Our Team & Pack Leaders

Our staff is comprised of seasoned hikers and Pack Leaders who are trained in pack leadership and structure. By establishing themselves in the role of the alpha dog, each Alpine Canine doggy guest can relax and have fun playing with other dogs knowing that they can trust the pack leader to take care of any issues that may arise. This leads to calmer dogs, fewer fights and more respect. 

Participating with other dogs on a vigorous and multi-sensory hike stimulates the brain and gives dogs a physical workout that they would not get running around in circles or pacing bored and anxious as they wait for their owner in the backyard or sitting in a kennel.

Let our experienced team create a safe, pack-structured environment that your dog can enjoy time and time again!


Staff has been nothing but excellent for the 2+ years we've frequented Alpine Canine. You just can't beat the large, fenced property with a creek and daily hikes either – in fact that's a real draw for this place! Never used the puppy buses but, I've seen dogs get stupid excited when they see it pull up so you know the pups are enjoying themselves!

Thanks so much for being attentive to my 2 dogs’ needs and keeping them so happy! Your staff is always kind and professional. Both dogs are sleeping soundly!

I’ve used Alpine Canine for doggy daycare and boarding. My dog absolutely loves it. He comes back exhausted each time. Their staff clearly cares about each dog that goes there and they treat them like their own. Would recommend Alpine Canine to anyone and any dog.
