Tour by Erich

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.

It has already been few years since my German Shepherd passed away and went to dog heaven. I used to walk him nearly every weekend in local recreational areas.

Along the way I often stopped at a small buffet for a special syrup-sweetened tea and a typical Slovak waffle bar or boiled sausage with mustard and bread. Sometimes it was possible to find mushrooms in the forest, too.

Nowadays when I want to spend some time in nature, I usually go to the shelter for unwanted dogs and help out by taking one or two of the dogs for a walk.

Would you like to share this experience with me and see where Bratislava locals go to jog, have barbecues, paddle small boats on lakes in summer and even ski in winter and get to know something about life in Bratislava or Slovakia?

I’d be very happy for you to join me :-)

Great Time!
The Happy Dog Forrest Walk is not something other countries offer (from what I could find) and it is quite rewarding too! You help the locals and have a great wat time learning about the country.we had a great time and this is definitely something I will do with other friends and family when I go back to Bratislava!
So neat!
We thoroughly enjoyed our dog hike. It’s great when you are traveling, missing your dog, and wanting to give back to a shelter.
The dogs were excited to be out in the woods and were fun to be with.
Erich was great. He was flexible to work with our schedule and delightful to be with.
I highly recommend this activity if you are a dog lover.
Awesome experience

One of the best tours we have ever done!
It was really a highlight during our stay in Bratislava! We enjoyed every second of this tour, something innovative and informative where one learns about the traditional food and beverages of Slovak people. Erich (the guide) was a great tour guide, sharing all his knowledge about the Slovaks and it shows that he loves doing this job. The price is very cheap compared to other food tours. Highly recommended!
A Fantastic day in the Forest
for Erich
This was a beautiful tour on a lovely sunny February day through a lovely park/forest area. Our 3 children were looking forward to this so much and were not disappointed, each spending the day with gorgeous friendly dogs. Erich informed us about the local area, some of the history and we all had a good chat about politics. This tour is highly recommended if you're looking for something 'off the beaten track'. Our children are still talking about THEIR dogs and it was without doubt, the highlight of our time in Slovakia.
