Hike with your Dog in 2010 - Find out Where

Taking your dog on a hike can be one of the most rewarding times you and your dog spend together. The relatively mild winter weather we experience in Austin can make it the best time of year to roam with your pup. However, it can be difficult to figure out where your four-legged friend is welcome and what rules you must play by to have him with you. Just where can you go to enjoy a long relaxing walk together?

Well, come with me to REI's North location next Tuesday, January 12th at 7pm and find out. Melissa Gaskill author of Best Hikes with Dogs: Texas Hill Country & Coast, will give a talk on the best hikes in the central Texas area including, Austin, San Antonio and Houston. Not only will she map out some of the best hiking spots for you and your canine buddy, she will also tell us how to prepare our dogs, what to pack and discuss overnight adventures with our furry friends.

Ms. Gaskill has spent lots of time hiking and camping around central Texas and has written several magazine articles about her adventures. She has also co-authored a book on lacrosse and authored a long-running parenting column. Best of all, she owns two dogs. One is a rescue dog named Max, a mixed breed rescued from an Austin shelter AND the other, a black Lab named Keeper. You know these guys are living the good life. Come find out more about how to give more of the good life to your special friend.
