I have one dog, a Weimaraner named Sophie who's not quite 3 months old. She's a little ball of energy and we're just now getting her used to walking on a leash. I'd like to take her hiking and eventually camping. I'm about a beginner level, so I'd like for this to be just as much for her as it is to get myself into better shape.
I'd like to meet other puppy owners to socialize Sophie as well as hiking partners. I'm hoping to get into better shape as well as make Sophie a more rounded dog. I think this group would be great at helping her expend some of her extra energy. I think I'm a pretty good motivator and would be good company on a hike and Sophie can definitely provide hours of entertainment.
I'm still fairly new to the area, so I haven't found any hiking spots yet. There is a park up in McLean (I can't recall the name) that runs along the Potomac and has a nice little waterfall. Right now I'm trying to get Sophie into the water, so we've been playing in that park and getting closer to the water line each time.
She's still pretty young and not even fully housebroken.... We're working on basic commands right now, but in the end she'll just be my buddy; she won't be entering any competitions.
Hi! I'm Randa and I'm the parent of a young hyper Weimaraner. I'd like to take her hiking and am looking for like minded people to accompany us.
