During our hikes, we focus on positive reinforcement and consistent training to teach your dog good trail manners and basic commands.
trail hike $25/dog
Our trail hikes are at least half an hour long and cover about 2 miles, providing ample opportunity for quality tree sniffing, boulder hopping, and space to reflect on the day. Added on to daycare or boarding services to add some extra enrichment.
Adventure Hike $35/dog
Add on an adventure to your dogs daycare or boarding stay. Our Adventure Hikes are renowned for their challenging routes. These hikes span 3-5 miles across some of the most scenic trails in the East Bay. We suggest that only large breeds join us as we maintain a brisk pace to exhaust our high-energy dogs.

Workindoggz strives to create a positive experience for our campers and their families. We are proud to treat our pack like family. For this reason we have a screening process for our hiking services to ensure we're the best fit for your pet. After submitting an inquiry request, if your pup seems like good fit we will reach out to schedule a meet and greet. The process can take an estimated 1-3 weeks.
It's important to us that your furry camper is comfortable, safe and healthy through our hike. For hiking we require a few things:
Up to date vaccines including DHPP, Rabies, and Bordetella. Influenza is highly recommended along with current flea, tick and heart worm medication.
A meet and greet at daycare is required for fixed dogs and intact dogs under 8 months old. Free meet and greets are by appointment only.
All hiking dogs are taken out with provided secure collars and leashes. If your pup requires a different method for health reasons, please contact us to discuss options.
For more questions, please reach out and we would be happy to answer any questions or concerns!
