I know the saying is HYOH but when Im with my dog I hike my dogs hike. Me and Cranky Bear had to get off the trail one time cause my dog over heated it was just to hot for her to be out. So imho its totally doable with a dog but may present some challenges.
Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.
Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.
