Stay on the marked trail when hiking with your dog

In county parks, you must make sure your dog is kept on a leash no longer than 6 feet in length at all times. A leash prevents your dog from getting lost and prevents them from having an unexpected encounter with dangerous, sick or wounded animal.



Make sure you’re the one in control of your dog at all times

Dogs that go out of control or compose a demonstrated risk to others (esp. when you go hiking in a park) maybe asked to leave by a park ranger so as to ensure the safety of other persons in the park.


Hiking with your dog is a great way to get some exercise and enjoy a change of pace, it also provides your dog a chance to be exposed to its environs.

If you observe and apply the tips and guidelines, you’ll surely enjoy your hike and some quality bonding time with your pet.
