Toby and I hiked with the boys this past weekend, just over 10k, so not far, but it was hot - 32 before humidity - so there was a lot of time spent visiting creeks (our about-to-turn one year old puppy Agis lay down in one!). We splashed them down, let them drink, let them wade, gave them water away from creeks too.

It was lots of fun, Xerxes got to get his bay on. He was a good boy with the other dogs we ran into. Neb is always a good boy but had fun going off-leash (he's not pure beagle, and elderly - though at 12 years, we got asked if he was a puppy!).

Do you worry about the dogs eating wild mushrooms? There was an article in my newspaper abour a dog who has liver failure due to eating mushrooms on a walk.

I haven't - they don't seem to be interested. But that's a good point to watch out for.

How lucky the dogs are with the owner! They're having fun there! Tell me, how long did you go with them, what was the maximum kilometers? I also want to go and wonder how long the dog won't get tired

Thanks! The furthest they've hiked is 25k-ish - they could go further, it's just a time thing, and our puppy (now 17 months) was young so we didn't go far.

If you train them, they can hike very far. Our German Shepherd who passed away two years ago did a 60k non-stop hike.
