Dogs love the wilderness, and if your dog spends too much time cooped up in a small apartment or a way too small backyard, taking time to get them out onto the trail as often as possible is something that every dog owner should attempt to do. Whether you are planning an intense weeklong backpacking trip with your dog or simply going for an hour stroll through your local state park hiking trails, there are a few essential things you need to know to make sure that your hiking trip with your dog goes smoothly and memorably. Below, we offer the top six dog hiking tips to make sure that both you and your best friend have the time of your lives.
Meet Jacie, guaranteed to melt your heart if you're lucky enough to run into this cutie. After choosing which of her favorite toys to take out, she's ready to hit the streets and make anyone that passes her smile and swoon with her strut and love for anyone that falls in love with her. When she isn't out on the town, Jacie is always thrilled to be pampered with pets, laying out to soak up some sun rays, and is sweet enough to give you a kiss just for saying, "Hello." For this and so many other reasons, Jacie takes Pet of the Month for June!
Cesar is one of the most energetic pups at Majestic Paws and that’s the reason our walkers love him. Even though he loves his walks, Cesar would much rather spend his time playing fetch with our walkers in the yard. Normally our visits with Cesar consist of 25 minutes of constant fetch, and even though he’s panting the whole time, we get the feeling that he could go a lot longer chasing after his favorite ball. For this reason, and his irresistibly cute smiley face, Cesar is our King of the Month for April 2017.
Our newly adopted dog is a delight! However, in all the excitement of finding your new companion, shopping for your new pet wasn’t foremost on your mind. Not to worry. We’ve put together a dog supply list to help you round up everything you need to welcome your pooch home. Keep in mind, some shelters might not let you acquire a dog until they know you have the necessary supplies. This new dog checklist will guide you on your shopping trip—including tips for how to choose each item.
Lola is a total diva and a feisty one at that. In her time with Majestic Paws this little queen has had both male and female walkers and always makes the men work harder to win her affection. Once she warms up though she turns into a total sweetie, and one of our walkers favorites. Lola knows what she wants and exactly how to get it. Some days a long stroll around the neighborhood is on the menu and other days its a shorter walk with some playtime and pets at the end, but whatever she is in the mood for she makes sure to let the walkers know and oblige. Lola is one of our most photogenic dogs and always puts her best face forward when the camera comes out. For all these reasons and more, Lola is Majestic Paws first pet of the month for 2017!
Whether he's wigglin' & waggin' at the door or pathetically-cute and in bed when we arrive, Luigi always loves his pets and walks at our daily visits. Though not much ground is covered with his slow n' steady pace, his wobble warrants plenty of pedestrian pets. His walks are about quality over quantity as the sniffs are thoroughly sniffed and the humans are thoroughly watched. His cute and lovable personality are why our walkers can't get enough of him, and what makes Luigi Majestic Paws pet of the month!
Jackson was one of the very first dogs with Majestic Paws, and is still a regular 8 years later! Over the years Jackson has mellowed out considerably, but is always ready to make friends with whoever wants to play. He loves long walks, playing with his toys, and chewing his bones, but his favorite game to play is fetch. Jackson has great ears and can always hear his walker coming, and is always waiting anxiously at the door for his playtime with a huge smile :)
