Tips for Hiking with Your Dog

  • Research your route for potential trail hazards and regulations.
  • Consider your dog’s physical ability and pick appropriate trails. Reach out to your vet to be sure your dog is able to hike. Also, ask about flea and tick protection.
  • Practice trail etiquette.
  • Pack enough food and water for yourself and your dog.
  • Review the weather and beware of heat and/or cold.
  • Check gear—see if your dog needs a special pack, harness, leash, or first-aid kit. Look into a runner’s leash, which allows you to free your hands so you can ensure three points of contact when terrain is steep.
  • Follow the Leave No Trace Principles for yourself and your dog.
  • Have fun!
