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. Not all dogs are suitable for long hikes. Please be aware that some wild animals, such as coyotes, may actually be attracted to the presence of a dog.
