All humans and dogs are welcome!

(Even if you don't have a dog... or a human)

Community dog walks are on-leash events held at 11 AM on the last Saturday of every month.

These walks are a great opportunity for you and your pooch to practice leash manners, discuss training challenges, and enjoy some beautiful Victoria scenery.

Emma and other pack leaders arrive 15 minutes early to answer training questions and offer technique tips.

First Community Walk?

We can't wait to meet you!

If your dog has behavioural issues or aggressive tendencies, please contact us so we come prepared.

Walks Are By Donation

We try to change the charity we donate to every month, but it's always an organization that helps dogs in need. We've donated to the following charities:

RainCoast Dog Rescue Society
Broken Promise Rescue
Flirting with Fido
West Coast Animal Rescue Society
Victoria Pet Food Bank


Pack Walk Evaluation Fee Waived!

Thumbs Up is currently waiving the $25.00 pack walk evaluation fee when owners bring their dogs out to a community walk.

This will give one of our Pack Leaders the opportunity to assess whether your dog is ready to join pack walks. If your dog requires some training first, a leader will provide detailed package recommendations. Once your pup has improved and been approved by a leader, your dog can join pack walks without any additional assessment or sign-up fees.
