Oftentimes, we work hard to give the dogs field trips. The field trips consist of taking them places where they can run off-leash and really drain their energy.
For those of us in the valley, it’s difficult to find a good place where you can take dogs to run off-leash and let them really burn a lot of energy in a short amount of time. Most of the time, we’re riding bikes or skating the high-energy dogs, which can exhaust us, too! Therefore every so often, we try and get the pack to a place where we can hike them for an hour to an hour and a half off-leash. It’s a fantastic treat for all involved (dogs and humans alike) 🙂
We are always on the look-out for places to go and always open to suggestions so if you have any, fire them to us, would you? Our most favorite place to go is Truckee where the Riggs family used to live and where KYPSAH began back in February of 2004. There are several places to go there (weather permitting) and the dogs have a blast and are STILL tired when we get back home to Woodland.
We will be hosting a page under our Services tab that will boast off-leash dog hike (field trip) opportunities probably starting around February of next year. These opportunities will be specifically for dogs who are under voice command and line of sight at all times. If you have a dog that falls short of making the grade of being under voice command and line of sight, we can give you some training tips on how to get him/her there by the time the field trips begin.
