Structured Walks

Temporarily Unavailable

Our Structured Walk Program was designed to maintain the obedience that your pup already knows. We believe that having a basic foundation is key to becoming a well rounded individual. Our typical structured walk includes 30-40 minutes of working your pups obedience skills, and 20-30 minutes of their favorite type of play or socialization. This program both physically & mentally stimulates your canine while on their adventure with Personal Paws! There are endless options of how far your pup can go with their structured walks: we work in all levels of distraction, desensitizing and proofing skills in real world situations.

We offer structured walks within the Rotterdam, Scotia & Schenectady areas on Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridaysfrom 8am-12pm. Limited spots are available.

Bonus: Structured walks include pick up & drop off from your home with our highly trained team of canine handlers!
