Two Doggie Lovers. One Doggie Vision.
Sure our dogs depend on us for the basics; food, water, shelter, protection and of course love! But they also depend on us to provide them with an ENRICHED AND BALANCED LIFE, including regular exercise for their bodies, mental stimulation for their minds and companionship for their gigantic doggie hearts!
Coming from the corporate world, we know all too well how challenging it is to make every day a fabulous day for our doggies. It’s rough (note we did not say ‘ruff’!). Leaving your doggie home all day, fills you with guilt. Being greeted by a high energy dog at the end of a long day, fills you with exhaustion!
That’s why we created Hike Doggie.
A team of dedicated professionals, brought together by a love for animals, and empowered to do good for the community.
“My dogs love their trail hikes with Kath. As if it’s not enough fun to be out in the fabulous Colorado outdoors getting a good workout, there are always healthy doggie treats as well! Kath is always prepared for every eventuality and I know my dogs are in excellent hands. A hike with Kath is definitely the highlight of their week!” – Liz, Golden
The safety of your doggie is of the utmost importance. We are certified dog walkers with extensive training in dog related first aid. We also know a thing or two about how your pup thinks and behaves.
Pass a hands-on practical exam, including walking multiple dogs on and off leash in challenging situations while demonstrating the ability to maintain voice and leash control, keep the dogs safe, and ensure every dog in their care is having a great time.
Pledge to use only humane training approaches, demonstrating our commitment to use only scientifically sound, positive training methods with all dogs in their care.
Pledge to adhere to ethical business practices, always with the client in mind. Focusing on the needs of both our dog parents and their doggies.
All Hike Doggie hikers complete a canine first aid training program with a focus on the principles taught in the Colorado University School of Medicine’s Wilderness Emergency Canine Care course.
