Class Description

Hike with your “best friend!” Join other dog owners in this popular group exercise! Dogs, just like humans are social beings. Regular play dates with other dogs are an important part of your dog's wellbeing. Let's get together for some fresh air and a romp through the woods with your dog.


Bring a leash, pick-up bags, and water for your dog.


No aggressive dogs, please!
