|We just got back from hiking Mt. Yamnuska, near Canmore, Canada. Lupi was such a trooper! Everyone was surprised to see a Doxie coming up the mountain. There were a couple spots we had to put her in the backpack. Once on the narrow ridge with the chain to hold onto and also down the scree. The hike was way harder than I had realized (took us 5 hours!) but Lupi never complained. She is dead to the world now though!
Regarding leashes, I started out keeping her leashed but every dog we met on the way up was off-leash so I took hers off too. It really wasn't safe to keep her leashed with the steep terrain and rocks. Once we passed the part with the chain there were no other dogs (or people!) so it really wasn't necessary to leash her anyway.
