Ideally best to go when there is snow on the ground, but Hilltown Wilderness team did there best to make it work with the snowless winter. Downside is that the meeting location was not exactly clear. Overall had a wonderful time and there was plenty of quality dog time!

It was something different and a great experience. You should be a dog lover if you do this because there is a lot of hand on. You will be put to work helping out with the dogs of you want to. It's an all day adventure and something I enjoyed trying.
