Shaker Heights Pack Walk

A completely free pack walk designed to help your dog learn to be calm and relaxed around other dogs.

Location: Horseshoe Lake in Shaker Heights. The walk starts off of South Park Drive, between Attleboro and Lee.

Time: Every Saturday at 9 a.m. We walk in pretty much all weather conditions! Check the Facebook Group for all updates. 

Each Pack Walk lasts about 1 hour as we walk as a group around Horseshoe Lake in Shaker Heights. The group stops every 10 minutes or so to work on calm behavior and other group exercises.

Other benefits:

  • Learn how to read your dog’s body language.

  • Gives reactive and fearful dogs a chance to succeed under threshold.

  • Your dog will learn to settle around other dogs and amid numerous distractions.

You should find it a unique way to bond with your dog and you'll get to meet other a variety of other dogs and dog owners.
