Non-rushed, full-length outings that check all the boxes: exercise, enrichment, social experience and decompression in nature.
Our hikes are tailored to adventure seekers craving freedom of movement in nature and a species appropriate reset from our city living restraints.
Our dogs enjoy safe and consistent friend groups led by experienced, kind and professional hike leaders who truly know them.
Our subscription model adds simplicity, automation and peace of mind to our relationship so we can focus on what matters most: your dog.
We struck gold when we found Gisele and her team at Hare & Hound. Our two dogs have been running with her pack three times a week for over four years. Always excellent care, regular updates on how the hounds are doing, prompt attention to any issues that arise, and a warm professionalism that really makes them a natural part of our lives.
Freedom to make choices in how they interact with their environment as we strategically capture and generously reinforce great decision-making.
Nurture your dog’s individuality away from home as they explore the world with our hike leaders and expand their comfort zone.
Predictability promotes feelings of safety and control in our dogs, empowering them with confidence and reducing frustrations.
Small adjustments to a familiar setting and routine promote resilient pups that bounce back quicker from unexpected life events.
Our first date with your dog will be a solo bonding walk where we’ll introduce them to the truck and prep for their big day.
Our ride shows up on your set hike days, we let ourselves in your home with a key or passcode and your dog hops in with 5-7 of their friends.
We journey through the woods in search of wild scents and natural beauty; swim and explore to our hearts’ content before heading back home.
Our hikes take place in non-fenced, multi-trail wilderness areas with frequent access to fresh water: streams, ponds and lakes.
The trails we love and explore are located in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People, and we acknowledge them as the past, present, and future caretakers of this land.
Yes, our dogs must be respectful of one another and are screened accordingly. We find they communicate quite wonderfully amongst themselves and we encourage the dogs to learn from each other with as little human intervention as possible.
Our hikers come to us having already earned their off-leash privileges. We focus on building a positive training history and a consistent bond with each dog so they happily choose to stick around.
We do things a little differently and don’t actually offer casual spots. Our dogs enjoy a familiar set of friends throughout the years with minimum change in the group dynamics by reserving all spots on a set schedule.
