New York City Dog Hiking - The Answer To A Dog's Dreams

Dog Hiking – A Unique Service For NYC Dogs
No matter the breed, dogs are always happier when they get to be dogs and that means having a chance to explore the great outdoors. Because New York can be such a difficult city to escape from, especially with dogs in tow, we’re offering a hiking service designed to rid you of any parental guilt about keeping your pup in the city on beautiful summer days. If you’d like to send your darling for a midweek day of fun in the mountains, consider joining our hiking club.
Our hiking service is available to pups who live in certain parts of Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens, whether or not they use any of our other services. If your dog is new to us, we’ll need to get to know him with a home visit first. For occasional hikers, NYC Doggies’ dogs will be given priority when space is limited.
Discover some of the features and details about our dog hiking service:
Full Day Of Fun
Let us relieve some of your stress by getting your dog out of the apartment and into nature. Door-to-door our excursions are at least 5 hours and up to 7 hours, and we guarantee that you’ll come home to a tired pup.
A doggie dream come true! Our hiking pups spend 3 hours off-leash running, swimming, playing, digging, sniffing, rolling, tracking, exploring and socializing. We trade city pavement for mountain trails.
Our hikes provide socialization in a non-confined setting, lots of exercise and natural stimulation for all the senses: the ideal prescription for any dog to live a happy life and to exhibit balanced, healthy behavior.
Our hikers are prepared to handle emergency situations. They carry a medical kit at and are trained to keep the dogs safe and in sight at all times. In addition, our dogs always wear GPS tracking collars.
Any Breed, Any Age
From Great Dane to Yorkie, 4 months to 14 years, we’ve hiked with dogs of all shapes, sizes and energy levels. Everyone benefits from our countryside excursions, and hikes are specifically tailored to the needs of the group.
We pick-up our hiking dogs in the morning between 10 and 11 AM, and guarantee home delivery in the afternoon of a happy, worn-out pup.
We thoughtfully group 3-4 dogs together and keep them on a consistent schedule so that the pups have a chance to become good friends (and they always do!).
Our team is active, caring and well-trained. We do this because there is nothing better than helping the dogs we love transform from city pups into intrepid outdoor explorers!
Photo & Video Updates
Watch your pup explore the great outdoors from the comfort of home or office by following our Facebook page. We post daily pics and videos of our adventures for every hike!
We usually take three-four dogs on a hike, and we do not offer individual hikes. They are grouped based on size and personality, and the groups remain consistent so the pups can become good friends (and they always do!).
That depends. The first hike is on a leash to familiarize a new dog with the environment and the process. We then begin to allow the dog to run freely with a long lightweight leash attached to the collar. When and if the dog hikes off-leash is dependent upon the owner’s preference, the temperament of the dog, and whether the dog has had prior off-leash experience. All our hiking dogs wear GPS dog collars.
We hike in New Jersey, northern Westchester county New York, and southern Connecticut. Some of our favorite places are Ward Pound Ridge Reservation, South Mountain Reservation, Ramapo Mountain, and Allamuchy Mountain. Once in a while we also go to parks on the beach for the dogs that love it. The driving distance is between 45 minutes to 1 hour 15 minutes.
The dogs are picked up and dropped off from home and safely transported in our minivan. Dogs are not crated in the car, but sit in the back with a safety barrier and a custom designed seat-belt harness.
In our initial meeting we will discuss all details regarding our dog hiking service and we will gladly provide and encourage you to contact our dog hiking clients. We have a very long list of references!
