” Join Nancy Tanner, for a day of training and discussion, to prepare you and your dog for back country hiking and wilderness first aid …

Ready, Set, HIKE! is celebrating its 4 Year Anniversary in the back country, so we wanted to share our information in a full day workshop. A great opportunity for the beginning thru avid hiker, as well as trainers, City Planners, looking to add a new program to their curriculum! This program doesn’t teach people how to hike, we assume if you know how to walk, then hiking will be a breeze! RSH prepares dogs and their owners to use trails responsibly while enjoying the back country.”

Topics:

  •  Self-control in the car is where the hike begins
  • Trail etiquette – multi use trails, what are you responsible for?
