Hiking with Dogs

General Guidelines and Tips:

  • Dogs are required to be on a leash at all times.
  • Yield the right of way when hiking with your dogs- not all hikers are comfortable around dogs.
  • Hiking is hard work for a dog. Watch your dog for signs of stress and fatigue, and give it plenty water and rest.
  • Never leave pets unattended inside vehicles, especially during summer.

The Green Mountain Club has made a four part series on Hiking with Dogs:
