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)!

Keiko is ~1.5 years old, female, mix of maybe lab/golden/pit bull? She is so happy to hike and run around. Every dog is her new best friend.

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'd love to have an opportunity to go on dog-friendly hikes, on or off-leash, maybe once or twice a month. I can contribute friendly conversation, exchange ideas on dog-related topics, and a great dog!

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...

Mid-morning start, dog hike with some rocks, small stream crossings, opportunity for off-leash hiking, snack or light lunch on the trail (or optional meal at restaurant afterward), moderate elevation change. There's a trail that starts at Fort Marcy (off GW Pkwy) that we've done quite a few times, or something like the Billy Goat Trail.

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... ???

Not yet, although I think she would really enjoy agility training.


Looking for fun, dog-friendly hikes with my 1.5 y.o. mix. She loves to hike!
