I’m sure you have seen a lot of pack dog walking in Los Angeles.
Have you ever thought about the benefits of these pack walks?
Are you curious how you can even walk a herd of dogs and see that they all behave well?
What is Pack Dog Walking?
Pack walking is so much more beneficial than a walk around the block in your neighborhood with a dog walker. During a pack walk your dog will be exercising and learning at the same time.
Your dog will benefit from learning appropriate social skills, modeling good behavior, increasing exercise and promoting your mental health.
Benefits of Pack Dog Walking?
Your dog will socialize with a different number and mix of dogs and people on pack walks. This mixing of temperaments and personalities helps your dog become more well-rounded and adjusted. Additionally, experiencing new sights, sounds and smells is crucial in developing a dog’s ability to handle new situations. It desensitizes them to noise and distraction and helps them stay calm in crowded streets, or with other dogs. This real-life dog walking situation gives them the opportunity to socialize with those they don’t encounter every day in a safe environment.
How Will Pack Dog Walking Affect my Dog’s Behavior?
Pack walking instills good modelling behavior in your dog. During the pack walks, all dogs are expected to be under control. This is achieved by the Pack Leader helping your dog adapt to its “pack mentality” and exercise these skills by providing consistent leadership. Your dog learns to respect and impulse control too. This environment will allow your dog to improve its leash behavior as well as the behavior of people around it and dogs.
There is evidence that group walks can consume dog energy and keep them in mental and physical health, which is also an intellectual stimulation for dogs to satisfy different types of dogs and humans.
