Happy Dog Forest Hike in Bratislava
Are you a dog lover? Want to enjoy the beauty of Bratislava City Forests while doing a good deed? Discover a recreational area in the Small Carpathians with me and a dog of your choice from the "Sloboda zvierat" (Liberty of animals) shelter.
Normal guy trying to enjoy life. I was living with a younger boyfriend/partner with whom I was happy and our family supported us, until in December 2016 he passed away of lymphoma. I am running my own eshop with flower bulbs, ornamental and fruit shrubs and trees, perenials, grasses as well as an unusual hostel in our greenhouse. In my free time I am working as a tourist guide presenting several tours. My other leisure activities are hiking, riding a bicycle, swimming, walking with dog or meeting and talking to foreign people. In 2013, I started an association called "Vypestuj Dobro" (= Grow Good), which tries to encourage people to share their surplus of garden produce with the families with children in need. I really enjoy working on it.Read more

My only small criticism is that the Pound chooses the dogs that need walking, so you don't really choose the dog you want. We walked some really strong dogs who were challenging to start with but did settle down.
The forest scenery was lovely (we went in autumn) and it was so lovely to see families and groups of teenagers giving up their time to walk and socialise these dogs.
I would recommend it.
Thanks so much Erich!
After getting accross the busy highway roads. Is a nice relaxing 3 hour walk with the dogs through the park/forest. Dogs are on the lead the whole time. We visisted parks, lakes, a cafe where Erich bought us cold drinks and a choclate wafer treat. Passed a refurbished water mill and an old ammuniction bunker from the war.
Erich has alot of knowledge of the history of slovenia and surrounding countries. If you want a break from the normal city escape and love dogs then this is a nice little change of pace
It felt good to see many people trying to help the shelter dogs.
Thank you for this opprtunity.

If you love dogs and nature you should definatly go!
You could see the dogs were well looked after at the shelter despite awaiting their forever homes. The staff at the shelter make sure that you take out dogs who haven’t had a walk that day.
This was a great tour I would recommend to anyone visiting Bratislava.
and the dogs are super cute and happy that someone took them walk for almost 3 hours !
Definitely one of the highlights in my trip !
Erich was also a very interesting guy and it was nice to hear some of his stories. He also helped us out with getting to the airport after the hike, he took us to the best bus stop and advised us on change overs.
Overall I had a wonderful time and would 100% book again.
