New year, new dog walks: inspiration for you and your pup

Did you know that January is Walk Your Dog month? The vast majority of dog owners tend to walk their dog close to their home.  In 2020 with all the lockdown restrictions and advice to restrict unnecessary travel, we all tended to stay closer to home for our daily dog walks.  With the prospect of a lightening of restrictions ahead, thanks to vaccine rollouts, many of us will want to start going further afield later on in 2021.  Why not start planning for these new walks now?  We list 5 sources of inspiration for great walking opportunities around the US – maybe some of them would be suitable for you and your pup!

Travelnuity is a really helpful blog from Shandos Cleaver and her pup Schnitzel for those who travel globally with their dog.  Their list of 9 stunning hikes in the US may be ideal for you and your pup.

If you haven’t yet discovered it, a great resource is the website TrailLink, which gives suggestions for dog walks by state.

The American Hiking society gives details on hikes suitable for dog walkers in a variety of states and also suggests some great online resources. It’s definitely worth taking a look.

For those who’d like to explore national parks with their pup, Go Pet Friendly offers a very helpful resource for pet owners. 

And last, but by no means least Bring Fido details a range of hikes to take with your dog ranging from 1-hour walks to more lengthy overnight hikes.  Why not see if there is something in your area?
