Guided Adventures

Are you looking to build your's and your dog's bond, keep the day fun, and train in real-world environments? Our Guided Adventures are perfect for you!  

Whether we're embarking on a hike or having a meet-and-greet at a dog-friendly restaurant, our trainers here at Venture Dog Training are committed to bringing adventure to your training lesson.

These events are for advanced handler/dog teams who are looking to incorporate real-world stimuli into their lessons while learning how to safely navigate in public and group settings. 


Safety Guidelines:

All dogs must pass a thorough behavior and medical evaluation before joining our program. The handler must provide 6 long-leash, treats, and a water bowl, and any other necessary items, and maintain general guidance with their dog on a walk. 

We abide by COVID-19 safety requirements.


The dates of our four advanced yearly tours will be announced in January. If you are interested in our mini-tours please contact us directly.

Live Webinar Dates:

Stay tuned for our live Zoom sessions where we will go over hike prep, finding trails, and equipping us and our pet with essential gear and dog safety!
