Since Maggie got her shots about a month ago, we’ve taken her on lots of walks around the neighborhood and on other walks in the area. We had yet to take her on a hike though. So, while Maggie was at doggy daycare this past week David and I went and scoped out a few hiking spots in the area, looking for short hikes for Maggie. We found one at a nearby hiking area: a 1.4 mile loop with minimal elevation gain. So, yesterday we took her on her first hike there (at Paradise Valley Conservation Area). She did great! It was kind of hard to keep her to the side of the narrow trail when bikers came our way, but overall, everything went just fine and we were able to social distance pretty well.
Here’s a picture of her on her first hike:
