Conor joined Hiking Hounds in 2017, Conor brought to the pack much experience as a responsible and avid trail user. He is certified in Leave No Trace, and as a Wilderness First Responder. Because of his passion for trail running, he piloted our afternoon running program, and the high cardio dogs love it!
Conor has a great sense of our dog's dispositions and aptly treats each dog according to their individual needs. Conor has a great sense of order on and off the trail, he maintains excellent trail etiquette and obedience within the pack.
Occasionally you will see Conor's assistant, Emmet on Instagram - at three years old, this little guy is all enthusiasm for the fours leggeds - Emmet is learning strong leadership skill at an early age!
Hiking with the pack since September 2015, Jenny brings great energy and humor to her groups!
Whoever said 'diamonds are a girls best friend', clearly never owned a dog. This definitely holds true in my life. My dog Dillinger gives me so much joy, I can hardly stand to be away from him. Now I get to combine two of my favorite things (hiking & dogs), into a job that I love. I look forward to getting to know your fur-children and working with them to create a well behaved pack with excellent trail etiquette and social skills.
Olivia has been working with Hiking Hiking since February 2016. She has quickly adapted and taken charge. Her understanding of animal behavior has been instrumental!
Olivia has an intense passion for everything outdoors and alive. She studied environmental science and has had many opportunities to work with wildlife. A highlight of her work experience includes training marine mammals at the National Aquarium and The Aquarium of the Pacific. She has thoroughly enjoyed getting to know each dog at Hiking Hounds and looks forward to spending more time with them outside!
Hiking with the pack since August 2014, Nick likes to vary his hikes - he will either cruise up a trail close by, but if his day allows he prefers exploring trails from Park City to the West Desert.
I knew that working with dogs, and in the outdoors could be a good fit. I can truly say working with the Hiking Hounds pack has changed my life. I love being on trail, I love working with the dogs, I love reactions from other hikers when our dogs are at their best. I'm happy to know all of you and, of course, your fur babies. We all treat them as if they were our own, and when we don't see them for a while we miss them!
