Does your dog have an endless amount of energy, suffer from separation anxiety or just needs a change in their routine?

Boredom is the leading cause of behavioral issues. Hiking boosts your dog’s physical and mental health through socialization, exercise, and stimulation.

In addition to a ‘paw’some physical workout, dogs benefit from spending time in nature which is proven to reduce stress and anxiety.

We offer hikes 5 days a week. Our hikes are 4 to 6 miles long depending on the fitness level of the pack and pick up and drop off is included in the Los Angeles area. Dogs are guaranteed to come home tired.

Canyon Hikes - FAQs

Can I attend?

No, we designed our classes so dogs can get enrichment even when you are busy. We pick up from home, work, or daycare.

How long will my dog be gone?

Dogs are away from home or office for 3 to 4 hours depending on the pick up and drop off routes.

Which trails do you hike?

We choose trails based on our driving routes, weather conditions, and the fitness level of the pack. Some of our favorite trails include Kenter Canyon, Griffith Park, Sullivan Canyon, and Kenneth Hahn.

Who are the sports leaders? 

All of our Sports Leaders are employees who go through months of training before leading excursions or classes.

What if I can’t afford every day?

Our classes provide much-needed enrichment, so even if your dog only goes once or twice a week, they will benefit from the added exercise and simulation.

What if my dog can’t hike 6 miles?

We offer Low Impact Hikes on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons. These hikes are with a smaller group and are only 45 minutes. Perfect for puppies and dogs new to hiking.
