All day adventures at national parks and forests for our canine friends

**Some parks have no reception so you will be updated upon our return.


We offer easy, moderate and strenuous hikes. The size of our hiking groups is 4 pups per pack. Most of our hikes will be on-leash, we will remove the waste according to the guidelines and we will ensure safety for all of our participants and our fellow trail users.

Explanation of hiking levels:
Easy hike:
Elevation gain up to 200 feet at a leisurely pace.

Moderate hike:
Elevation gain between 200 to 600 feet. Leisurely to moderate pace. The hike will have more uphill (steeper) grades.

Strenuous hike:
Elevation gain is 600 feet or more. Moderate to vigorous pace. Longer distance with steeper hills.

We abide by the local rules and regulations and support the trail etiquette that is set by the parks. We are a casual hiking club and we embrace the idea of having the privilege to be in the outdoors versus having a right to be there. We set an example of showing how dogs can excellently interact with other preserve/parks visitors like hikers, mountain bikers and equestrians.

Where do we go?

Our pack leader researches the destination and announces it each month on this page, we go to hiking trails with lakes and streams that are dog friendly, ALWAYS supervised.

Is it safe? Ticks, coyotes and snakes, oh my!

There are unforeseeable elements such as wildlife and we will do our best to keep your pups safe. We are always prepared for emergencies and have our certifications from the American Red Cross to provide first aid and CPR if need be. Please remember that some of our hikes are not for pups that have certain health issues and/or conditions that could endanger their well-being during these adventures.

Our team is always prepared and watchful of potential dangers to our doggies. We even do a final check at the end of the day for ticks, however, we do recommend that you check yourselves after we return to make sure that we did not miss anything. Especially if you have a long haired pup!

There will be some occasional scratches and scrapes from running around the brush and through rocks but nothing serious will be overlooked.

Additionally, we are in contact with park rangers in the parks that we visit for warnings about coyotes and poisonous snakes. Our packs are large so the likelihood that we will be bothered is very small but you do have to understand that there are always unforeseeable risks when we are out in the wild and you should weigh out these risks to decide if you are comfortable with them before reserving your spots.

Pack a bag or doggie back pack!

Pack a snack bag, bowl and a toy (that could be lost). Don't pack expensive toys that could be lost during the hike please. Also, sunscreen or sun block if your doggie has sensitive skin. And of course, feel free to visit Pussy & Pooch to get the best dog back packs at the best prices!

What not to pack:

Retractable leashes and uncomfortable shoes if you chose to join us!

How many pups per pack?

4 max per pack leader, 6 max with assistant dog walker

Off-leash?

Only if the pack leader knows your pup well enough to know (s)he will not run away and not come back. This will be at the discretion of the pack leader in charge. New pups that we don't know well and/or are not in our daycare packs are on-leash only.

Charity Miles, yay...

SPCA LA

The wooftidoo pet services team uses Charity Miles during our hikes and adventures to earn 25¢ per mile that each of us walk.

We will be hiking for the ASPCA. If you would like to join us in this effort please visit http://www.charitymiles.org and/or download the app for your phone!

But my pup can't swim!

No worries, shop at Pussy & Pooch for a stylish life jacket and let us know, we will always supervise your pups while swimming but all the info you can share with us is important.

Availability is limited for our wild thang! Adventures, after your FREE in-home pet interview your pet will be assigned a pack leader and group that fits his/her personality and needs best, or on a waiting list until that group or the package that you request is available.

I live more than 20 miles away from Long Beach but I would like to come!!!

You are welcome to join us, however, your pet must pass the FREE in-home pet interview first. And you can pick up and drop off your pet in Long Beach, we cannot do pick ups further than 15 miles away for this service.
