Welcome to Social Club: A Private Social Community for Reactive Dogs and Their Guardians
Social Club is dedicated to providing a supportive environment for individuals with reactive dogs. This private group was founded in 2014 with the aim of offering ongoing training support and fostering connections within the reactive dog community.
Monthly Training Walks in the Vernon/Coldstream Area
Join me on the third Sunday of every month for an engaging 45-60 minute walk in the
Vernon/Coldstream area. During these walks, you'll have the unique opportunity to:
Practice behavior modification protocols
Reduce your dog's threshold for reactivity
Enhance your ability to read canine communication cues
Work on obedience amidst distractions
Enjoy a leisurely walk with fellow dog owners facing similar challenges
The walks are designed to create a safe, well-
managed setting that benefits both guardians and
their reactive dogs. Throughout the walk I offer
insights and coaching to help you and your dog
progress. To ensure a comfortable experience for
all participants, each walk is limited to just four dogs.
Building Confidence and Community
Social Club walks not only boost the confidence of your dog
but also empowers handlers to develop their training skills. It's a
safe environment to practice and connect with others who share
the same journey. Together, we'll support one another every step
of the way.
Community Care and Support
These times are challenging for everyone, especially for rescue organizations and
shelters that are overflowing with pets due to financial hardships. Many pet owners
have faced the heartbreaking decision of having to rehome their dogs and cats because
they had to make a choice between feeding their pet or paying bills. It's a situation that
could perhaps be avoided for many families with just a little more help.
To contribute to the community and support our doggie friends in need, we request a fee of
$25.00 per walk in cash or the equivalent in non-perishable pet food items (for dogs or cats)
as the registration fee to join a Social Club walk. These donations will be collected and
delivered to Vernon's Pet Soup Kitchen, making a meaningful impact on the lives of pets
and their families in our area.
By participating in Social Club, you're not only enriching your dog's life through training
and socialization but also making a positive difference in our community. Together, we can
train, have fun, and ensure that more families can keep their pets during these challenging
Join us today and be a part of a caring and supportive community that's
committed to the well-being of reactive dogs and their guardians.
