Beginners Guide to Hiking with your Dog

Here is the next in my series of posts for the brilliant Puppy Tales. The third in my adventure series for Puppy Tales is a Beginners Guide to Hiking with your Dog.

“Have you ever wanted to try hiking with your dog, but thought it would be too hard or didn’t know where to start? I’ll let you in on a secret – hiking with your dog is actually just walking your dog on dirt tracks! Ok yes, it also generally involves rougher terrain, steeper inclines and tends to be more remote than your average daily walk, but hiking with your dog really is just another way of walking your dog.
