Socialize & Walks
Please Note That we Currently Have a Waitlist for Socialize & Walks. Please Email firstname.lastname@example.org to be put on a Waitlist.
This service offers your dog the chance to socialize with a Pliant Pack working dog during a walk setting. This is great for dogs who may be reactive on leash and for dogs who need to learn to ignore dogs on walks. We can also work on appropriate greetings and play during your dog's walk! All clients enrolled in the Socialize & Walk program receive monthly report cards detailing what your dog has been working on as well as additional steps to work on at home. Clients will receive video and photo updates after each walk via text message.
In order to qualify for our Socialize & Walk program, you and your dog must meet in order to qualify for the Socialize & Walk Program:
A client must have a fenced in yard with a place to tether our working dog. The client’s dog must be able to work with a dog that close in proximity (ie the other side of the yard)
A client’s dog must be well socialized enough that our trainers can pick up the dog in the home with the working dog present
Unfortunately if your dog cannot work within a close distance of a working dog (ie. their backyard), they will not qualify for the program.
Due to the Responsible Pet Ownership Act our trainers cannot leave their working dogs crated with access to water in the vehicle with the windows down when working other dogs. As we can no longer schedule walks logistically regarding distance between walks (ie. There are 5 walks in a given area, but only 3 of them are Socialize & Walks and we cannot leave a dog in the vehicle while doing different services) we are unfortunately having to input a Socialize & Walk premium. Going forward an additional $5 will be added to each socialize & walk to cover the extra distance travelled for our trainers.
All walking clients must have a free meet & greet with our Walking Coordinator prior to starting walks - this is also required for existing clients who use other services. During the meet & greet we will get to know a bit about your dog, go over walking policies, how to access your home for walks and more. To set up a meet & greet please email email@example.com.
Please note that in order to enroll in this program clients must commit to a minimum of three walks a month.

What People Are Saying...
"I would have never imagined that my dogs could learn and play with a couple of other dogs around. Pliant Pack creates new challenges in a safe and effective way so that the dogs can enjoy fuller more comfortable lives. Pliant Pack also sends me adorable updates of my dogs having fun (makes a nervous dog mom a lot more comfortable and able to relax!) and also invaluable feedback on their progress in their training sessions with easy to follow direction on how I can continue the work at home. I love seeing the videos and photos of how well our dogs doing on their walks, playing with new dogs or learning to socialize. I appreciate how they consider everything a learning opportunity and makes the absolute most of every minute they are together."
