Let your dog join us on our interactive dog walking adventure!
When we collect your dog from their home in our dog collection vehicles and we run a full check over your dog to ensure the are fit and well for their adventure with us.
They are then driven safely and securely in separate cages to the beginning of their adventure – which may be a woodland ramble or a countryside trek. We don’t repeat the same walk each day, to ensure they get to use all of their senses, especially their smell and sight in new environments.
Their adventure starts when they arrive at the location, not when they are collected from your home!
What happens during an adventure with your Canine Enrichment team?
We socialise the dogs on our small group walks with each other to help you have a well balanced dog, but they don’t spend the whole time playing directly with them.
Why do we do this?
This has massive benefits for you, as your dog will be well socialised on our adventures but won’t want to run off and play with every dog he sees one on your walks!
Instead we mix into the adventures games and training and work on:
- Focus so we can keep your dogs safe
- Recall so we don’t have dogs who run off
- Impulse Control
- Play games with a ball, play chase and have fun!
On our group adventures we only take a maximum of 6 dogs to ensure the individual dogs get the attention they each require and this is only when it’s suitable for all dogs involved. We have a system in place to match up our dogs to their most suitable adventure.
At the end of all of our adventures, we scatter feed food into grass – we do this as it gets them to use their nose searching for the food in the grass and provides mental stimulation at the end of the adventure. It will also in turn will help bring down their arousal levels after the super exciting walk with us.
Your dog will have another full check over after their adventure, cleaned down with our towels, provided with fresh water and a tasty treat for their drive home.
If you want your dog to go to a private field and to spend their time every day just playing with other dogs, then we are not for you.
There is no adventure playing in the same field day after day, and we only do adventures we don’t offer dog walks.
What can happen if you allow your dog to play like this?
It will more than likely make them dog obsessed, they will spend their time hunting out other dogs on your walks and they just want to chase, chase, chase! This may in turn mean he will start to pull on a lead, run away from you on your walks to the other dogs and generally be a blooming nightmare to walk.
We are unable to provide group adventures for aggressive dogs, but we can can refer you to one of our training packages which will help you manage your dog more easily.
This should be reassuring to you as you know you dog will never be walked with an aggressive dog.
Our initial consultation is free of charge

The Ultimate Adventure
This adventure lasts 1 hour 30 minutes and our Canine Enrichment Team will take them to the outskirts of Coventry and beyond to places you will not visit on a regular basis to fully enrich their senses.

Your dog will be provided with organic and 100% meat treats during their adventure with training games and fun games, as well as our standard procedures we do on our daily adventures.
We also provide a Kong after their adventure to lick and chew, as this releases endorphins in their brain which in turn chills them out and relaxes them, and will let them drift off into wonderful dreams of their awesome time they had with us until you arrive home in the evening.
£30 per dog
Limited spaces available on the Ultimate Adventures and are only on a Friday afternoon and must be booked by the Friday before to ensure a space.
Your dog will need to be assessed before they are allowed to join us on the awesome adventure!

''Carries Canines is fab. Carrie is super organised, has loads of knowledge and experience and just loves all animals. Carrie is trust worthy and reliable, I couldn't ask for a better dog walker and trainer and would definitely recommend to all my friends.''
Carrie walks our two dogs for us regularly and I highly recommend her service. Our dogs Simba and Oscar (rough collie and pointer) have very different needs which Carrie has taken the time to understand and then find ways to keep them both happy on their walks. Oscar requires a handler who can manage his instincts to go off and hunt for things, and Carrie is one of the few people I trust to manage him safely off the lead. I'm pretty fussy with who I trust with my dogs, but have never worried about them at all since Carrie took their walks over.
Book in now before the spaces run out!''
