Hello! My name is Marc Appel, founder and owner of K9 Hiking. Over the past seven years I have dedicated my life to working with dogs and making sure that they get the attention, exercise and training that they need. Having owned my own daycare and boarding facility, my biggest lesson learned is that dogs are the happiest when they feel free. That is why I started K9 Hiking. The dogs I work with love the great outdoors- from hiking, to swimming, to relaxing under the sun, each dog gets the freedom they deserve while under close watch by me. The core of my services rely on building trust and loyalty with my clients and their dogs.
