Dog Hiking


We are now offering daily 2-hour hikes!

We’ve been doing these on a limited basis for a while now, and they’re so popular we are thrilled we can offer them daily! We need either at least three days advance notice to schedule your dog(s) for a 2-hour hike, or to have them on a set schedule for those. We will do the 2-hour hikes morning or midday until it gets too hot, then we will be doing them in the mornings only through the summer and early fall. Please let us know if you’d like us to schedule your dog(s) for a regular weekly 2-hr hike. That’s the best way to make sure we will have a spot for them, and it helps us a lot with scheduling. We will be able to do the 2-hour hikes if we have at least 4 dogs signed up per hike. Of course on any day there aren’t 4 dogs signed up, we will still take the ones who are signed up on a regular 1-hour hike.

The other big news is we are implementing a frequency discount for all our hikes.

It will be based on the number of hikes scheduled each week. Your discount will start at 2 hikes a week and increase a bit with each additional hike in the week. This is our way of thanking you for your business, and hopefully making it possible for your dogs to hike with us more often!

Thank you so much as always for trusting us to give your pups an amazing and safe adventure out on the trails with us and their other pals. We know how much they love it, and we love taking them.


Big fun for your dog. Big relief for you.

Treat your dog to his favorite activity and he’ll reward you with a calm, happily tired demeanor when you get back!

Hike Details

  • Where? We take dogs to romp, play, and tucker out at the local open spaces and hiking trails. We return them home ready for a low key evening with you.
  • When? Anytime that works great for you. Morning and mid-day are most common.
  • How Long? All our hikes are at least one hour. Pick up and drop off are included at no extra charge, so your dog is usually gone about 2 hours total.
  • Group Size? Your dog will hike with an average of 3-5 carefully chosen friends.
  • Hike Times? Our hikes are usually in the mornings during the summer and later in the day the rest of the year. Everyone is home by 5pm. We cannot guarantee specific hike times, but we try to accommodate requests wherever possible.


  • One-hour dog hike $35 and each additional dog $15
  • Two-hour dog hike $50 and each additional dog $35


  • The 1-hour hikes for 1 dog will be $35, and the 2-hr hikes for 1 dog will be $50

Here’s how we’ve become one of Salt Lake’s best and most respected dog walking companies:

  • Fun, safe walks: While out there having fun, we use only positive-based training techniques to build strong recalls, reinforce good manners, and keep everyone safely together.
  • Accountability: We’ve always strived for transparency in all we do. Working as a team, there are always extra eyes on every service, and a culture of encouraging each other to reach for our A games, every day. And we know where your dog is at every moment through constant communication with the team.
  • Walking the right dogs together: We screen dogs for safety and compatibility. Whether your dog loves a good game of ball, a fast-paced trek, or a leisurely stroll, we’ll make sure his group mates are a great match for the most fun possible.
  • Walking neighborhood dogs together: We team dogs up with well-matched friends from their own neighborhoods, reducing time in the car and getting dogs off leash and having fun faster.
  • More than walking: We keep things moving, engage dogs in play and socialization and basic manners training, and explore different places to keep it interesting.
  • A tight-knit, top-notch team: We have incredible, dedicated, knowledgeable dog pros taking care of clients and their dogs. And working as a long-standing team allows us to provide the flexibility, consistency, and reliability our clients depend upon.
  • Responsible practices in parks and neighborhoods and on the trails: We practice good dog walking etiquette. We always scoop poop, we use biodegradable bags to do it, we walk only well-adjusted and friendly dogs, and we even carry out trash with us!
  • The extra mile: This is our mantra! Whether it’s picking your dog up from the vet or dropping him off en route to or from his walk, or staying out a little longer on a beautiful sunny day, we always look for opportunities to go above and beyond to make life better for you, your pets, and our community! Our staff has stopped to help find a lost dog’s family, helped other dog walkers with issues, met a client at their home when they’ve locked themselves out, picked up a dog at the airport, and even brought a client her needed belongings when she was unexpectedly hospitalized! We all want to help, and will do whatever we can, whenever we can. It’s the right thing to do, and it’s good karma!
