Time to get outside!

Fall has arrived!

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a awesome summer with family! As always, it went by so fast and here we are now making our fall plans. Fall is the perfect time to try some new activities such as  hiking with your pup. Activities like this are not only beneficial to your health but they strengthen the bond between you and your pal. Before trying any new activities with your pup, always consider safety and make sure it is something he or she will like. Not all dogs will like hiking, some dogs like my girl Dee would rather cuddle on the couch and take short walks. Here are some locations with some great trails:

 

Gunpowder Falls State Park- no need for a road trip. We have this park right down the street from us with many trail options. Start your weekend morning off right with a nice hike.

 

Harpers Ferry in West Virginia is a great day trip to go with your pup. There are a couple of different hike options. The views are incredible- pack a lunch and hang out overlooking the little town.

 

Asheville, NC- Take a long weekend and go to Asheville, which is right next to Blue Ridge Parkway. The hikes are endless and the town is dog friendly with some breweries that are dog friendly. What’s better than sitting down with a nice beer in town after taking in some of those gorgeous views with your pup? Craggy Pinnacle Hike is a short one with great views.

 

If you and your pup are not into hiking you can always look into taking an agility class or visit the local park.

 

As always, if your pup isn’t a fan of outside activities, schedule your pet sitting services and we can care for them while you are away.

About Courtney Boyle-Anderson

After graduating from college with a psychology degree in 2011, I was excited to start my career. I searched long and hard for a job within my field but quickly found out I needed a masters to pursue many of the jobs that were available. Within a few months I began working for a benefits enrollment company and soon moved to a small accounting firm. While the people were fantastic, I soon realized the cubicle life wasn't for me.
