*This is a turtle hike, we will go slow and take as many breaks as needed. This will be a great hike for those just getting into hiking or those who hike at a slower pace.

**If you bring a dog, please bring enough water to keep him/her hydrated!

Your dog needs 1.5 -1.7 oz. of water per pound of body weight over the course of a 12-hour day. 
Math is hard and I hate it, but in this case, it’s absolutely worth it. I use 1.5 oz. of water per pound of body weight if the weather is under 70 degrees, and 1.7 oz. of water per pound of body weight if the weather is over 70 degrees.

The formula to use here is: [(weight of dog x 1.5 oz.) / 12 hours] x the hours you will be hiking.

Confused? Same. Here it is step by step with my dog’s stats:

6 lbs. x 1.5 oz. = 9 oz.
9 oz. / 12 = .75 oz. per hour
So, if I’m hiking for 4 hours in cooler weather, my dog will need 3 oz. of water.
