When I saw this photo, I thought to myself - now that’s a photo of my silly Wixom! She carried this stick with her for a little under a mile - dragging it along, trotting with it held high overhead, and constantly dropping it at our feet hoping we would throw it - tail wagging and paws prancing the whole time!⠀ Dogs can be so inspirational. Wixom reminds me every day to find the joy and the fun, even when it might not be obvious at first!⠀ ⠀ Hiking harness: @outwardhound ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #winterhike #adventuredogs #adventureisoutthere #snowventure #hikingdogsofinstagram #hikingdog #outdoorswithdogs #hikingdogsofinsta #livewildandfree #roamfree #adventuredognation #goodtimesoutside #pawsthatwander #livelifeoffleash #campingwithdogs #hikingwithdogs #thegreatoutdoors #adoptadventurerepeat #exploringwithdogs #dogsthatexplore #stayandwander #lifewildbefree #outdoorpups #dogventurist #dogsofinstagram #rescuedog #muttsofinstagram #dogfriendlysocal #hikesandiego #wildernessculture

Day 4 of this LA rain has got us wanting to curl up and go back to sleep 😴 Our friend @astroandlily is snoozing away on this comfy looking couch at @weegohome. How awesome that you can bring your pooch with to test out which sofa is best for cuddling?! . . . 📸 creds: @astroandlily . . . #pitbull #pitbullsofinstagram #pitbull_love #cutie #sleep #tired #snooze #cozy #warm #furniture #furnituredesign #furniturestore #losangeles #dogfriendly #dogfriendlyla #dogfriendlysocal #paws #rainydays #stayinside #cozyup #rescuedog #adoptdontshop #sofa #dogsoncouches #dogsoflosangeles #dogsofla #dogswelcome #socal #woofswelcome
These pups are the cutest! Meet Gnome and her three boys Ember, Colt and Otter! They love to hike and camp. In the photo they’re hiking at the beautiful Santa Ysabel preserve where you can find 15 miles of trails through both the east and west preserves including two loops. Have you hiked any of the trails in the preserve? Our Meetup group has two hikes planned right now - one on the east side and one on the west. Interested in joining us, sign up via the link in our profile! Spots still available! 📷 @gnome_and_the_boys #santaysabelpreserve #santaysabel #julian #visitjulian #dogfriendlysocal #hikewithdogs #traildogs #dogfriendlyca #dogsontrails #bestdoghikes #bestdoghikesca #hikingwithdogs #thegreatoutdogs #dogsthathike #hikingdogsofinstagram #dogfriendly #socal #hikesandiego
Exploring the state with Dallas isn't always easy. He doesn't always listen to me, I have to carry 3x the amount of water I normally do, last week he pulled me so hard I fell on my knee in front of three guys... 🤦🏽‍♀️ But I love this goof and he warms my toes so I guess I'll keep him around. - #campingwithdogs #hikingwithdogs #hikingdogsofinstagram #dogsthathike #adventuredog #dogfriendlysocal #keepnaturewild #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #sheexplores #mtnchickssocal #socaltravels #52hikechallenge2019 #gloriousgoldens #brownpeoplecamping #diversifyoutdoors #diversifyyourfeed #diversityinadventure #desertdweller #livelifeoffleash #mydogismy #ruffwear #visitcalifornia
Our Meetup crew took on a challenging hike yesterday and climbed up to an amazing viewpoint in Mount Gower Open Space Preserve! The 8 mile RT trail following the southern end of the preserve is like a roller coaster with ups and downs both ways. We spotted a couple fun rock formations to include “teepee rock” and the “fangs.” The views are great and on a clear day you’re likely to see Iron Mountain, Mt. Woodson, Cuyamaca Peak, and El Cajon Mountain. To reach the actual Mount Gower summit at 3,103 ft requires a bit more navigation since the trail is unmarked and it actually lies just outside the preserve on Cleveland National Forest. Another adventure for a future day! 📷 Meetup crew where everyone is smiling even though @cappiethevizsla is standing right in front of sweet @shadowtheshepkita plus @whippetkirby @misterbo619 @elane1014 #mountgower #mountgoweropenspacepreserve #viewsfordays #ramona #dogfriendlysocal #hikewithdogs #traildogs #dogfriendlyca #dogsontrails #bestdoghikes #bestdoghikesca #hikingwithdogs #thegreatoutdogs #dogsthathike #hikingdogsofinstagram #dogfriendly #socal #hikesandiego #hikesd #sandiegocounty
This is one of my favorite happy places. Where’s yours? #happyplace #happydog #rescuedog #sangabrielmountains #dogsofsocal #dogfriendlysocal #instadog
Happy Saturday! Today we're giving a shout out to our furry kitty friends who also love to hike! Don't we all wish we could scale rocks like Maui! She’s at one of our favorite spots to catch a waterfall, Kitchen Creek. I’m hoping with all this rain, we’re going to see it flowing soon. There are two ways to reach the falls: start near Boulder Oaks Campground for 4.7 miles RT or from Kitchen Creek Rd for 3.6 miles RT. Whichever way you choose, you will enjoy this hike on the PCT. In April, you may even meet PCTers starting their journey! 📷 @maui_demicat #catswhohike #furryfriends #adventurecat #kitchencreek #clevelandnationalforest #pct #dogfriendlysocal #hikewithcats #trailcats #dogandcatfriendlyca #dogandcatfriendly #catsontrails #bestcathikes #bestcathikesca #hikingwithcats #thegreatoutcats #hikingcatsofinstagram #socal #hikesandiego #hikesd
Where is your favorite spot to watch the sunset? Miki found a great one at the top of Mother Miguel Mountain! This 4.5 mile RT hike (via the Rock House trail starting in Chula Vista) gives you views of South Bay, the Sweetwater Reservoir and the Pacific Ocean. The Rock House (a large man made pile of rocks complete with flagpole) also awaits you at the top! Don't forget to pack a headlamp or flash light for your sunset hikes. 📷 @miki_doberman #mothermiguelmountain #rockhousetrail #chulavista #sunsethike #dogfriendlysocal #hikewithdogs #traildogs #dogfriendlyca #dogsontrails #bestdoghikes #bestdoghikesca #hikingwithdogs #thegreatoutdogs #dogsthathike #hikingdogsofinstagram #dogfriendly #socal #hikesandiego #hikesd
With more rain in our forecast over the next week, what are you hoping to do? Will you chase down a waterfall or find snow? Let us know what you plan to do and tag us in your photos to share with others! Also please remember to check road conditions and park alerts before you venture out. Sometimes the rain brings park closures or you might need chains for snow. We'll keep you posted on what we find too! We’re loving this snowy photo from @marleyandlevi ! Makes you want to build a snowman with your pup! ☃️ #mountlaguna #clevelandnationalforest #snowinsandiego #dogfriendlysocal #hikewithdogs #traildogs #dogfriendlyca #dogsontrails #bestdoghikes #bestdoghikesca #hikingwithdogs #thegreatoutdogs #dogsthathike #hikingdogsofinstagram #dogfriendly #socal #hikeinsandiego #hikesd

You never know what you might find on a trail - a mountain biker, a horse, other hikers, cows or even a blue whale. 🐳 If you’ve driven out to Palm Springs, you may have seen the big “M” on the hills above Moreno Valley. There is actually a trail that leads to the M. It’s a ~3.6 mile RT hike that climbs 1300 ft and offers views of San Gorgonio, San Bernardino, San Jacinto, Old Saddleback and the San Gabriels. And right now most of those mountains have snow on top! 📷 @foxnwlf #themtrail #morenovalley #inlandempire #boxspringsmountainpark #dogfriendlysocal #hikewithdogs #traildogs #dogfriendlyca #dogsontrails #bestdoghikes #bestdoghikesca #hikingwithdogs #thegreatoutdogs #dogsthathike #hikingdogsofinstagram #dogfriendly #socal
It’s 2019! ✨ I’m a little late but Happy NEW YEAR & also #tongueouttuesday 👅 I only hope for more fun in the sun. Where are you planning to adventure to in the new year?
There's a lot to explore at San Elijo Lagoon Ecological Reserve and a good chance you'll see some wildlife! It's one of the largest remaining wetlands in Southern California. There are a few trails with multiple places to start. I'd suggest starting at the trailhead on El Camino Real at the La Orilla trailhead. Immediately you're taken through a lush eucalyptus forest which opens up to a fresh water wetlands. If you're short on time or attempting to throw in a quick hike before it rains (more rain coming this weekend), then follow the trail to Tern Point for ~2 miles RT. For a longer hike, you can keep going and pass under I-5 to reach other trails and loops like Annie's Canyon Trail. But please note that pets are not recommended on the strenuous loop of Annie's Canyon Trail.

“Let us come alive in to the splendor around us, and see the beauty in ordinary things...,” that’s exactly what Apollo does for me every single day. We saw many people turn away once they approached the water, but not Apollo. Just a reminder to splash in the puddles, and have a few good laughs while doing it. . . . San Clemente Canyon in Marian Bear Natural Park- an option for up to six miles of trails, we wandered for four miles. Lots of fun stream crossing, and mud stomping because of the recent rain. A perfect little nature escape right outside the city! . . #trailsandtails #borntohike #womenwhohike #hikesandiego #getoutandexplore #hikingwithdogs #dogfriendlysocal #lifeisbetterwithadog
Just ran all the way up Mount Soledad. Time for a long nap!
Stick + sand +water = a very happy pup. I'm going to start occasionally posting before and after editing. I've still got a lot of learning and improving to do but I'm pleased with my progress. This one was particularly challenging for me, but I'm happy with how it turned out so I wanted to share. . . . #dogstagramdog #dailygoldens #unitedpupper #beachsunset #gloriousgoldens #goldensofinstagram #buzzfeedanimals #dogscorner #mydogiscutest #aestheticdoglife #bestwoof10k #livewildbefree #goldensofpetstagram #dogsofinstaworld #beachpup #goldenpupsquadfeature #topdogphoto #dailywoof #pupfluencer #tagthesnout #dogsloveadventure #dogsearth #borntobeawaterdog #dogfriendlysocal #mypatch #socalpup #socalliving #beachlife
“In life it’s not where you go, but who you travel with...” and I’ll continue to choose dogs. . . . Today we explored Knott Grove- just a little over four miles from the Canyonside Community Park. Well shaded path, with lots of running water and cute little foot bridges. Perfect for the pups! . . . #hikesandiego #dogfriendlysocal #trailsandtails #dogsofinstagram #hikewithdogs #exploresandiego #pitsofinstagram #mybestfriend

What hike are you looking forward to most this year? Maybe it’s a new hike or a repeat of one of your favorites.

Happy New Year from a snowy hike in Julian! We arrived around 9am and had a snowy trail up to the summit! There’s about a couple inches of nice powder so all we needed were warm clothes, Cappie’s booties, and my Yaktrax! I also took one hiking pole and actually used a snow basket on the bottom. Finally got use out of those snow baskets! Haha! Julian is jumping and as we left, a line of cars down into Wynola were stacked up. So if you head out that way, go early or expect delays. Also some of the local roads (especially up to Volcan Mountain) still have a thin layer of snow and ice. Be careful, drive safe and enjoy! 📷 @cappiethevizsla #volcanmountainwildernesspreserve #volcanmountain #julian #dogfriendlysocal #hikewithdogs #traildogs #dogfriendlyca #dogsontrails #bestdoghikes #bestdoghikesca #hikingwithdogs #thegreatoutdogs #dogsthathike #hikingdogsofinstagram #dogfriendly #socal #hikesandiego #hikeSD #visitjulian

We got to meet this guy yesterday @max_the_blue. His owners said he prefers to be naked, but he didn’t seem to mind modeling our plaid bandana. Happy New Years Eve!

I had so much fun playing in the snow today! Who knew it would snow in San Diego? 💁🏼‍♀️❄️⛄️
Making it to the top is a great feeling! 👅
Climbed up so many stairs for many miles, and my legs are like jello! But this was pretty cool.🐾
Mavisaviche loves those hikes #whiteboxer #mavis #calavera #dogfriendlysocal
Who wants to do outdoor adventures with me?!
Just trying to look the part🤵🏻
Full of joy🤗
Wet sand between my toes 😯
This trail felt like many many miles for my short legs!
Many more hikes to come this year as these little legs get stronger!
Guys!! I finished my first hike today! My legs were shaky since all the steps were over my head, but I did it!
