my name is nathalie mosbach. in 2007 i founded "the dog hikers". it was the very first dog hiking service of its kind in the sf south bay. 
running a top notch doggie fitness service doesn't only come with experience. it comes with training in dog handling and behavior especially when working with multiple dogs. safety is my top priority. a fun filled k9 outdoor adventure we promise you every single day. your dog will come home dog tired. that is my guarantee! for your daily dose of hiking pictures visit our facebook page.
happy hiking!
