Adventures

For well-socialized dogs six months and up.

Our Adventures will allow your dog to dash through meadows, zig-zag around trees and boulders, leap in rivers, and practice off-leash recall. Includes pick-up, drop-off, and two hours of amazing cardio for your pup.

Service includes…

  • Pick-up and Drop-off
  • Two hours of active adventuring in the Oregon wilds with a licensed, bonded, and insured rewards-based dog trainer (with pick-ups, drop-offs, and transportation to the adventure site, dogs are usually out of their home for approximately 3-4 hours)
  • Garmin satellite GPS tracking
  • Off-leash recall practice (coming when called)
  • Reinforcement of desirable behaviors (sit, down, come, drop it, leave it, etc)
  • Management of undesirable behavior (jumping up, resource guarding, leash reactivity, mouthiness, bullying, mounting, etc)
  • Midday meal and/or meds if desired
  • A ratio of four or fewer dogs to one trainer
  • Photos of your dog's adventures
  • Ridiculous amounts of fun

Adventure dogs must be...

  • screened and approved by Dog Adventures Northwest through a free 30-Minute Evaluation
  • up-to-date on vaccines
  • content to share toys, space, and low-value treats with other dogs
  • dog-social and people-social (your pup doesn’t need to be the life of the party, but we do need to know that your dog and the other dogs in our care will feel safe at all times)

Rate: Adventures are $75 for one dog. Send two dogs on an adventure and the second pup is 50% off. Schedule at least one Adventure per week, and get 10% off each adventure.

Please note that almost all of our pups are on a regular and recurring weekly schedule, and adventure on a consistent day (or days!) every week. Every-other-week Adventures are trickier to schedule, and are subject to trainer availability. A la carte adventures are only available for existing clients.

New off-leash adventure clients are charged a one-time $50 fee for satellite GPS equipment maintenance. To learn more about the Garmin Astro, you can check out the handheld unit here and you can see the collar here. Note that Dog Adventures Northwest is a force-free organization; these collars do not have any kind of "shock" or “stim” capacity.

These guys rule! We have been using them since we moved to Portland a couple months ago. Jamie has been hiking our buddy Dingo once a week and he always comes back worn out and happy. She sends us lots of photos of him having fun on the trail with other dogs and provides a report for how he did. Is it grade inflation when he always gets A's? Nah, I think he is just that good. They do overnight dog sitting as well, and Jamie has taken Dingo when we are both out of town. We trust her completely with him!

Dog Adventures Northwest is an amazing service. We have a high-energy, smart puppy who needs a task to stay focused. These adventures are perfect. They allow for great socialization with a small cohort of dogs while also taking them to a variety of new location and experiences. The dogs are allowed to roam and explore while still have basic training reinforced in a distraction filled environment.

The staff is caring and passionate about what they do and treat the dogs like their own. Every time our dog sees John she squeals with joy. We feel so lucky to have found this company and look forward to seeing the photos of our pup each week enjoying the fun. Thank you, Dog Adventures Northwest.
