Dog Walking

Let your pup have a nice midday sniff while you work!

A sable and white collie lays on a path at a park in front of a grassy area. The leash is on the ground and going off screen.

Dogs thrive with a healthy structure of mental stimulation and enrichment! Luckily, our 30 and 60 minute dog walking options provide both of these and more!

Prior to your first Dog Walking or Dog Walking with Training appointment, you need to schedule a Meet and Greet appointment. This ensures that our trainer gets to know both you and your dog. We also talk over your goals and what your dog has trouble with!

Dog Walking

Our Dog Walking option is recommended for pups who are already pro walkers and don’t have trouble keeping a loose leash.

Whether you’re looking for a fast paced walk to tire out your adolescent or a slow, scenic walk for the enjoyment of your senior, we can accommodate you!

These walks do not include training, but if your dog sometimes strains on the leash, we will do some loose leash exercises with them during the walk to ensure they’re not constantly at the end of the leash.

Dog Walking with Training

Our Dog Walking with Training option allow us to take your dog around your neighborhood and work on the building blocks of loose leash walking to get them staying by your side like a pro!

We work on attention games, positioning games, and walking games to help your puppy learn and practice their loose leash walking.

Even if your puppy doesn’t have issues walking with a loose leash, these walks can also be a great opportunity to get your dog working around distractions and helping them learn to pay attention to you as you go.


We offer classes for dogs of every age and skill level that teach your dog basic obedience as well as sport specific classes like Rally, Scent Work, and Parkour.

We also offer private lessons which let you pick and choose what you would like to work on. It could be as simple as learning more about your puppy or training impulse control, relaxation around other dogs, and more!

It’s kind of hard to write this because what Ginger has done for me & my dog is so big it’s truly hard to fit into words and just overwhelming to think about. I guess it’s pretty much like the proverbial “pebble in the pond” or “ripple effect.” One in home visit with her led to so many positive changes.

I love what they do here. Amazing work with animals that is science based and effective. I would recommend them to anyone!
