Dog walking nature treks
My on-leash dog walking nature treks take us through various parks and trails. Our main parks we go to are Discovery (best park in Seattle), Carkeek, Llandover woods. I love getting city pups back to nature. It's an amazing treat for their senses.
I cater the activity to the dogs on board. If I have a slower-paced team of sniffers on board then an easy-going trail is an order, whereas if I have the go go go pups, a more adventurous trek may be what's on the agenda.
My excursions are unique in the field of dog walking. Instead of just walking dogs around the dog's own neighborhood which can get boring and lacks the nature element that dogs crave, I like to give my pups something more exciting! All my pups get to go to all the parks, so I'm not just taking dogs to a park they live close to. My excursions are filled with lots of variety and an abundance of adventure.
Your dog gets to share their activity with 1 or 2 buddies. I am adamant that my pups have room to explore and enjoy the activity to the fullest so a pal or two tops, is the way we roll! The dogs have different pals on different days so it's a great social experience for them as well and they really enjoy being part of a team. Since I don't take them in big packs, there is no over crowding in the car, just a fun adventure with a pal or two.
I keep you in the loop by sending a text upon arrival for pick up and a text upon return back home. At the end of the day I send photo galleries out to my clients of their pup's adventures.
We explore for an hour at the walking location.
Total excursion time may be as much as 1.5 - 2 hours including picking up a pal and getting to and from our park destination.
$35 per excursion

You need to sign up for regular weekly service. You pick the days and I will mix up the adventures for your dog!
Most dogs can go out on my excursions well into their senior years. When they slow down I can put them with a slower moving group (the sniffers and breakers). When dogs do reach a point that they are no longer able to go out on my treks, I offer a 30 minute visit for a gentle walk and loves. This is only available for the dogs that have retired from my treks.
