The dog walker’s guide to Adventure

How does one define adventure?

adventure: /ədˈvɛn(t)ʃə/

noun: an unusual and exciting or daring experience.

But let us look beyond the dictionary definition. Adventure is subjective to the participants.

Adventure for one person might seem mundane to another.

In the hunt for adrenaline we have to push ourselves more and more to achieve the same hit.

From the perspective of the dog group adventure is understanding the capabilities and limitations of any knee pack. You have to tailor the adventure with regards to the weakest member.

This is both applicable to dogs and humans venturing into the high mountains or outside of the zone of comfort.

We want to feel challenged but not so much so that the fear inhibits access to the Flow State.

Some dogs og human need no extra motivation to push themselves. Others require a little extra help to get going. Dog Walkers are sometimes like the Personal Trainers for your dog….. we ask them to give that little more effort.

In the Dog World this can be encouraging older dogs to walk up a steep slope. Knowing that once we switch to the downhill they will be running happily behind us.

Adventure should therefore maybe be considered as an attitude or ethos as opposed to a fixed thing.

The adventurous spirit lives in all of us in varying degrees. You just have to tune into it to unlock it’s potential.
