Hiking with your canine is one of life’s greatest joys. Most dogs love hiking in the great outdoors and would love nothing more than to explore it with their favorite human.
However, if you take your dog out hiking, you will want to be sure you are adequately prepared and that you canine is in good hiking condition before hitting the trails. Not only does your dog need to be healthy enough to handle the hike, but they also need to know some basic training to keep them safe.
It is often surprising to find out that dogs are not allowed on all hiking trails; I know it was to me. When I think of hiking and camping, I think of it as a perfect way to spend time with my dogs, doing something we all love. But after doing some research, I found out that not all parks and trails allow dogs, especially national parks, though there are a few exceptions.
