back when we started our small group with Miss M and Mr B. Since there are so many different dogs with different characteristics, we've added a structure to make it a positive and comfortable experience for everyone. Here are some things we do to positively integrate everyone into the group
New Members Attend their First Walk without their Dog
Define a Pack Order
Limit the Amount of New Dogs Per Walk
This has created a waiting list, but it's most important to us to be able to confidently integrate everyone into the group in a positive way.
Maintain our Structure
structure we learned about from the Hikabulls group, and we know how important it is to respect the space between dogs and limit excitement during water breaks. This helps dogs of all socialization levels to be comfortable in the group.
PS. We also had 2 adorable adoptables join our walks. Meet gorgeous Lola from Chicagoland Bully Breed Rescue and Hossa from Project Rescue.
