A regular hiking program not only keeps your doggie happy & healthy, but provides benefits such as:
Our lifestyles have changed significantly over the years, as has the life of our most loved companions. Dogs went from herding cattle & sheep and working alongside us to spending most of their time alone & inactive in our homes and backyards.
Dogs tend to sleep 12 to 18 hours a day. But make no mistake, our dogs are intelligent, filled with energy and they would prefer to stay busy vs lying on the sofa!
We typically arrive home tired after a long workday to chores and the needs of our families, but our dog is seriously well rested and looking for some action!
It’s not hard to understand why many dogs partake in ‘undesirable behavior’ like chewing on our favorite shoes, eating the arm off our sofa, barking, digging and did we mention barking?
At Hike Doggie, we believe hiking is one of the most enjoyable & rewarding activities for dogs. A tired doggie is a good doggie, but a Hike Doggie is a super happy tired doggie!
“Our Lab puppy, Zonker hikes with Kath at Hike Doggie, and it’s amazing! He has an awesome time, and we we’re able to rest easy knowing he is being really well cared for. The best part is- he is always seriously tuckered out at the end of the day, which we all know is hard to achieve with a puppy. He gets so excited when he sees the Hike Doggie bus now!” – Kelly Perkins
