Hi, I'm Liz, Owner and Guide for Trail Dog & Company. I started the company in 2022 after leaving the corporate rat race and hitting the Appalachian trail for some life-changing hikes.  I've been hooked ever since! I want to share those amazing experiences with you in a safe and supportive environment.  I am a Wisconsinite, and grew up hiking, boating, and recreating on the beautiful shores of Lake Michigan. By choosing to hike with Trail Dog & Company, you can feel safe knowing I am a certified Wilderness First Responder, a Leave No Trace Trainer, and I am trained in Mental Health First Aid. I look forward to helping you become a confident and educated hiker.  In addition to my love of hiking, I have an affinity for animals and can be seen volunteering at the Humane Society as a dog walker when I'm not guiding.  

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!
