hiking with dog travel blog roseanna sunley

If you’ve ever checked out my Instagram you would have noticed that I have a (very cute) spaniel named Winston.

He’s a rescue dog that I brought home almost 6 years ago when he was 14 months old, and without sounding cliche, he is my best friend and we’ve enjoyed lots of long walks and hikes together.

I can’t explain it, but hiking just seems to be much more enjoyable when you’ve got a dog happily plodding along with you.

Of course, when you take a dog hiking, there are other things that you have to consider, and I’ve detailed them for you in this post – 12 Things You Need to Consider Before Taking Your Dog Hiking

But for now, I just want to inspire you to make the most of your four-legged friends and explore the world together. And what better way to do that than by showing you a collection of my favorite pictures from my hikes with Winston 🙂

A small disclaimer before I get into the photos: I’m not (by any stretch of the imagination) a professional photographer, I simply point and shoot, so don’t expect anything too artistic!

I have so many more photos!

I have to admit that choosing just a handful of photos for this post was very hard; I have over 4000 photos of Winston on my laptop!! (other crazy dog moms will know the struggle).

But if you want to see more, Winston has his very own Instagram hashtag (yes, you read that correctly) and my housemate and I are always posting new photos. Just follow #LifeOfWinstonWiggles

I’d also love to see your photos of you adventuring with your dog. Just tag me on Instagram and I’ll be sure to see it (@RoseannaSunley)
