At Off The Porch we take groups of up to six dogs on pack walks lasting several hours, through beautiful countryside in Chittenden County.

Away from roads, there are hundreds of acres in which to run safely, swim and play together. At times we ask the dogs to walk calmly as a pack as we migrate through wooded trails. Since all dogs, particularly the working breeds, need plenty of mental exercise as well as physical, this is a fun, invigorating walk designed to build self-confidence, to improve social skills and to help overcome phobias.
