What we're about

Trails ~N~ Tails & it's organizers welcome you to our group!

This group is open for anyone wanting to hike or participate in dog friendly events.

Here we offer opportunities to get a better behaved pet with real world experiences through hiking and socializing. If you need greeting skills, leash skills or just want to join a group of avid dog lovers we welcome you to participate. If you have a dog and want to do more with your dog regardless of breed, size or ability. There is a trail or event to cover a wide variety of interests and training opportunities.

Activities include:

HIKING - Trail hikes generally occur in East Mesa including Tonto, Usery & Red Mountain Intergenerational Park. Each hike varies in length, duration and ability which is outlined in the event description. Anyone wanting to bring their dog(s) are welcome to do so. State Law Requires Dogs to be on leash. *Most importantly— For the safety and well being of all participants we discourage participants who’s dogs respond poorly to other dogs; do not have reliable cues or tend to engage in hard escalating play.

DISCLAIMER—Participants understand the inherent risk and participate at their own discretion. All persons are responsible for the safety and well being of him/herself and his/her children & pet(s). All Trails~N~Tails sponsor's, affiliates and organizers hold no liability to anyone attending events or other sponsored events which it promotes.

EVENTS - ~We attend annual events .... and pair them with a hike.(either are optional) Your dog get's the exercise it needs which enables them to partake in other activities that provide added socialization.

~We walk as a team during fundraising dog walks that support foundations such as the Humane Society, a local shelter or Cancer Research.

~We sit in as spectators or participants at Pet Shows or dog sporting activities like Frisbee, agility, obedience, training etc.

~We meet at parks for socialization and energy release; or our favorite swimming hole for a romp and a ball throw.

- We engage with other community members about being a responsible pet owner and support one another when our dog's may not be acting optimally.
