Hi, I'm Liz, Owner and Guide for Trail Dog & Company. I started the company after leaving the corporate rat race and hitting the Appalachian trail for some life-changing hikes.  I've been hooked ever since, and I want to share those amazing experiences with others.  I am a Wisconsinite and grew up boating and recreating on Lake Michigan. I am a Wilderness First Responder, a Leave No Trace Trainer, and I am trained in Mental Health First Aid. I have an affinity for animals and can be seen volunteering at the Wisconsin Humane Society as a dog walker when I'm not guiding.  I have two trail dogs and a husband who I love to road trip with.  When traveling, we will take on any adventure from cliff jumping, to whitewater rafting, to mountain biking.  We have a philosophy we follow on every trip: “We didn’t come this far to NOT do things!”

I look forward to guiding you soon!

What exactly is a Trail Dog?

We all know a Trail Dog when we see one.  They're strong, resilient, and loyal. They'll hike anywhere with you if you ask them. Trail Dog & Company is a nod to all those trail dogs (and people) who aren't afraid to blaze their own trail in life. My trail dogs, Tug and Rex, inspire me to get out there and live life in the moment everyday. 


Join us today for a thoughtful, authentic, and uniquely guided adventure!
