Description

Hiking with my dogs is a real pleasure! Join me for this beautiful 5-day tour in Valais.

Enjoy this alternative way to discover nature and the mountains, without ending up exhausted.

The activity consists of course of hiking in the company of a sled dog. During the tour, we guide the dogs talking and with precise gestures. The dogs have a harness a lanyard hooked to a large belt links them to the participants.

Children from 6 years old will be connected to the dog with a second person.

This activity is ideal for groups: schools and corporate groups are most welcome to join. The warmer months are ideal: I plan this trip from late May to late October.

A typical day would be the following. Starting with a morning hike with a dog, then a picnic for lunch. In the afternoon, we can be more in contact with the dogs: feeding, brushing and packing life. Finally, we return walking to end the trip.

Did you find this tour interesting? Then please contact me for more information!

It’s also possible to plan a shorter program if you want to hike with my dogs! Either a 1-day outing or just 2 days, sleeping in a mountain hut. Get in ouch with me so we can plan your ideal option!

About the guide

guide profile img

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!
