Tips for Hiking With Your Dog

Hike smart: Keep your dog under control at all times. She should always be on a short leash (7 feet or less), or within eye- and earshot if the trail allows it and your voice control is legit.

Start small: Dogs are just like people: They need to work up to big trips. If you have a couch mutt, start with short hikes before doing a long overnight.
