A tired dog is a happy dog. Well-behaved, too.

Do you have long days where your pup is cooped up inside, and they desperately need a break and some good exercise? Don’t want to come home to a half-eaten couch? Have a working dog (but not a flock of sheep), and need to wear your dog out more effectively? Or, maybe you’ve heard how important mental stimulation and cardio is for dogs, and you’re looking for some support to accomplish this with your busy schedule.

Enter: Saturday Adventure Hikes with Happy Dog Institute. Our Wilderness First Aid certified, dog-loving, dog-savvy outdoor enthusiasts are here for you. Jodi and Kelly will take your dog off your hands for a blissful half day once per month, and take them on hiking adventures. When they return to you, they’ll be blissfully wiped out.

Good candidates for Saturday Adventure Hikes are dogs who have lots of excess energy. They need to be human and dog friendly. They should ride well in the car, as they will likely need to be crated. See below for additional details.

Your dog will love it, and you’ll feel better!

These Saturday Dog Adventures will be fun for your dog – and for you! You’ll get a break, and they’ll get some much-needed exercise and mental stimulation. Jodi & Kelly take their own dogs all over the PNW and know the best spots to burn off some steam.
