Canine Country Outings For NYC Dogs

Canine Country Outings give a dog a chance to be a dog. All dogs need to escape the hustle and bustle of NYC. Country hikes allow canines to enjoy off leash hiking, running and swimming, in lakes, rivers and oceans. So many NYC dogs become bored in dog runs. After puppyhood dogs often stop playing. They need different forms of exercise, the hikes give just that. The outings help maintain healthy body weight, deter poor behavior and make a dog happy. Outings include pick-up and delivery, access to clean fresh water and 3 hours of playtime. Owners will come home to a healthy, well exercised, tired dog. For the same price as a dog walker per hour, your dogs are running in beautiful areas and breaking up their daily rountine. Hikes are offered twice a week, year round. We take all size dogs and have never experienced an unhappy owner.
