Off Leash Group Hikes

Why Group Hikes?


During the busy work week, our pets don't always get the attention they need and deserve. Unfortunately, a lack of exercise and stimulation can lead to unwanted behaviors like hyperactivity, excessive barking, digging, and chewing, as well as health problems and even depression in dogs. By signing your dog up for High Tail Hikes, you're making a commitment to your dog's long-term health and quality of life. During our outings, dogs learn and practice appropriate social skills, safely explore their environment, run, chase, play, and have a ton of fun! Over time, regular hiking as part of a pack will result in a calmer, happier, more confident dog. Most importantly, hiking with a pack is a blast!

My dog Kempie adores Liz. She’s always excited to see Liz and to hit the trails with her. She always sends me cute pictures of my girl when I have to travel for work. Liz is reliable, trustworthy, and her love for dogs-big and small-is clear!
