If any of this sounds like your dog, we can help. Our off-leash pack hikes are excellent for confidence building, energy spending, socialisation and practicing obedience. If you and your dog need more focused attention, check out our private training sessions, or board and train options.

Home: Welcome

Welcome to Kuri K9 Trail & Train!

We offer:

  • 2 hour pack hikes (8 clients)

  • 1 hour training pack hikes (4 clients)

  • Private training

  • Sleep-paw-vers

We are also pleased to offer small scale board and train programs.

If you're already here, you are probably looking for off leash pack hikes or training for your dog. There are so many options out there, so how do you know if we are the right fit for you and your dog?

Most people's goal is to have a happy, well-mannered dog who they can integrate into family life - spoiler alert - exercising them until they pass out is only a bandaid!

Here at Kuri K9, we address our pack dogs' and training clients state of mind as well as bringing in the all important physical movement. We guide our dogs in learning how to interact with the world and their friends in a respectful and engaging manner. 

This means we are able to integrate a wide variety of dogs into our packs. From shy, nervous or undersocialised and even reactive dogs; to pushy, exuberant, and stubborn dogs. We also LOVE happy go lucky, well trained or neutral dogs which bring balance into the pack.

If your dog needs more help, private training sessions, or board and trains are a great way to tackle these challenges on a deeper level. Especially if you would rather take your dog out yourself!

If this resonates with you, take a look around the website for further information on what we do and how we do it. Then, get in touch using the contact form at the bottom of this page. I look forward to hearing from you!

Kuri K9 is the best off leashing dog hiking and training in Nanaimo! Melody has been so helpful with her knowledge and pure joy for what she does! The hikes are perfect for our dog as she is working on her recall and trail skills with other dogs. I simply cannot say enough about how much I appreciate what Melody does. I do not trust many with my dog, as she is my world, but I am confident with Melody and the Kuri K9 Services 100%
