BY POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT.
Galloping through the forest, jumping in and out of the lake on hot days, and rolling around on the grass, are just some of the activities your dog will enjoy. We take your dog on fun-filled outings to the best off-leash parks Toronto has to offer. We go the extra mile to make your dog's day!
Adventure Hikes are structured and run by our experienced CPDT-KA certified dog trainer. She will evaluate your dog and their needs, to set up a protocol that will keep them safe. When dogs start with us, they must earn their way off-leash. The safety of your pup is paramount. If your dog already has fantastic recall, the process will be fast. If your dog does not, we will work with them for as long as it takes.
Our philosophies and ethologies are science-based and rooted in positive reinforcement, force-free methods. This means we use reward-based training and careful management to get long-lasting, effective results.
*Please Note: Even though we do a lot of basic training on our hikes, they are not training walks. Dogs that lack impulse control, resource guard, or demonstrate aggression are not suited to this type of excursion.
Your dog will gain confidence, form friendships, and flourish within a small group of peers. On our hike, your walker will take between 3-6 dogs on their adventure. Occasionally our walkers meet up for double the fun. We just love leading our fun and friendly pack on different activities every day!
Transparency and communication is a crucial part of earning your trust. That's why we have an easy-to-use app. We keep you in the loop and update you on everything that happens on our hikes. When we have wrapped up at the park you will receive 2-4 photos of your dog's adventure. When you receive your report, you know your dog is en route home. Our app has everything you need to manage your dog's adventures. From scheduling to invoicing, and communicating with walkers, it's all right there in one convenient app.
We are a family business. Our two walkers Emma and Kyle are experienced, knowledgeable pet care professionals with over 13 years of experience between them. It will always be one of them walking your dog. You will have peace of mind knowing your dog's caretakers are the same qualified individuals day-to-day. Read our team's Bio's to learn more.

Book a free Meet & Greet
Before we get your pup started on our adventures, we must first set up a free meet and greet. This allows you to meet your potential walkers and decide if we are the right fit. We will discuss all the info we need to keep your dog happy, healthy and safe. Additionally, we can arrange contactless pick-pick, acquire keys, and get you set up on our app.
Your health is our priority. Emma and Kyle will arrive at your home fully masked. The meet and greet can be held either in your home or your yard/patio, weather permitting. Our walkers are fully vaccinated and will continue to wear a mask to your door whether you are home or not. If you will be home at the time of pick up we will arrange contactless pick-up and message a few minutes before we arrive.
