Never feel guilty for going to work again with these adventure-filled playdates for your four-legged companion.

Hike Doggie

What it is: Daytime hikes
Price: Starts at $75

The arrival of Hike Doggie’s roomy blue bus is sure to get your hound’s tail wagging. In between pick-up and drop-off from your home, a Hike Doggie Pro Hiker will take your pup on a tailored outdoor adventure. The three speed-levels (ranging from “Stroll-N-Sniff” to “Leg it Out!”) ensure that whether your dog is old, young, or anything in between, they’ll get the right amount of exercise—and have a good time while they’re doing it. Post-hike, your dog will be washed off and towel-dried to arrive home cuddle-ready.

Before your doggo embarks on their first jaunt with K9 Adventure Fitness, the service’s comprehensive Pet Profile form will ensure their selected companion is well-versed in his or her needs. Based on factors like whether your dog has encountered wildlife before, their handler will treat them to a custom two-hour trek; the outdoor locale, route, and activities will be planned directly around your pup.
