What you'll do

It's hot in the desert so you will join me and my pack first thing in the morning. We will then head directly into the pristine Sonoran Desert of Arizona. Once we are away from civilization we will unload and commence hiking along established trails for approximately one hour. After our hike we will then travel to a nearby lake or river to swim for another hour. Once everybody is tired and wet we will load up and return to the city by lunchtime. It is up to you if you want to enter the water but you will get wet from lots of shaking furry dogs. This is a unique opportunity to visit beautiful desert terrain and enjoy the company of dogs. If we're lucky you may also see some wild horses and bald eagles.
Other things to note
Due to the established pack hierarchy and relationships this experience is offered only to humans. Unfortunately, you can't bring your dog. Available for one person only. No weekends.

  • Identity verified
I am a professional force-free canine trainer and handler. Each day I take a pack of well-mannered dogs into the pristine Arizona Desert for hiking, swimming and adventure. This provides a unique opportunity for the dogs to operate in their environment as nature intended, off leash and unbridled. I have operated my business for over 13 years. All my life I have had an affinity for dogs and at age 45 I left my corporate retail design career to follow my bliss - working with dogs. I have never been more contented and happy. Being in nature with dogs is better than therapy!

Where you'll be

The experience will start in Phoenix, Arizona. Due to the fragile and delicate nature of the pristine desert the actual locations are not publicized. This is the only way I can insure that the desert and it's inhabitants are safely maintained as nature intended.
