Let's go hiking with our furry companions!

Learn the importance of co-habitation between humans/pets and the environment as well as how to take care of nature around us while walking our dogs.

Learn about the plants around us and what to keep an eye out for to make sure your pet doesn't eat anything harmful to them.
