How long are the adventures hikes?
Adventure hikes range from 1.5-2 hours in length depending on the activity level of the dog group. You can plan on the dogs being away from home 3-6 hours every day.
Do you mix small breeds and large breeds?
Depends a lot on temperament and size. This will be case by case as some small dogs do great with a pack of larger dogs. However, if the dog is not comfortable with larger animals I will have a separate adventure for the smaller breeds.
Do you take behaviorally challenging dogs?
(Depends on the problem) I screen the animals I take on adventures very thoroughly and will be able to answer this question when I visit your dog for a meet and greet consultation. Absolutely no aggressive dogs will be taken on group hikes.
How many dogs do you take at once?
Right now my group sizes are ranging from 4-6 dogs per day. My capacity is dependent upon the dogs in the group. I can handle as many as 10 dogs off leash at a time. However I am sensitive to my impact on the trail and others. I take the doggies to places with minimal usage and typically see more deer than people.
