Hiking with Your Dog: State by State Guides
Posted by Brooke Spater on 8th April 2019
Did you know that by 2060, day hiking is
projected to see the greatest rate of growth in adults out of any outdoor recreational activity
according to the American Hiking Society?
As the dog adventure experts, we know that many people want to include their pups in these hikes too. After all, what makes a dog happier than endless
sniffing opportunities and varied terrain over which to roam? Enjoying the
great outdoors with your dog is one of the best ways you can bond. Hiking
through the wilderness together improves your health, brightens your mood, and
brings you closer together.
Here at Kurgo, we’ve created hiking guides by state and region. We are constantly adding to
this list, so if you don’t see your state or region, please let us know and
we’ll try to add it.

Trying to decide which is better for your dog—a collar or a harness? The short answer is: You may need both. It really depends on the size and temperament of your dog and what it takes to maintain safe control of him.
A dog barking in the backseat of the car can be a real nuisance—and even a hazard—for human drivers. But for dogs, barking is a way of communicating. In order to put the kibosh on all that annoying barking, we first need to understand why our furry companion is barking to begin with.
