Dog Hikes in Boulder
Welcome to Timberline Canine: Adventure Hikes for Dogs, Boulder County’s premiere dog hiking service. My name is Sean Phillips. My wife, Jane and I have been working and exercising with dogs, professionally, since 1999, with a Colorado PACFA-Certified dog care business in our home, and we’ve been hiking all over Colorado with dogs for even longer.
I am a graduate of the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) and Jane is a graduate of the Women’s Wilderness Institute (WWI). All of our outdoor experience has left us well-versed in keeping people and dogs safe in wilderness situations.
After taking a break from our business and looking for something new, it only made sense to combine our love of dogs and our love of hiking and hit the trail, literally.
Boulder County is chock-full of great hiking trails for dogs, and is home to some of the best dog hikes in Colorado, full of rugged terrain, beautiful scenery and opportunities for exercise and socialization. That’s where we come in.

We’ll pick up your dogs in our safe, comfortable, secure and Colorado PACFA and U.S. Department of Agriculture-Certified Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, whisk them away to a local trail for some heavy-duty, long-distance hiking, and return them to you, exhausted and happy.
Whether it’s a high-altitude romp in the mountains, a long-distance stroll through the plains, or anything in between, you can rest assured that your dogs will get the exercise, fun and fresh air that they need on the best dog hikes in Colorado. Your dog will thank you.
All of our hikers are canine CPR and first aid-trained.

The Peace of Wild Things
By Wendell Berry
When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief.
I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light.
For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
