Enjoy the true outdoors with an easy 1.5 mile private nature hike hosted by a pack of loose, well trained German Shepherd Dogs. The hike starts at our farm in coastal Maine and wanders through a network of trails winding through a natural wild Maine forest along streams and through meadows. You will be hiking with a large pack of (5 to 12) loose german shepherd dogs of various ages and they will be wanting to engage you to play and have you throw sticks or pet them. Along the walk, there will be wooden bridges over streams, soft forest trails, sometimes mud puddles and slippery footing. You will also learn about different native plants ands wild birds. At the halfway point there will be beverages and a chance to sit down on logs or boulders to rest. Throughout our adventure you will learn tips on hiking with a pack and the way they communicate and what their body language means. Once we return there will be bathroom facilities, snacks and beverages. We will also talk about how we raise and imprint our young shepherds and prepare them as family companions or for Show. Your hosts for the nature walk will be either Jennifer, Tony, Katie or all. We began offering pack walks at our open house for our German Shepherd Breeding program, and because of the enthusiasm and popularity, we decided to host this event through Airbnb. *PRIVATE TOURS CAN BE SCHEDULED* Please inquire!
We have been raising German Shepherds for decades now here on our Maine coastal farm. Watching them grow up in a rural, natural setting has given us opportunity to decode a lot of their body language and nuance in their pack setting. It is fascinating to observe how the pack assigns the different positions to the individual dogs that establishes their pack position. We average caring for about 20 Shepherds most of the time, plus a few litters of puppies per year. We work very closely with our reproductive veterinarian to breed the very best German Shepherd a with solid temperament and healthy genetic make up. All of our German Shepherds are raised in our home, and go on forest hikes every day. They will be trustworthy, friendly, loyal, and will be happy to play with you while running free on the trail. *Private hikes can be scheduled.*

Seelenvoll German Shepherds is located on 68 private, natural acres with fields, forests and streams. The trails are groomed, with some wide, low, wooden bridges over rough terrain or streams. An absolute beautiful area to take photos and see or hear wild birds as we walk with the dogs. There may be mosquitos or flies depending on the time of year. *PRIVATE HIKES CAN BE ARRANGED* Please inquire

You will be walking in the forest with loose german shepherd dogs that are very people friendly. Sometimes they run past and can run into you, or jump up on your body in a very playful way. None of our companion shepherds bite or act aggressive towards people. You may get muddy, or slobbered on!
