INTRODUCING

A Unique Training & Socialization Membership for You and Your Dog

A comprehensive program for training, socializing, and enriching your dog’s life as well as your own through physical and mental enrichment, outdoor adventures, and education from experts.

Golden Dog Adventure Co. offers the only program of its kind that not only provides positive, welcoming, and safe exposure for your dog to the pack — but also offers an in-depth, collaborative curriculum developed through a partnership with dog trainers, canine fitness experts, veterinarians, and others.

Before We Tell You About This Comprehensive Program For Dogs And Their People, Let’s Talk About Who This Is Really For…

Are you tired of the same old training programs? Are you searching for something different?

We bring dogs and their people together for exercise, education, and socialization in a positive, welcoming and inclusive environment.

You’re someone who believes dogs are family. You want to connect with a tribe of people who understand your needs as well as your dogs. You worry about the health and wellbeing of your dog and are tired of searching for answers online from less than credible sources.

Whether You’re

a first-time dog owner looking for a positive, welcoming, and fun environment where you can properly socialize your dog

a seasoned dog owner who enjoys the company of like-minded people and prefers to walk and hike in nature with a group

someone who loves a reactive or special needs dogs, or whose dog just needs additional space, and wants to feel included with people who understand

Do you love a reactive dog? There’s a place for you with us.

You’re in the right place and we are going to tell you exactly how our Adventure & Education Membership will give you the confidence, tools, resources, and unparalleled support needed on your journey to live a fulfilling and rewarding life with your dog.

With the support of our program, you will:

CONNECT with certified professional dog trainers who offer advice, tips, and resources to help you grow and strengthen your bond with your dog

LEARN positive, engaging, and enriching methods to make dog training fun and easy

DEVELOP an understanding of dog behavior and needs through member group discussions, presentations from experts, and our P.A.W.S. Curriculum

GAIN confidence and skills needed to walk your reactive dog with a pack of dogs and understand their unique needs within this environment

LEARN skills for successfully socializing your dog with a pack of dogs (instead of wondering the best way to accomplish but never really trying)

IMPLEMENT the skills you have learned to everyday situations with your dog to see the amazing progress you make together

BENEFIT from reduced stress, increased happiness, and improved health from spending time in nature

“Joining the Adventure + Education Membership is the best thing I could have done for me and my pup, Guy!
I originally joined to meet a few people and get some much-needed exercise for Guy, but I have been blown away by all of the value added events. Their team does such a great job of offering activities that highlight every aspect of enriching a dog’s life. We love exploring NH trails year-round, learning from featured partners on behavior, training, motivation, and more and making friends along the way. Guy loves seeing his dog buddies each week and I love that I’ve learned more about Guy through our experiences with the club!”

A Sampling of Our Amazing Members

Joining the membership has been a great experience. I have 2 pups, each with their own nuances and all of them have been able to enjoy the outings/fun at some point. Golden Dog Adventure Company’s team is very knowledgeable, caring, and understanding. They have brought on some great partners that have brought fun and knowledge to us as well. This is a great dog loving community, looking to do their part to give dogs the best life possible!”

Michelle
DOG MOM OF BRUTUS & RUBY

So thankful to be able to bring my dog Paige on these walks. Paige is very shy and very wary of humans from having been born feral with zero human contact for the first months of her life. These walks have helped her confidence so much from having solely positive experiences being around other dogs and their human guardians. Everyone is so nice, respectful and understanding that Paige just needs a little extra space”

Alli
DOG MOM OF PAIGE

Awesome!!!! I am so glad that I have found this group. I love the activities, the people, the pups and really the community of likeminded dog people. I had a great time yesterday at the coast for some hiking and swimming. Oh and don’t forget the ice cream stop too. Thanks for the great pictures… that is an extra bonus.”


Kristen
DOG MOM OF MACK & TAVO

The online community vibe carried right into a live event. Considering this wasn’t designed as a meet and greet, it says a lot about the members and the team. Although my dog is not reactive, having a reactive dog in my past, I was just so impressed with the space and understanding people gave. It really allowed for dogs of all personalities the opportunity for fun.”

Chris

Golden Dog Adventure Co. offers opportunities for my dog to interact with other dogs in a safe environment. It is a social outing for me and my dog! I love the monthly experts too.”



Cathy
DOG MOM OF ROSIE

Great opportunity to socialize my reactive dog in a constructive environment. Everyone is so respectful and fun to walk with. I have really enjoyed the live monthly training videos too. I am really looking forward to more outings with our dog Cody! Thank you for all you do!”

Burning questions other members have asked before joining the Adventure + Education Membership

No. Membership opens four times each year – March 20th, June 20th, September 20th, and December 20th – for 10 days only. New members are welcome to join when the membership is open.

When our membership is closed, we welcome new members and introduce them to our P.A.W.S. Curriculum. We work with new members to set goals for their dog’s health and wellbeing as well as their own. We also invite them to experience their first social events with other members.

The P.A.W.S. Curriculum is a collaborative effort between the Golden Dog Adventure Co., professional dog trainers, canine fitness experts, veterinarians, and other experts. The interactive curriculum welcomes and introduces members to the membership and gives them access to education and resources that have been developed for members based on survey feedback.

Yes! If a dog trainer does not adhere to our Core Beliefs & Values, we will not work with them or allow them to connect with our members.

Facebook is the platform we use for our Member Only group. We hold discussions about the Curriculum, offer support, share stories, and stay connected. All components of the P.A.W.S. Curriculum are located on our website in the Member Only section. If you are not on Facebook, you will still have full access to the Curriculum, but you will be unable to participate in the group discussions.
Currently yes, except for member-only events. Priority for limited ticket events is given to members first. Usually 3-7 days after, remaining tickets are released to our Community members and the general public. As the membership grows, we anticipate offering less events to the Community to keep our participation manageable, welcoming, and safe for members.

We collaborate with certified dog trainers, canine fitness experts, veterinarians, pet photographers, animal communicators, and other pet professionals who demonstrate a commitment to our Core Beliefs & Values. Most experts we work with are located in NH, ME, or MA, but we occasionally bring in national experts who offer topics of interest to members.

Yes. Two children up to the age of 18 are welcome to attend Pop Up Adventures, Official Club Events, Pack Adventures and Member Only Events with you at no additional charge.
Yes. We can’t wait to welcome your human and furry family to our special events. As an Adventure & Education Member, you can purchase 3 additional tickets for friends and family at your discounted member rate.

For safety reasons, we allow each participant to bring up to two dogs to an event. There are times when we limit participation to one dog/person for maximum happiness. This information will be posted in the event listing.

The majority of our events are hosted in Strafford & Rockingham County, but we do get as far west as Concord, NH and extend south into Essex County in MA and York County in ME. Occasionally, we will host special events in additional areas depending on the type of event and venue.

Still “thinking about it?”

Dog sprawled out on snow

You want the best for your furry family… like… really badly.

Whether it’s wanting your dog to be happy by providing physical and mental stimulation to keep them engaged or socializing them in a safe and welcoming environment, we are here to support you with fun and exciting options for learning and connecting.

More importantly, you would prefer to not spend your days constantly searching for the best pet care options, up-to-date research, scheduling play dates, and looking for social activities, when we can do that for you.

That’s why you are motivated beyond measure to invest in your dog’s health and wellbeing as well as your own so that you can relieve any stress and guilt you feel when it comes to their care.

I personally cannot wait to guide you
over this next year…

I am a dog mom to a 13-year-old, reactive, Collie/Brittany Spaniel mix, and a 6-year-old Cattle Dog/Shepherd mix who has confidence issues. As my older girl ages, I worry about her quality of life.

Loving a dog has literally transformed my life…and I imagine it has transformed yours too!

The people, dogs, and experts I have connected with over the years have been so supportive.

If you love an amazing dog and want to give them the best life possible, then you are golden.

Our membership will provide you with the tools and resources you need to be successful at providing the best loving and caring environment for your pup.

I look forward to meeting you personally inside the membership and on the trails.

All my best,
