INU'S focus is to offer balanced pack walks for dogs in a safe and structured environment. Between previous work as a pack leader and first hand experience with aggressive behavior, our philosophy is to work with dogs as they naturally communicate and to remove the complication of human interpretation. We seek to influence our pack mentally, emotionally and hormonally rather than physically. We set clear boundaries, focusing on calm, clear and consistent leadership. Instead of relying on obedience commands, commercial tools or force, we choose to change how a dog feels in their perceived reality - focusing on the miscommunicated signals and habits we as owners have developed.
INU wants to ensure that each pack member feels comfortable and fulfilled in our environment. Through a dogs progress in the pack, as well as offering an education to owners, we hope our work can translate to a deeper relationship and trust between you and your dog. Dogs are pack animals and can learn exponentially faster from their fellow canines so we approach training from a dog's instinctual level. Whether you're looking for socialization or exercise, INU is excited to welcome your dog to our pack.
INU is owned by the two pack leaders, Lindsey Schulz and George Peaslee. Currently servicing Sebastopol, CA. (Our Malibu route is now being managed by our dear friend Elisa of The Dog Hiking Club)
Pack walks begin with pick ups from the house, followed by the hour long group walk where we focus on leash manners, socialization, as well as mental and physical work. We also practice calm socialization and boundaries while in the car for pick up and drop offs. Walks are scheduled on a consistent weekly basis (minimum of 1 day/week). Dogs enrolled in pack walks can also schedule free leash and training sessions.
$35 / Day
Day Care provides a social environment for dogs to learn how to play and relax in a balanced and natural state. During their stay at day care, every dog also joins our hour long structured pack walk.
$65 / Day
We offer a comfortable stress-free boarding environment for the dogs enrolled in our Pack Walks where we can continue their walks and training from our home. Boarding includes pick ups, drop offs, and a bath.
$75 / Night
Want your dog to join INU?
Update: We currently have a short wait list to join our program. We are always excited to have new pack members, but take the time to integrate each dog at their own rate to create a safe environment. Please contact us to reserve your pup's spot.
If you have an aggressive dog, we highly recommend working with Brandon Fouche.
For enrolling your dog in a structured day care, contact Gary Cassera of Canine Social Club.
