Let me help insure that your dog is getting all the mental and physical acticity they need. I will pick up your dog wherever is most convenient for you, and return them to you tired and happy. You take care of you, and I will take care of them.
Our first step will be a brief free Meet-and-Greet so that that we all have a chance to get to know each other. I will assess your dog's leash manners, and fitness level so we know what hikes will be best suited to your dog. I will also go through a brief questionnaire with you to make sure I know as much as possible about your dog. In addition, I will get your veterinary information including vaccination history.
Once we complete that, let me know what days and times you would like me to pick up your dog for some outdoor fun. Each day will have a rotating location, so that dogs will not always repeat the same hike, even if they always hike on the same day.
Doggone On A Hike is a great alternative or addition for dogs that attend daycare. Many dogs grow tired of the same routine day after day. Other dogs arrive at a doggie daycare, and spend much of their time laying around or sleeping. Some dogs find being around a lot of other dogs stressful. Others just don't enjoy the company of any other dogs.
Whatever your dog's preferences are, we can insure that your pet is getting a minimum of one and a half scenic miles of happy exercise each and every trip.
Happy Dogs. Happy Owners.

I have created this company with the goal of providing top notch dog fun and exercise, with the added benefit of a tired pooch at the end of the day. In fact, if you feel your pet did not enjoy their nature hike, I will return your money!
