Trail Walks

Trail walking can be beneficial to a dog's health; physically, mentally and emotionally. Just by sniffing, the seeking system part of their brain, is activated! There is always so much to seek on a trail! Trail walking is rejuvenating and invigorating! It reduces boredom that can lead to destructive behaviors. These walks are terrific for high energy dogs! So that when they return home, they will be calm and tired. It's a win-win!

Request a trail walk with Aubrey's Ark, you will be so happy with the beneficial results for you and your dog!
