Lisa Densmore hiked more than 300 miles in New Hampshire and Vermont mostly with her faithful trail companion Bravo, a Chesapeake Bay retriever, but also with other dogs, while researching this book. Here she shares her favorite trails of easy day hikes to overnight backpacking trips, presented through caninecentric eyes. These hikes will delight both you and your pet with panoramic views, long ridge walks, lush forests, and pristine lakes. Advice is given on topics such as proper canine trail etiquette, wildlife encounters, and weather concerns. Additional features include what to pack for your pooch, including the Ten Canine Essentials, a doggy first aid kit, and a Trail Finder chart that lists hikes by length, terrain, difficulty for dogs, and more.
