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)!

Chiller - Black Lab, male, 3 years Lucy (see photo) - hound, female, 7 years Gibson - shephard mix, male, 15 years (does not go on long hikes anymore)

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 hope to discover new trails and interesting people by joining the group. I can contribute my knowledge of hiking trails in the area.

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...

In the summer my ideal day outdoors definitely involves water. That's why my favorite hike is in Prince William Forrest Park along the creek (don't remember the name of the trail), which leads to a nice pond/lake. I really enjoy watching my dog swim.

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... ???

no

Introduction

Hi Alex, well, I'm from Germany and I've been hiking since I learned to walk. My dad used to "make us" go on hikes every Sunday, which I really dreaded as a teenager. Apparently though, it's in my blood, because I'm happiest in the woods.
