Today we’d like to introduce you to Kath Allen.
Kath, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I’m from NJ, went to college in NY, spent three fabulous years hiking extensively in the Italian Alps, eventually chose Golden CO as my forever home and then it happened… I became a doggie parent!
Luckily my doggies & I have awesome Colorado mountain trails right outside our door, so two-hour morning hikes before work quickly became the norm. Sniffing, hiking & playing was the most amazing part of their day… followed by some serious snooziness!! But like most busy corporate professionals, my work schedule frequently got in the way of my doggies getting the attention & exercise they deserved. I knew I wasn’t alone. I knew there must be others who were filled with guilt at having to leave their doggies home to be bored and sad all day.
When my brothers, sisters & I grew up, our parents told us to ‘Get Outside & Have Fun!’ So we did. Often. As a result, we led happy, healthy lives. This goes for our doggies too. They depend on us to provide them with enriched & balanced lives, including regular exercise for their bodies, mental stimulation for their minds and companionship. That’s why I founded Hike Doggie, we get doggies outside and having fun when their parents can’t.
