90 min. hike
*Transportation fee is negotiable and reasonably determined based on your proximity to park.
Hiking Excursions offer longer, more physically demanding exercise and socialization for dogs who need or want it along the trails of close by Regional and State Parks.
I am an avid hiker and regularly hike with my dog, Myah, at Afton State Park, Lake Elmo Park Reserve and Ravine Regional Park. I am open to any park within my Service Area denoted on the website. It would be preferred to have your dog be social and be able to hike along with my dog. Individualized can be negotiated.
Unlike neighborhood individual dog walks, hiking will provide more exercise and stimulation plus the opportunity to encounter and socialize with other dogs passing by on the trails. Basic training and leash manners will be positively reinforced, teaching them skills for staying calm and controlled in more open trail environments. My dog could actually act as a “mentor buddy” as she has years and many miles of hiking experience!
