various challenges that they will encounter on a daily basis living in the city and while on walks either through the park, forest or local shopping mall. The ability for the teams to practice these situations in a controlled environment before having to face them in real life helps to give confidence and trust to both the dog and trainer.
