Hiking with Dogs Workshop

Hiking with dogs is one of the BEST things about living in Northern Nevada! Join us for this free workshop that covers safety considerations, trail etiquette, essential training, and gear – so you and your dog can enjoy your time on the trail.

We will discuss:

  • Leash laws: when you have to use a leash and when you can skip it
  • How to share the trail responsibly with other trail users
  • How to respond to other people’s loose dogs (or children)
  • Essential training for outdoor adventures, including coming when called and polite leash walking
  • Gear to make your trips fun and easy (Did you know there’s a coat that keeps your dog cool? And a way for your dog to carry his own leash?)
  • First aid for the trail

When: Saturday May 14 from 4:00pm – 6:00pm

Where: Fur and Feather Works Training Center

Please note:

  • The workshop is FREE, but please RSVP so we know to expect you.
  • Please leave your dog at home. They will enjoy putting what you learn into practice, we promise.
  • All you need to bring is a way to take notes and a sense of humor!

Call (775) 420-2322 or email us to RSVP today!
