Tawzer Dog | Ready, Set, HIKE!

Ready, Set, HIKE!

Video Description:

Join Nancy Tanner, for a day of training and discussion, to prepare you and your dog for back country hiking and wilderness first aid.
Ready, Set, HIKE! is celebrating its 4 Year Anniversary in the back country, so we wanted to share our information in a full day workshop. A great opportunity for the beginning thru avid hiker, as well as trainers, City Planners, looking to add a new program to their curriculum! This program doesn’t teach people how to hike, we assume if you know how to walk, then hiking will be a breeze! RSH prepares dogs and their owners to use trails responsibly while enjoying the back country.
  • Self-control in the car is where the hike begins
  • Trail etiquette – multi use trails, what are you responsible for?
  • The Back Country is not a dog park, how to change what your doing
  • Working on specific behaviors all dog/owner teams should have before stepping  out onto a trail. Directionals, recalls in the great outdoors, off trail stays, between, trail fetch, behind, trail passing, and more!
  • Creating a hiking partner – how far is too far? Working on space
  • Right of Ways
  • Trail choice – knowing you and your dog’s ability
  • Seasonal, dry, wet, high, low hiking – benefits, considerations? You bet!
  • Wilderness first aid tips – prevention
  • Gear, clothing, what to bring in your day pack for you and your dog
  • Paw Care – staying mobile
  • Hiking Solo with your dog – tips
  • Trapping and hunting considerations 
  • Taking photos … it’s a must! 
  • … and more!
