About

Outdoor Paws is a New York City based dog adventure company. We offer full-day country escapes for city dogs including hiking, swimming, running and playing. We are dedicated to making your dog’s day out with us, the best day of their week.

A dog that gets plenty of exercise and fresh air is a happy dog. We give your dog the freedom to enjoy nature away from the concrete sidewalks and crowded dog runs of New York City. Your dog will enjoy a short car ride to one of our favorite hand-picked trails, with access to lakes, and spend the day being a dog. We provide clean drinking water and plenty of natural/organic treats.

Our founder, Anna Du, is a native New Yorker. She has been exploring the great outdoors with her dog, Poncho, for a decade. From the first hiking trip with Poncho, she knew that nothing compares to being outdoors with her furry companion. After 15 years in the corporate world, she decided that it was time for a change and to pursue her passions. Not only is Anna familiar with the best hiking trails, dog beaches and parks close to the city; she is also an ABC Certified Dog Trainer and certified in Pet First Aid by the American Red Cross. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband, daughter, and Poncho.
