It Starts with the Walk (Hike! with Your Dog Group)

  • Stone House 2800 Estes Street Lakewood, CO, 80215 United States (map)

Registration is required and free.

This Meetup is more than a social walk, it's a walk with a dog behavior focus to address leash pulling, obsession with other dogs, whining, lunging at rabbits, water obsession and other social behaviors. Anything you typically experience with your dog on a walk.

Before we can hike, we have to start with the most basic walk. 

I'm Kirk Cushing, owner of The Dog Masters, a dog behavior consulting company based in Lakewood serving the Greater Denver area. 

We offer a few free Meetups each month similar to our group classes. You can sign up at 

These Meetups give you a taste for what those group sessions at The Dog Masters are like.

We will stop often to discuss behaviors. Creating the behaviors we want and overcoming the behaviors we don't want. There is much to learn from each other.

We'll walk around the park. The total walk is most likely less than a mile. We're focusing on conquering challenges you run into on a walk.

Once you RSVP, we will message you with a link to our online Group Training Release. Please sign it before attending the session.

We highly encourage you to bring your dog, over 2 months old. You can come by yourself if you wish. Without your dog, you are an observer. With your dog, you are are an ACTIVE participant dealing with the same behavior challenges we all face at one point or another. 

The dogs don't count in the RSVP count.
