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)!

Sofie will be 3 in March -- they told me she was a lab mix when I adopted her but I don't believe it. She loves new experiences.

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.

I am looking for a "nice" group of people and a chance for me and my dog to spend time with others outdoors. What can I contribute? That's hard to answer -- hopefully Sofie and I are decent company.

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...

Cool weather, nice scenery... don't care about rocky, elevation change, water. I don't have a favorite local hike as I miss the Sierra Nevadas too much... but I enjoy hiking at Prince William Forest, think Sky Meadows is nice, and also enjoy most trails in Shenandoah NP.

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... ???

We were in obedience classes (in level 4 of 4!) -- intend to get back into that and work toward Canine Good Citizen criteria. We tried agility -- but Sofie, who is usually enthusiastic and loves to race around, jumping over obstacles, was shy... so that was a bust. We may try it again sometime.


Hi -- Sofie and I are looking forward to hiking with doggie friends and their owners.
