Beautiful. We can't wait to start hiking with out little guy. He is not good on leash yet and most places around here require leashed dogs. He is getting there though!

How old is your pup? I've been slowly hiking her since she was very young, using a 15-20 foot training lead helps and also NOT using a harness (she pulls like a beast on her harness) start small, maybe one or 2 miles, if you don't start somewhere you will never get what you want

Be sure and take pics!! if he gets tired carry him, don't put any pressure on a pup, maybe go out for 20 minutes or so
