Back Pack Hikes
Back pack hikes are a great way bond with your dog by giving them a job, the breed is a working breed and both needs physical and mental stimulation, physically the dogs are not carrying much weight, only dogs that are aged over 18 months are encouraged to carry a water bottle and a small first aid kit.
Mentally the dog is set with a task of carrying the back back from point A to point B, the dog is to remain under control of the handler and keep pace with the group.
Our hikes typically range from 5-10km and are generally held on weekends.
Upon members and their dogs achieving distance milestones they are presented with a patch to show the distance they have travelled.
Julie & Phoebe have hiked over 200km together on our back pack hikes.
