What it's all about

So much more than just a dog walking service

We believe every dog deserves to live their best life and our hikes are designed to do just that. Exercise and socialization are key for a happy, balanced, well-behaved dog. Our off-leash hikes are made up of small groups (5 max) led by an experienced, knowledgeable adventure leader. This allows your dog to run, play, and explore in their natural environment while reinforcing proper dog behavior and social skills (using scientifically proven positive reinforcement techniques). At the end of the trip, your dog returns home tired, happy, and fulfilled.

We offer morning and afternoon trips Monday-Friday, year round in all weather. Each group is over an hour of outdoor time plus transportation time to and from your home. We service Cambridge, Back Bay, South End, and some of Brookline

*We are fully insured with Pet Sitters Associates and our whole team is pet first aid and cpr certified*


The Investment

*Single pups regularly scheduled for hikes four or more days a week receive a $2 per hike Discount **Pups must live in the same household and be on the same account to receive the multi pup discount

Overnights-bonus service exclusively for our hiking clients

Because your pup deserves a vacation too!

We know there are times you have to leave your dog and you need to know they are safe and loved and having a good time, so we offer overnight services to allow your pup to enjoy time away with someone they know and trust.

In-Home Pet Sitting - where one of our staff stays at your place with your pup. House sitting tasks such as mail, trash, and plants can be provided. Cats, birds, fish, etc can also be cared for.

Home Boarding - where your pup comes home with one of our staff to be loved and treated as our own.

All overnight services are available for hiking clients only. Owners going away can be very stressful on our pups. We believe that in order to stay with a pup at their place, or bring a pup comfortably into our home, it is important for us to know your dog well and for their routine to be as normal as possible. Because of this, we will only provide overnight services for current hiking clients.

For new pups to join our hikes

We are an off leash service so your pup should have off leash experience and a good recall. They should also get along well with other dogs and be up to date on their shots.

Need a little work?

Does your pup need help with their recall or maybe needs full off leash training? Do they love playing but sometimes get carried away? We now offer hike and train services as well! Our custom training plans are tailored to your specific needs to get your pup ready to play and explore with our hiking groups safely and appropriately.

Sign me up!

Want to join our hikes? Give us a howl and introduce yourself! **Due to high demand our groups are currently full.** We are growing to try to meet the need but currently have a wait list. To get on the list, simply fill out the form below. Thank you!
