What we're about

These monthly hikes invite you to get out and be active and social with your dog. Feel free to ask for dog or fitness training tips too — I'm both a dog and personal trainer! In addition to these pack walks I also offer workout classes for people and their dogs, dog training classes, private dog training, and have a growing library of online dog and fitness training videos.
Find out more about my services at www.feetandpaws.com
Hope to see you and your pup at the next Feet & Paws Pack Walk!
Dogs must be on a 6-8 foot standard leash.  Retractable leashes and slip collars not allowed. 
Always bring water for you AND your dog (don't forget a bowl).
Please note that we have now added a liability release on the pages section of the web site and will also ask that everyone read, understand and agree to the release for each hike. Please take moment to review the liability release. We appreciate everyone's understanding and co-operation regarding this.  

Have a DINOS, Dog(s) In Need of Space)? We abide by the Yellow Dog Project.  I will have yellow ribbons available for anyone who wants one! Find out more at https://dogsinneedofspace.com/
RSVP/Cancellation Policy: If you cannot make a hike and have already RSVPd as going, please cancel as early as possible. It works best if you change your RSVP on the specific MeetUp event rather than sending an e-mail or text. 
That being said, I understand that unforeseen circumstances can come up at the last minute, so each member is permitted 3 no shows. Once you have more than 3 no shows, you will be removed from the group. This is out of consideration to your fellow hikers as well as myself.
