What a dog needs ...

The Dog Hikers developed a method called Exercise, Socialization and Training (EST). Why has our method been such a successful formula for many South Bay Area dogs? Dogs with excessive energy need to release that energy. If not released appropriately the outcome of their release will have negative consequences for us. Destructive chewing, digging, excessive barking, excessive licking, self-mutilation, hyperactivity or any other number of behavioral problems are common in under-exercised dogs.

Hiking with us means you will get a different dog back home. The exercise provides an excellent outlet for your dogs' excessive energy. The outdoor exposure to people, other dogs, horses, wildlife and the socialization within our hiking group will provide the mental stimulation your dog so desperately
needs and our training will help remind your dog of its manners.

The Dog Hikers is a unique business established in the South Bay to provide services in the South Bay area and beyond.
