Description

Join me on this hiking tour with dogs in the beautiful Swiss canton of Valais!

Located in the heart of the Alps, Valais will be the perfect setting for our hiking tour. During this aventure, participants will explore its unique and diverse landscape. Its natural beauty will take your breath away!

Early in the morning, every day each participant will start hiking in the company of a sled dog and during the tour, hikers will guide their dogs by talking to them and by the precise gestures they will learn during this course.

During lunch, we will enjoy a delicious picnic and in the afternoon we will get more in contact with the dogs by feeding and brushing them. According to your wishes we may leave for either  1 to 5 days.

Throughout the journey, dogs will be equipped with a harness that will be attached to each hiker’s belt. Keep in mind that children from 6 years old may join us as they will be connected to the dog with a second person.

This trip is ideal for schools and corporate groups but also for families and friends who would like to share a great hiking experience.

A perfect way to discover nature without ending up exhausted, if you are interested in this hiking tour with dogs, request to book this trip and I will be happy to be your guide!

About the guide

Since I was born, in the 1980's, I have been surrounded by dogs and cats. In fact, I took my first steps hanging from the fur of the dog at home. During my childhood I always stayed close to animals: cats, dogs, horses. I am a certified equestrian excursion leader.
It was finally with dog sledding that I found a way to combine my passion for animals, sports and the mountain.
In 2010 I started offering dog sledding tours, close to Verbier in Valais. In 2013 I obtained my diploma as a Dog Training Instructor. This allowed me to give mandatory courses to new dog owners, but mostly to learn much more about dogs.
Since I am also a certified mountain leader, I can also offer hikes with dogs over several days.
I live surrounded by my dogs. It's my daily life and my job, but above all it's my passion and my reason to move forward!
