Join REI staff to learn about the basics of hiking with dogs. This class will help you plan a successful hike for you and your canine companion. The REI staff will review where to go, what to bring for you and your pup, and what you may encounter on the trail. We’ll talk about where to find dog-friendly parks – local, state-wide and nationally. Having the right equipment is critical, so the REI staff will discuss gear, as well as safety and comfort items you’ll need to bring along to make a safe, enjoyable hike for both you and your dog. Learn how to travel on trails with your dog in a way that makes the least impact on the natural area, including wildlife. Attendees are encouraged to bring all of their hiking with dogs questions, but unfortunately due to classroom constraints, we ask that you do not bring your non-service animals.
