I recently joined Meghan Carney on her podcast Outdoor Minimalist to discuss training tips for hiking with your dog. Most people’s dream when hiking? Being able to let your dog off leash without stress! So, how do you train off leash reliability?
I’m not going to lie- I was INCREDIBLY nervous to go on a podcast.
There’s something terrifying about recording something, and having those words be permanently available to the public!
However, I’m so glad I did it.
Meghan was fun to talk to, and I love how it turned out.
We discussed one of my absolute favourite things: Tips for hiking with your dog!
If you’re going to let your dog off leash, you need to make sure you train off leash reliability first!
This episode covers everything you need to start hiking with your dog. We discussed tips for being prepared, how to train off leash reliability, what tools to use, and other obedience cues that would be helpful 🙂
