A fun walk filled with smells, socializing, and some exercise
Socialize and get some exercise
Group walks are a great option for many dogs and offer numerous benefits for your canine. Group walks provide an opportunity for exercise, socialization, sensory stimulation, and training reinforcement all at the same time. Dog’s get the physical health benefits of routine walks while enjoying time with some of their furry friends. This added layer of socialization helps increase positive association with other dogs, while decreasing aggressive tendencies connected to underexposure to regular interactions with other canines. The group walk setting also provides an opportunity for your dog to practice basic training with our professional dog handlers with the added distraction of other pups, a great way to strengthen command reinforcement. Your dog will also benefit from the sensory input from the smells, sights, and sounds of the area along the walk, which is a great way to keep your dog mentally stimulated and happy.

When you choose a group walk for your dog, we will take the time to get to know your canine’s temperament and needs, as well as learn your family’s commands to ensure consistency in training. You can expect one of our trained dog handlers to arrive at your home on time, 24 hours/day and escort your pup along with other dogs in the neighborhood on a 20 minute or 45 minute walk around the area. We also offer extended 4 hour group walks, during which your dog gets to tour around with our professional dog walker and spend extra time out of the house! Each walk is GPS tracked and can be monitored by you through our fully automated online portal. Group walks will never exceed 8 dogs and all dogs are temperament tested to ensure the safety and happiness of each dog on group walks. Our goal is to build rapport with your furry friend to strengthen our ability to reinforce their training, establish a healthy exercise routine, increase their positive interactions with other pups, and ensure your dog has fun!
Because we will organize group walks with other dogs from your neighborhood in the greater Boston area, like Quincy, Milton, East Boston, Weymouth, and Braintree areas, your dog will not only get to meet its neighbors but will get to know the area as well. This increased familiarization with your neighborhood will enhance your dog's ability to navigate their surroundings to help ensure your pup’s safety if it is ever lost.
Consider a group walk for your dog instead of a solo walk if your pup consistently does well with other dogs, you are looking to increase opportunities for socialization, or you are hoping to further their training in a setting with distractions. A popular option similar to group walks are playgroups for pups with extra energy to burn!
