Treks & Walks

Lisa and Sandy hiking in Griffith Park.

Lisa takes the time to get to know and understand “her” dogs and their needs. Most importantly, she guarantees that her walks will last at least an hour. I know my dogs get a good workout and real exercise with Lisa! K9 Trekkers is an excellent service that meets my criteria. If you love your dog, you will love K9 Trekkers!
