I’ve had an idea for a while now, and recent events have made me decide to follow through with it. I’ve been wanting to have a senior dog hike group. A shorter hike (30 minutes as compared to an hour) on mellow, flat trail at an easy pace.
Recent events have lead me here: my sweet old girl, Mocha is slowing down at the age of 15 1/2. She has been having some trouble on the longer, more technical hikes with rear-end weakness and stumbling. Comes with the age and it’s hard to watch, but she still really loves getting out and sniffing around.
I also have a former client who was concerned about her doodle-dog being too tired after the hour long hikes that she was doing with us last year. I haven’t hiked with her in at least 6 months. I contacted my client and she said she would love to have her dog join the group. Sometimes all you have to do is ask!
I have another former colleague from my days as a nurse who would also like her older dog to join. Hooray!
So it looks like Mocha, and probably Charlie (9) will be joining with these two dogs (for now, and hopefully more in the near future) on Wednesday afternoons.
If you are interested in having your senior dog (8 yrs or older) join our Wednesday hike group, please contact me at: email@example.com or shoot me a text at (801) 673-9856.
Rate is $18 for a 30 minute hike, discounts apply for families (2-3 dogs from same household).
