ABOUT THE EVENT:
This Official Club Walk will be the last one offered in 2021. If you are one official Club event away from earning your Club T-shirt then this is the one to attend.
Join us for a 1.3 mile walk at the Barrington Town Forest with Red Pointy Dog Training. This easy loop trail includes many natural and manmade elements that can be used for Dog Parkour.
Through Dog Parkour, dogs get introduced to the world of jumping, climbing, balancing over, crawling under, and going around different obstacles. Depending on the weather, we will include several exercises and stretches for dogs on our walk.
Dog Parkour instills confidence and strengthens the human-canine bond. Dogs who participate in parkour oftentimes gain confidence and learn how to better and more safely move their bodies when active. This activity also helps dogs to create a unique bond with their people while enjoying more time outside.
Participants will receive an entry towards our December giveaways (must sign in), which will be drawn on January 3rd.
Please note that the leaders of this event are not and do not claim to be certified professional dog trainers.
This trail rating is Level 1-1.5. We will walk trails that are relatively flat, with some inclines. Many trails are narrow. Trail has an elevation gain of 88 ft.
