WELCOME TO TAILS ON THE TRAILS-STL (formerly West County Dog Walkers).
We are primarily a hiking group, but we throw in social events when we find them. If you're ready to go BEYOND THE SIDEWALK and do stuff that is actually fun with your dog, you can find plenty of events on our calendar.
Our summer schedule is pretty limited, just too hot for the dogs to do big hikes. Once the cooler weather arrives, we have a ton of things going on. Please, just READ THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION before signing up for stuff. Our Event Hosts work really hard on our writeups to tell you everything that you need to know, but you won't know it if you don't really, really read what we write.
If you haven't already read our rules, please do so. We enforce these, for the safety & enjoyment of all of our members and pups. You might need to ADJUST some of your habits when you walk with a group of dogs. All of our rules have been written down as the result of some past experience.
Please, don't come with an attitude of "Not my Dog, he/she's never done that!"
Use this link for our rules....
Here's all you need to bring on hikes...
A WELL-BEHAVED DOG ON A SHORT LEASH
RESPECT FOR OTHER DOG PACK MEMBERS AND THEIR PUPS
POSITIVE ATTITUDE & SENSE OF HUMOR
ALL THE USUAL HIKING STUFF THAT ADULT PEOPLE KNOW TO BRING-good shoes, water, snack, warm coat.....
AND...WATER FOR YOUR DOG! (Not good to forget THIS!)
Leave the ego, politics, religion, negative stuff and bad dogs at home and we'll all be able to have a good time!
Just remember, this isn't about YOU, it's about a lot of people and a lot of wonderful dogs. You might need to adjust some of your regular habits when you walk with a group of dogs. If that doesn't suit you, WALK BY YOURSELF! Then you can do whatever you want. When you walk with the Dog Pack, you're expected to be a good Pack member, and so is your dog!
