Local

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.

Description

It has already been three 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 with my partner to a 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 barbeques, paddle small boats on lakes in summer and even ski in winter?

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

A great experience!
We really enjoyed the dog walking tour. Erich was a brilliant guide - he was very friendly and had lots of local knowledge of the area and of Slovakia in general which was very interesting. The dogs were lovely and quite energetic, and it was great to be able to help the animal shelter, which we got to look around after the tour. It was nice to be able to take a break from the city and walk around the forest, and we had a nice break with a drink and snack. Overall, a brilliant tour!
Arewarding stroll in the woods

It felt good to see many people trying to help the shelter dogs.

Highlight of our holiday. Couldn't recommend highly enough.
Whether you're a dog lover, a trekking enthusiast, or just want to get a good local knowledge of Bratislava, Erich and his Dog walk tick all the boxes. From the very start we felt extremely welcome as Erich was incredibly friendly and very approachable. The trek itself was picturesque and the dogs were very happy and eager to get going and were delighted to be around us with no resistance to us walking them. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Bratislava and we will definitely be back in the future.
Fantastic experience
Went dog walking with my friend and Erich in a beautiful forest. The total experience was very peaceful and enjoyable, Erich and the dogs were good company and I would definitely recommend it to everyone :)
Sustainable tourism at its best.
See the beautiful green side of Bratislava, help a local charity shelter, and make a new little friend while you're at it. Nothings better than seeing happy dogs, so me and my partner jumped at this opportunity. Even though we were off season, the forests were calming and serene, and Erich was helpful and flexible for our arrival while also being friendly and knowledgeable during the walk. Would strongly recommend for anyone who is remotely active or likes animals.
