OutHounds Adventure Club Mission Statement:
To promote the physical and mental wellness of dogs and people. To be stewards of the environment. To build a strong, supportive and compassionate community.
OutHounds Adventure Club is the vision of Tim Riendeau and Eric Harne. It was born out of the need for something more, or in Eric’s words…”What’s next?”
From Eric: “My wife Kim and I have Charlie who is a Bull Mastiff mix that we adopted in May of 2015. We enrolled him in training with Tim and Lauren at Harmonious Hounds in the fall . Over the years, after every class was completed, I would ask Tim and Lauren, what’s next for Charlie? He’s pretty much completed every class and repeated Manners II just to keep him going. Tim and I started talking one day about what the next step could be. Ideas started flowing, many conversations were had over the phone and in person. We both wanted something that would be ongoing, so that “What’s next” would not have to be asked again, but we also wanted something that would be fun and challenging. Soon, Adventure Club came into vision and this all began!”
What is OutHounds Adventure Club?
Adventure Club is a community of people and canine companions who help each other on a journey by completing tasks and overcoming obstacles along the way. In the spirit of Adventure Learning, we assist and encourage one another to try new things and take acceptable risks.
Who is OutHounds Adventure Club for?
Adventure Club is for everyone! We welcome people and dogs of all skill levels. Even if you think your dog is not ready for this, THEY ARE! As long as you want to Get Up, Get Out and rediscover your inner child, OutHounds Adventure Club is for YOU!
