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.
That's only $1 per issue!
What it is: Outdoor adventures, including swimming, hiking, and off-leash dog parks
Price: Starts at $35
This innovative service has been delighting Denver dogs for over 15 years with its jam-packed adventures. The Ultimate Adventure (rates start at $35) boasts two hours of group hiking, swimming and river wading, and designated playtime with balls, frisbees, and other toys. The All-Day Getaway (rates start at $70), meanwhile, lasts 2-3 hours longer—tiring out even the most energetic of canines. It includes everything in the Ultimate Adventure, with bonus time for whatever activity your dog still wants more of.
What it is: Customizable outdoor adventures across the Front Range
Price: Prices vary depending on services
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.
What it is: Multi-hour off-leash hike
Price: Starts at $67
In addition to overnight care, this Denver-based service will whisk active dogs away for an eventful three to four-hour off-leash hike. The service includes pick-up and drop-off from your home, and lots of optional locales to choose from, including the Red Rocks and Platte River Greenway hiking trails. Your dog’s appointed hiker will be equipped with water, treats, and any necessary medication. If that’s not enough to bring you peace of mind, you’ll also be sent real-time pictures of your precious pup exploring Colorado’s majestic outdoors unfettered.
