Being outdoors makes dogs healthier and happier

At Riverdog Adventures we believe that dogs need to spend a sufficient amount of time outdoors for their physical and emotional well-being. Dogs that spend too much time indoors will often have stomach issues because they haven’t developed the proper balance of internal microbes that a healthy intestinal structure requires. And spending too much time indoors can also affect dogs emotionally which will often lead to behavioural problems. Going outside keeps dogs healthy and happy – they need to sniff, run, jump, chase and swim. Being outdoors keeps dogs physically, mentally, and emotionally fit.

Les & Leo

I’m Lesley and I have over thirty years of experience caring for dogs. I love taking dogs on hikes in nature where they can exercise while living their best lives. I am licensed, insured and certified in Dog Safe First Aid. Leo was eight months old when I adopted him in 2018. He loves spending time on the Coquitlam River and is a gold star swimmer. We look forward to having your best friend join us on our next Riverdog Adventure!
