Either way, exactly one month from now, we're starting a dog-walking group!
After being jealous of all the events and groups for dog owners in bigger cities, we said "why can't we start one here?!" So we are.
Not only does walking with a group of like-minded dog-people sound fun to us, but the passive socialization is great for our pal Ed. He'll never be a dog-park dog, and we're okay with that. But that doesn't mean he doesn't need socialized. And we know he's not the only one.
It's not easy having a dog that can't directly socialize. Sometimes it feels like you can't take him anywhere. It's embarassing when he has a melt-down. We worry people are judging us. him. the breed.
Enter Pack of Erie Dogs. Our vision is for the group to become a judegement-free place where we can socialize our dogs in a controlled environment - meaning no dog interactions - in order to make all dogs (and humans!) feel comfortable as they work on socializing their pal and helping them to become perfect canine citizens.
So, come one, come all and work on any issues you and your dog may have. We'll personally be working on: loose-leash walking, dog-reactivity, focus, and calm human-greetings...to name a few.
Our first walk is planned for May 5th at 2 PM. Visit our facebook page for more details!!
