Ruffin' It Dog Adventures is the best way to give your best pal more than a walk while you are working or away. Schedule them their own regular retreat in nature! New Orleans may not be known for its mountains but our tried-and-true local nature trails will give your pup a sense of off-road exploration.

Our Trailhead

As a born and raised West Coast gal, I grew up with my fair share of mountain treks and oceanside hikes, so when I dropped my pin onto urban New Orleans in 2020, I wondered how my adventure buddy Jack and I would fare. Turns out, just fine! In fact, I was surprised to find so many nature trails within Orleans Parish.

As one of the many who found themselves in shifting careers during the pandemic, I turned to my two major loves for guidance: dogs and nature.  And as it so happened, my brother and his fiancee were not only facing first time parenthood, they were also new parents of a fur-baby, Luna, who was still just a pup and needing lots of attention. My part-time help with Luna became a full-time love as I ventured out with her and my own dog, Jack, to as many local trails as we could find. This marked the start of "Adventure Sundays"...but I didn't want to keep the adventures all to myself.


 It is with true joy and great excitement that I now offer this service to my dog-loving NOLA neighbors! Ruffin' It Dog Adventures was born late summer 2021. Every dog deserves to have his day.
