Sunday Pack Walks with DePAW:

Anyone is welcome to attend the Pack Walks. We would love to see not only our DePAW clients, but your family, friends, coworkers, and even neighbors! It’s completely FREE!

Pack Walks are a leashed community walk around a local forest preserve or park. They are a way of building our community amongst fellow dog owners interested in meeting new friends, getting exercise for yourself and your dog, and learning better “walk behavior” as well as new leash skills with your dog. These walks are not meant for dog socializing, rather teaching good public behavior.

Pack Walks will be held on Sundays and meet @ 10:00am SHARP with step-off @10:10am. Please bring water for yourself and your dog and flea and tick prevention is strongly recommended since trails can be wooded with tall grass.

Please keep in mind many of these locations are also available to bikers, hikers, horseback riders, disc golf, etc. All will be great distraction training for your dog.

* Clean up after your dog. Poop bags are mandatory.
* Pack walks are for dogs over 4mo. with current vaccinations.
* Leashes must be 6’ or shorter. NO retractable leashes!
* Staying to the right as we encounter others on the trail.
* Keeping your dog a respectful distance (within 2ft of you) and away from other dogs. Make sure to check with other dog owners before letting your dog greet each other. Please do not be offended by a decline.
* One dog per person.
* DePAW is not responsible for the health and safety of your dog while attending this community pack walk.

Dogzilla Contest Winner follow up - Teddy Bear:

For those of you who entered and followed our recent DOGZILLA contest, we wanted to post an update on our winner, Teddy Bear. This is the letter below we received from Chelsea. They also submitted a video they took of Teddy on a recent walk OFF LEASH in public You can find this video of how Teddy now behaves on a walk on our FB page post on July 6th. Click here to go to our FB page.

We are thrilled to have been able to help Teddy and his family find a better working relationship at home. To view the original video submission of Teddy and his "issues", you may view it in the first comment under the FB post. We wish Teddy and Chelsea all the best in both of their futures.

FWD: I wanted to say thank you to the DePaw Staff. I know I brought in a basket of cookies and a note for you, but I thought I would send an email as well.

“Due to health issues, I wake up everyday not knowing if I will be able to walk, get out of bed, having feeling in my body, or just be able to get through the day. Some days I will have to be in a wheelchair just to get around. While these are scary, my biggest fear was being able to take care of my best friend. Teddy pulled when we walked on a leash, which means he dragged you wherever he wanted you to go. He would get in the trash and jump on the counters, so we could never have him out for events. He would even jump on people when they greeted him. Training with Chad and the DePaw staff changed our lives. After wining, I just wanted Teddy to be able to be around my family so he could be taken care of when I was ill or in the hospital. Chad went above and beyond. He asked what kinds of challenges I deal with on a daily basis with my health. Then he suggested what he wanted to do for me and my family by creating a boot camp program for Teddy that would best fir my new health issues. I cried because the DePAW staff wanted to make our future not just manageable, but great! This process has been incredible. Chad has taken the time to ensure I was comfortable with whatever I was learning that day. He not only answered any questions I had about the previous sessions, but would go over them to make sure I was doing the training correctly. You can tell he is passionate about training your dog and training you, so you both can grow to have a better life.

I have had Teddy for not even a week. While we are still practicing, he is already a completely different dog. I leave stuff on the counters, Teddy doesn’t go near it. He doesn’t go near the trash or recycling bin. I have been able to walk him off leash in public places where there are children running around and other dogs. I can let him out my front door for him to go outside without having to hook him up or worry about him leaving the yard. He is still working on not jumping on people, but he has already gotten so much better with it. I no longer worry about being able to take care of my best friend.

The rest of the staff deserves to be recognized too. During Teddy’s boot camp the amazing staff treated Teddy and I like family. I was always welcomed with a smile and they always asked how I was feeling. They never got annoyed with the amount of times I wanted to visit Teddy during his stay, which was like every other day for his entire stay. I could tell the staff loved Teddy just as much as I do, spoiling with him with love.

No words will ever be enough to express my gratitude to the DePAW University Staff! They have been able to do something for me during the most difficult time of my life. Teddy and I love DePAW University”

Kind Regards,
