    Follow Your Dog On a Walk

    Special Interest: Games TricksHikingOutdoor Play

    Do dogs really follow their nose? Try letting your dog lead you on a walk for awhile and see where he takes you. Be prepared, however, to hold back or ask your dog to “leave it” if he gets into mischief.

    Submit a photo or video of your dog. Where did he take you? Did you see or discover anything interesting?

    Safety: Please consult your vet before hiking with your dog, especially if you have a puppy or a dog that is not fully vaccinated. It's best not to go when it is too cold or hot. Pay attention to your dog's abilities and start slow. Remember to take small and steady water breaks to prevent bloat or water intoxication. And don't forget to check the paws! Watch your footing and steer clear of wild animals. Please follow leash laws and have good recall on your dog.
