By taking long walks regularly with our dogs and in the company of other people with their pets, they can enjoy the physical and mental exercise that is very difficult to achieve in a city as cosmopolitan as Barcelona.

If we take our dogs for walks on routes that are designed for them to enjoy without strong levels of difficulty, then we will be giving them more life time, physical and mental health, so in short, they can be healthier and happier pets .


What you must keep in mind
– Duration and physical condition of the animal: Before making any hiking route with your dog, it is necessary to take into account the physical condition of your pet, as well as the duration of the route and the route of the same.

– Plan the route beforehand: It is very important to properly plan each route and know which roads are going to be taken to avoid getting lost or that we are trapped by the weather conditions that occur while you make the route. It is important that you are prepared in case there is a chance of rain.

– Terrain conditions: Before choosing any route, find out about the current conditions of the terrain, for example if it is too steep the dog will not be able to do it, however there are also some rubber boots specially designed for the canines that besides protecting their paws they protect them in case they fall, because those boots are able to adhere to the ground and prevent a slip because of water, ice or stones.

– Bring water: Do not forget to bring a good amount of water for both you and the animal, so prevent dehydration during the journey, you can also make sure that the route has drinking water points, you can not forget to bring some food in case it is a long route.
