Dog Hiking for Canine Fitness
Pant & Wag's spirited and enjoyable hikes through the most dog-centric locations in Washington, DC, are some of the favorite workouts of many of our dog-clients. The smells, sounds, and sights of being out in nature mentally stimulates your dog, while the hike provides an excellent strength and endurance workout. The uneven nature of the trails will also help your dog increase his balance, strength, and coordination.
For the safety of your dog and as required by law, he or she will never be off-leash. Water breaks will be taken whenever appropriate to avoid over-exertion. Dozens of different trails will be used to keep your dog both physically stimulated and mentally engaged.
A weighted doggy back-pack may be used to intensify the work-out and to give your dog a sense of purpose. For an even more advanced exercise, hikes are often combined with running and/or a hill climb and descent exercise.
While dog daycare and dog walkers in Georgetown and Washington DC use a 'cookie-cutter' approach and treat all dogs the same, Pant & Wag fitness programs are developed exclusively for your dog.
Sign-up today to get your dog hiking in a unique, enjoyable, and highly beneficial aerobic manner.
