What days of the week are you available to walk/hike (including Sat & Sun)?

No answer yet

What kind of dogs do you have ?

We have two fabulous dogs, a Golden Retriever, and a German Shepherd/Ridgeback mix. Ace, our Golden, loves swimming, chasing balls & frisbees, meeting new people, & hiking with his brother Toki, our German Shepherd mix. Toki is our curious observer of bugs & wildlife, enjoys exploring, running, & chewing bones/rawhides.

Do they get along with most other dogs, large and small?

YES! My Golden will hold toys for small ones to tug. He doesn't engage in the game of chase, unless he's after a ball, or a stick in the water. Ace is VERY tolerant, but will (with a little growl or bark) indicate when he has had enough. Toki will play chase with another dog for long periods of time, especially with puppies, because they usually like to play like he does. When he is tired, he uses people as base, and comes to a dead stop between a person's legs, to take a time out.

In Colorado, where have you previously hiked with your dog(s)?

Pueblo Reservoir, Pueblo Mountain Park, Florence, Westcliffe, Manitou Springs, Broadmoor area, San Isabel, Stratton Open Space, Green Mountain Falls, Beaver Creek....

Do you have any favorite trails or areas for hiking with dogs off-leash?

All trails that get me and the dogs away from crowded areas. I prefer trails that have some access to streams & shade, and are well marked. I enjoy trails that are flat, but also those with some rise in altitude. You can see pictures of some of the places we went last year on my Facebook Page.
