Part Of the Family
We know your dog is a big part of your family and we hope to make them a big part of our pack pup family also. Have your pup join the pack that fits.
More than just a hike
Every hike is an opportunity for your dog to have a enriched social experience with other pups that fit their individual social dynamic. That is why we focus on creating small “packs” of pups that bond with each other to create an enjoyable experience while out on the trail
We only use positive Reinforcement practices while working with your dog. We believe that harsh training techniques set a dog up for failure in the long run.
What’s a Pack hike?
We form small packs from 3 to 6 pups that work well with each other. So everyone doesn’t just get an on leash hike experience, they get an experience where they get to run around and play with their friends. While also learning how to play safely with commands and recall.
Meet & Greet
This is the first step in making your dog a PackPup! This is an opportunity for us to meet and chat about your pups needs.
One hour on trail pack hike, we often visit Tilden, Sibley, beaches and Point Isabel. If you have two dogs in the same household we offer hikes at $35per dog.
Starting at 70$
Train to Trail
We get your pup ready for off leash hikes, we focus on behavioral trainings such as recall so your pup can enjoy the open spaces safely.
Meet the Owner
I’ve always had a passion for animals since I was a little girl. I would constantly ask my mom about getting a new animal to bring into our family. From dogs and cats to turtles, birds, mice and hamsters. When I was 16 I became a service dog trainer and service dog puppy care taker. Where I learned my deep passion for training dogs. When I turned the age of 18 I started working at my local humane society, where I moved to the position of a temperament trainer for new dogs. At the age of 20 I started working with dogs primarily focused on positive reinforcement training methods and doing hike groups. I’ve developed my own training methods and techniques that have proven to be successful with many pups.
From Our Packmates
Olivia is a natural! She has been involved with animals her whole life, and a professional dog walker for @ 5 years. She knows so much about dogs and their behavior– and is always able to answer a question or give advice about anything we need regarding our 2 dogs, one of which is handicapped.
They both love her to pieces! She is calm, kind, and warm, and has also been super professional and careful during Covid. She specializes in taking dogs on hikes in small packs, and is great with training them for their hikes. They have so much fun, and come home happy. I totally trust her with my dogs, and I really recommend Olivia!
Olivia has been our dog walker/whisper for the last 2 years. We saw a significant obedience shift in our doggy, Gladys, under her care (the biggest is recall). We appreciate the pictures and report updates after each walk. Olivia is super communicative, accommodating and approachable. I know Gladys has a lot of fun on her hikes because she comes back exhausted with slobber all over her face, she’s a Border Collie so likes to give it her all. Super grateful we found Olivia and Pack Pups. Highly recommend her for your fur baby.
Olivia has been walking our shiba inu pup, Dino, since he was 6 months old. He loves his time running around with his buddies off leash. Olivia has also done a wonderful job training him to re-call, which has been very helpful for us as well. She picks him up and drops him off promptly, posts real time stories to Instagram so I can see him having fun and gives us a summary of their hike each time! I especially appreciate that during the cold rainy months, when I don’t want to walk my dog for an hour, Olivia is there to walk him! I recommend Olivia to all our dog friends!
We’ve been sending our dog Tommy on Pack Pups hikes 3x a week for 6 months now and we couldn’t be happier. We’ve tried a bunch of different types of daycare and walking and this has been the perfect fit for Tommy and for us. It’s a lot less overwhelming for him than daycare but burns way more energy and he gets to socialize more than just a regular walk. Olivia is really great at showing him love but also making sure he’s being well behaved with recall and loose leash walking. She must have the patience of a saint because she puts up with his nonstop insistence on playing fetch. We always look forward to reading her reports after every walk and seeing how happy Tommy looks in all the photos!
