    8 Dog Friendly Hiking Trails in Denver

    Posted February 9, 2017 By in Dogs & Family With | No Comments

    With the warm weather we’ve been having lately, so many people are getting anxious for Spring and are ready to get their dogs out on the trails. I know everyone at Noble Beast Dog Training is.

    But where will you take them? 

    Here’s our list of 8 Dog Friendly Hiking Trails in Denver!

    Some tips for going out on the trail with your dog: 

    • Start off slowly: Just like you, your dog will need to get back into hiking shape. Start off with a shorter hike and work up to longer distances. 
    • Clean up after your pet: Take extra bags, and make sure to carry them with you. Don’t just drop them on the trail to pick up later. 
    • Take enough water: It’s better to carry too much than too little. Make sure to bring enough for YOU and FIDO! If carrying everyone’s water is too much for yourself to do, get a doggy back pack and have your dog carry some water too!
    • Follow the leash laws: Keep your dog on leash when in areas that require dogs to be on leash. Many people who are afraid of dogs or who have reactive dogs choose these trails for just that reason. 
    • Make sure to give other dogs space: Before allowing your dog to approach another dog, ask if it’s okay and if they owner says no, make sure to give them space. 
    • Have fun!
