Melinda is the best! We had the good fortunate to be introduced to her a year ago. I trust her with our dog and would recommend her without hesitation.

We have a high energy dog, and she is so patient with him. He goes on hikes most days with her, and has stayed with her many times for overnights while we are gone for a weekend of on vacation. We feel at ease when he is in her care, knowing how much she loves animals and how caring she is..

I met Melinda by chance as she walks a neighbours dog, my rescue pup LOVED Melinda from the word go - dogs just know good people. I decided to send her on walks with Melinda for socialisation purposes and to get her used to doing a variety of things with other people, not just me. She had so much fun! Melinda sends updates and pics/videos so you know they're ok the first time out. My dog came back tired and happy. Highly recommend!

Melinda is the best thing that ever happened to my dog! She enhanced his life with adventure and socialization. I've had the pleasure to watch her in action. I was impressed with her knowledge, professionalism, and love for dogs!


I always felt relaxed that my dog was in such capable hands! She's not only caring, but she is talented with dogs! I completely trust her and highly recommend her!!! When you want peace of mind that your dog will not only be safe, but loved...use Melinda!!! I give her an A+

Melinda was so great with our dogs. We have Australian Shepherd's and they love their runs. My dogs have high energy but when they return, they're totally tired. She is professional, reliable and she's dedicated to taking care my dogs even when we go away, I am able to board with Melinda. I feel confident that they are in great care. Excellent service.

I've known Melinda for years and have been so glad to have her taking my two dogs hiking with her pup group! They both are excited each time she comes to pick them up and happily exhausted when they get home. Her fee is incredibly reasonable for all the care and exercising they get. Highly recommend her and all the services she can provide!

I have an older border collie mix I take EVERYWHERE with me, and when I had to do a huge art show in Los Angeles, I couldn't take my dog with me to the show, so I hired Happy Dog Hiking to take care of my beloved pup while I was busy working....I was SO completely impressed with how Melinda interacts with all the dogs in her care....they are all treated with love and attention, as if every dog is her Max integrated beautifully, and at the time, she had over 7 other dogs staying over, going for hikes every day....Max was in HEAVEN....many days, she has over 20+ dogs all hiking off leash with her, and she is able to manage to keep them all together as they play and hike to their hearts content.....I highly recommend Melinda to everyone, and have sent Max to her many times since....and when I have to travel to LA again, my Max will be coming with me and spending more time with Melinda....

How it all started...

Dog Hiking, walking & boarding in Los Angeles

In 2003 I was living in an apartment and decided that I wanted a Great Dane. When he was a puppy, he had a giant mouth and a ton of energy. I quickly learned that I needed to exercise him to avoid the apartment from being chewed to the ground. Gratefully the Santa Monica Mountains were in my backyard. People quickly became familiar with my giant blue Great Dane, Sampson, and asked if I could include their dog on the hike...
