Why Choose Barking Trails?

Helps keep your Pup Healthy:

Regular long walks help keep your dog healthy, limber, and agile.

Helps with Weight Control:

An overweight pup is not a healthy pup. To keep your dog in tip-top shape, it’s important to provide them with regular exercise in addition to regulating their diet.

No more Unruliness:

Behaviors such as knocking over furniture or jumping on people can be a sign of pent up energy. Regular walks will help curb this, as well as help their on-leash behavior.

No more Destructive Behavior:

Regular walks, as well as other forms of exercise, can help reduce or eliminate any of your pups destructive chewing, digging, or scratching. Dogs are like children: If you are not giving them something constructive to do, you may not like how they choose to burn their energy.

No more Hyper Activity:

Walks can help to alleviate extra energy your pup may have, calming it down and reducing any hyperactivity, excitability, and even night-time activity. A walk can help your pup to feel more relaxed and sleepy rather than restless at bedtime.
