About Hiking Paws

Imagine if you could get help with your dog to socialize them, exercise them, and reinforce good behavior while you’re away at work for the day.

That’s what we do!

When you bring a dog into your life, they become your family.

But your life gets busy and there are times when you could use some help. Just like children, socialization, exercise, and healthy food and water are important. Maybe you have a long commute added to your already-full day. Maybe your new family member has more energy than you anticipated. Or maybe you have an older family member that shouldn’t really lay around all day. They need to move to keep their bones, joints, and muscles strong.

A Full Dose of the Outdoors

This unique business offers the freedom for your dog to be off-leash and get a full dose of the outdoors.

Yes, special care and training needs to happen in order to keep your dogs safe, but that’s part of the fun! We take pride in our careful assessment process to see if your dog is a good match for what we do. 

A second unique benefit is our pick-up and drop-off service. Let us come to you! We’ve been on the trail and making dogs happy and healthy for the past 11 years.

Your Hike Leader

I have been working with people and animals my whole life. Farm animals, dogs, cats, children in schools, family, friends — the whole lot! Caring for them is my most favorite thing to do. Add any text this is how you’d do it. 

Dogs became a special interest of mine after graduating from college and moving into the working world. I got my very first dog — a black Labrador retriever — who I named Sadie. My sweetheart of a girl is now 13 years old. She was my baby before I had babies, and she’s my inspiration for the creation of Hiking Paws, LLC. Training her, taking care of her, going on outdoor adventures with her — it all fuels my passion for taking care of other people’s dogs. When I hike with your dog, I treat them just like they’re my own. Every adventure I take is filled with funny moments, happy body language (tails and tongues), and contagious energy.

It’s pure joy!

Take a Look for Yourself!

Building the right pack for your dog is important to us. Their safety is our primary concern. Getting the right blend of dogs in the pack makes the experience enjoyable and safe for everyone.

We make sure dogs are neutered and spayed to help keep gender-behavior tendencies at a minimum. Your dog will be off-leash, so recall is important for their safety. 

  1. Where do you live? Bernardston, Greenfield, Deerfield, South Deerfield.
  2. Is your dog spayed or neutered?
  3. Have any recall experience (come when called)? If not, let’s talk about that.
  4. Enjoys riding in a vehicle.
  5. Gets along and enjoys being around dogs and people.
