Working out with Rosy
Dogs, just like humans, require conditioning before tackling the trails. Altitude, temperature and weather conditions affect them too. One expert shares a routine she follows for taking her dog to the Sierra.
It's several weeks before Wynne Benti plans to take her dog, Rosy, to the top of White Mountain Peak, a 14,246-foot summit in the Eastern Sierra and the third tallest peak in California.
But Benti, the author of "Favorite Dog Hikes in and Around Los Angeles," knows that her 2-year-old Australian cattle dog will need as much training as she does to make the summit. . .
. . . In Benti's book she offers more tips on hiking with dogs:
Create a "hands-free" leash using a carabiner, the U-shaped clip used by climbers, to affix the leash to your waist or pack.
Be aware that dogs can suffer from heat exhaustion (vomiting, stumbling gait, overall exhaustion) and hypothermia (uncontrollable shivering, weakness, difficulty moving) just like humans.
Be prepared to carry your dog out if it gets injured or becomes too tired to walk.
