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)!

My fiance and I adopted Sawyer in early 2010. He is half lab, half mystery (Coonhound? Dobe?), neutered, and is about two/three years old. Loves all humans (especially small ones with ice cream hands) and all well-behaved dogs.

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'm looking forward to learning about new hiking trails, meeting new people, and taking Sawyer on new adventures. I can contribute snacks! Human and otherwise.

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...

Off-leash for Sawyer, varied terrain for myself with some elevation change. Water is always nice in the summer. Ideal day is good morning hike, nice lunch, then a quiet afternoon with an exhausted puppy.

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... ???

Sawyer has completed several obedience and skills classes including rally. He doesn't have any titles or certificates.


My name is Melissa, my dog's name is Sawyer. We've been hiking pretty consistenly for the last couple of years and really like it.
