About Happy Walkers
My name is Tommy, and I was born and raised in Truckee. I've been hiking these mountains since I was a boy, with my golden retriever "Jones" who passed away years ago. They are some of my happiest memories and now I get to spend my days reliving those good times, keeping Jones' memory alive. I have always had an affinity for dogs, as my family and I have had many pets to love and care for.
I grew up racing on the ski team; I'm an avid rock climber and mountain biker, and being in the mountains is home to me. I was gifted with an incredible sense of direction, and mixed with a sense of local familiarity, I feel the freedom to roam the expanse of wilderness that Tahoe has to offer.
Although I am not a dog trainer, Its important to me to teach the dogs to be obedient and responsive. I use treat reinforcement as well as pack mentality to encourage dogs who are new to being off-leash to stay with the pack.
We have an amazing time EVERYDAY, and the dogs LOVE and look forward to their well deserved mountain play time!
Dogs who play with us, go home more confident, socialized, responsive, well-adjusted and happy, and worn out! I can't wait to help your dog live its BEST LIFE EVER!!
