Hike with your dog for 30-60 minutes. Be sure your pet is in good physical condition.
If your dog has not been on a hike for a long time, be sure to go slow and pace yourself,
increasing duration and distance over time. Check your weather and climate in your area
before you go. Bring water and feces begs. Avoid dehydration. Your dog can help with the
right gear. Dogs can carry up to 25 percent of its weight. Your dog may need extra protection,
like booties, to protect paws, pads and nails. Keep your dog on a leash.
Avoid trails that have bears and coyotes your dog will try to protect you and risk it's own life.
Have a happy and safe hike!
