DURATION: approximately 4 HOURS COST: €15 / €5 Included: socialization lesson and mobility dog

Get your leashes ready, the 6-legged DOG trekking begins!

Montefiore is the medieval capital of the Conca Valley: the unmistakable shape of its ancient medieval village stands on one of the highest hills in the province of Rimini.  

Our visit begins with one of the most iconic strongholds in the surrounding area: the Fortress of Montefiore, an ancient defensive bastion and summer residence of the powerful Malatesta family. Many mysteries surround the Rock, and we will try to understand them all, retracing its exciting history between conflicts, compelling love stories and even... Ghosts! 

Together with our four-legged friends, we will then head towards the first Big Bench of the province of Rimini; the Giant Bench, totally immersed in greenery and tranquility, will offer us a perfect angle to admire the Montefiore Conca Castle from a new perspective.  

And it is right here, on the slope of these green hills, after treating ourselves to a packed lunch in company, that the fun for our dogs will begin, thanks to a socialization and Mobility Dog entirely dedicated to them! 

Mobility Dog is a non-competitive and non-competitive discipline, open and suitable for all dogs, from the smallest to the largest, and consists of tackling and solving small problems and overcoming obstacles of different types, benefiting the relationship between the dog and the owner and facilitating the dog's integration into urban society. 

We are waiting for you!

The dogs and their companions and friends, being the true protagonists of this event, will maintain priority treatment during the booking phase, until the maximum quota of 15 dogs is reached.
