Low Impact Hike

Slow pace hikes to helps with dog weight loss, building endurance

Level II
Dogs must be social and have good leash skills
All breeds

Our Low Impact Hikes are slower pace to help with dog weight loss and to build endurance.

Hikes are 60 to 90 minutes depending on the fitness level of the pack and offer a lot of breaks. Dogs are on or off leash depending on ability and trail guidelines.

Most Frequented Trails

Trails are chosen based on availability, weather, and proximity to pick-ups.

  • Kenter Canyon
  • Upper & Lower Ridgeback
  • Sullivan Canyon
  • Griffith Park
  • Topanga Canyon
  • Kenneth Hahn

Just like with people, dogs need to ease into a new exercise regiment. We help dogs get acclimated to hiking in a group and on trail and build endurance.

This class is also great for older dogs, puppies (at least 6 months old), or dogs with former injuries who can’t keep pace with the regular group.

For dog weight loss, we recommend starting off with three Low Impact Hikes a week, giving your dog a day in between to rest and recover.
