|A Canine Hiking Club
|A hiking club for dogs and their owners
We organize fun and adventurous outings for dogs and their owners in the San
Francisco Bay Area. Currently most of our hikes are in the South Bay Area. We
will hike at least once or twice a month on the Peninsula and/or the East Bay.
We occasionally offer walks in the afternoon and/or evenings and training
sessions with a dog trainer. Our sponsors are businesses that offer their free
time to organize hikes, walks and other fun outings for you and your dog.
We are solely run by volunteers.
The Adventure Dog Challenge:
Coming soon! Also check out our website:
A Fitness challenge for you and your dog!
Our Hiking Adventures:
We offer easy, moderate and strenuous hikes. The size of our hiking groups is
10 - 15 dogs and their owners. Most of our hikes will be on-leash (yes, the
human will remain on the other end of the 6 foot leash), we will remove the waste
according to the guidelines and we will ensure safety for all of our participants
and our fellow trail users.
Explanation of hiking levels:
Elevation gain up to 200 feet at a leisurely pace.
Elevation gain between 200 to 600 feet. Leisurely to moderate pace. The hike
will have more uphill (steeper) grades.
Elevation gain is 600 feet or more. Moderate to vigorous pace. Longer distance
with steeper hills.
We abide by the local rules and regulations and support the trail etiquette that is
set by the Open Space District and Santa Clara County Parks. We are a casual
hiking club and we embrace the idea of having the privilege to be in the outdoors
versus having a right to be there. We set an example of showing how dogs can
excellently interact with other preserve/parks visitors like hikers, mountain bikers
We organize small group outings for our geocache fans. Novice or expert?
Join us to find caches spread throughout the Bay Area.
Our Training Adventures:
Join us on a short hike to drain that excessive energy your dog has stacked up
throughout the week followed by a training session and some individual time to
discuss the difficulties with one of our dog trainers.
Our motto: Exercise & Socialization & Training counts for all our members,
canines and humans alike. Our sole purpose is to enjoy the outdoors with our
companions. We focus on basic obedience and dog behavior on our hikes.
This is what our current members are saying:
"Great group of people and dogs"
"There's nothing like taking a long, leisurely hike on a beautiful day through tall
redwoods with your best friend."
"Great opportunity for dogs to socialize, and people, too."
"Great people. Great dogs. Healthy adventures."
"The organizers and people are wonderful"
"We're all wet nosed and waggie tailed!!! Good people, great dogs."
"A good workout for both you and your dogs!"
