Enriching your dog’s life through exercise and socialization

Did you know boredom is the leading cause of behavioral issues? Our adventure hikes offer small group socialization, exercise, and excitement plus much needed time in nature.

Our group hikes are 90 minutes long and distance depends on the pace and fitness level of the pack. Dogs are on or off leash depending on recall level and trail guidelines.


Most Frequented Trails

Trails are chosen based on availability, weather, and proximity to pick-ups. Our preferred trail is Kenter Canyon because it has wide trail lanes and allows for off-leash play 2 miles from the trailhead.

  • Kenter Canyon
  • Upper & Lower Ridgeback
  • Sullivan Canyon
  • Griffith Park
  • Kenneth Hahn


Timing of Pick ups

Dogs are picked up between 7:15am and 9am. The time of pick up largely depends on your proximity to the trail and the other pick up locations for that day. Our goal is to get to the trail no later than 9:15am in order to beat the heat.

Dogs benefit significantly from having a mix of enrichment and training classes in addition to their normal play schedule. With a holistic care approach, your dog will become more well-rounded, confident, and a better companion to you.


Additionally, dog hiking in Los Angeles offers small group socialization and moderate to high intensity exercise. In addition to a ‘paw’some physical workout, dogs benefit from spending time in nature which is proven to reduce stress and anxiety.
