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.

Take a Closer Look


  • What time can I drop off and pick up?
    You are welcome to pick up or drop off your camper at anytime during our business hours from 6:30 am to 7:00 pm Monday thru Saturday. Sunday we are open from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm by reservation.
  • My dog has a health condition, is it still okay to bring them?
    We accept dogs with most non major health conditions.
  • Will you provide medication to my dog?
    Yes, with instructions regarding the medication we can administer it at no additional cost.
  • My dog doesn't like other dogs, can you still take them?
    Unfortunately, we can not accept boarding dogs that are not well acquainted with other dog. We do have some recommendations for other facilities that are able to provide one on one care!
  • My dog eats food that needs to be refrigerated, can you store it?
    Yes, we have overflow bulk freezers as well for any food that can not be stored in the fridge.
  • My dog is not spayed or neutered, can they still hike?
    We accept intact male and female dogs on our hikes. It's important to let us know so we can plan the route and transport space accordingly. Like all hiking pups, they will be in close proximity to other dogs. It's important that intact pups are able to maintain proper behavior around other dogs. We will not hike in season females.
  • Can you bring my dog to daycare?
    Yes! We can pick up for a hike then transport your dog to daycare for the day where you can pick them up in the evening. (similar availability for grooming and bathing)
  • What if I'm not home during the hike pick up?
    We can arrange pick up while you are not home or we are happy to reschedule to a different day.
  • How do I know if I am in your service area?
    We currently service Hayward, Castro Valley, San Lorenzo and parts of San Leandro.
  • How many dogs are on a hike?
    It depends! Every hike has 1-2 park rangers (hikers), and they each have between 3-5 dogs each. Numbers vary based on available transport space.
  • Will my dog be off leash?
    We have certain dogs that are cleared to be off leashed. We take off leash privileges very serious and have strict guidelines on how dogs can get there. Otherwise, ALL dogs are to be on leash.

Workindoggz strives to create a positive experience for our staff, campers, and their families. We are proud to treat our pack like family. For this reason we have a waitlist for our hiking services. As space opens up in our route, we reach out to welcome you to our pack for a meet and greet. There is currently no estimate on wait time for hiking. 

Hiking requirements

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.

  • For hiking services you must be located within our service area. We currently service Hayward, Castro Valley, San Lorenzo and parts of San Leandro. Please call to confirm your address is within our service area.

  • 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.
