Dog Hiking Services

Our Hike service is designed to offer your dog an enriching and engaging morning filled with adventure and exercise. Dogs enjoy a minimum of 1.5 hours of actual hiking time, exploring the trails and embracing the great outdoors. The entire excursion, including travel, spans from 9:00 AM to approximately 11:00-11:30 AM, making the total trip up to 2.5 hours.

If you are taking hike as a stand alone and not as part of a daycare package, please ensure to drop off your dog by 8:00AM and pick up your dog by 12:00PM, as a grace period is extended until this time for your convenience. A late fee of $20 will be applied for pickups within the hour following 12:00PM, and pickups after 1:00PM will incur a half-day daycare charge, as we continue to care for and accommodate your dog.

We reserve the right to choose which dogs go on hikes based on availability and temperament of dogs.

Book your dog's adventure today and let them experience the joy of a morning well spent in nature!
