Good Manners on the Trail

By: DogTrekker Staff

You love your dog—heck, maybe you love all dogs, even the hundred-pounders who bowl you over in an attempt to give you an unsolicited kiss. But not all people you encounter on a leash-free hike will want to welcome, pet or even come near your four-legged family member.

Before unclipping, be 100 percent confident that you will be in control of your pet’s behavior at all times and that your furry friend will not cause problems for others. Bone up on trail etiquette here—and please follow it to help preserve leash-free access in the future.
