Please describe the dog(s) you own: name, breed, age, sex, etc... so we can get to know a little more about our new pack member(s)!

Tripper, Havanese mix, 10 lbs, 3 y/o, male, fixed....he's go the stamina and he's durable enough to keep up with the big dogs. Just ask JD, his Akita friend in CA.

What are you looking for in a trail club? Describe what you hope to get out of the group and what can you contribute to the group.

Ideas and motivation on where to go hike that is dog friendly with good conversation and other sensible dog owners.

What does your ideal day outdoors involve? Please give the name and location of your favorite local hike or walk and describe the trail for us. Is it rocky, is there much elevation change, does it involve water, etc...

I'm new to the area, so no local fav. I prefer not having to travel longer than the duration of the actual hike, so near DC is a plus.

Have you and your dog(s) earned any titles or are you working towards any titles? Agility, Canine Good Citizen (CGC), working dog, pack dog, water dog, therapy dog, etc... ???



Tripper loves hiking Desolation Wilderness and along the American River, we need to find places to hike on this end of the country. He stays on leash, partly recall issues and partly he looks a lot like a bunny...
