Welcome to Hiking with Your Dog!


3 min 54 sec


The goal of this course is to share experiences Ed Frawley and Cindy Rhodes have had over the past 55 years of living with and hiking with their dogs. In this course we are going to tell you what has worked for us and the lessons learned from our mistakes. This course is not is a dog training course. It is a dog-owners training manual. 


This means that we are not going to teach how to train the behaviors we use on our hikes (loose leash walking: left right crosses or contact heeling etc).  Those training for skills  are taught in my Basic Dog Obedience DVD and my Intermediate Dog Training DVD. 

What we are going to do is show you how and when we apply these behaviors on our hikes.


New pet owners simply don't understand the complexities of walking or hiking with their dog. Simply put, "they don't know what they don't know". This leads to problems because they are often exposed to inaccurate "old wives tails".  This course is going to change that. 


We teach how to choose a hiking location that is compliment to a dog's age, level of training, and abilities. We cover hiking or walking in suburban areas, urban areas, and rural locations. Each of these environments have different distractions that require different game plans. This includes bikers, joggers, other on and off leash dogs, predators, and more. When done correctly, hiking with your dog will become a safe and enjoyable experience for both of you.
