Hello! My name is Alya. I'm currently a student at the University of Southern California missing my two dogs from back home dearly! I got my first dog when I was in first grade and another when I was beginning seventh grade. They are both small (a Maltese and a Shih-Tzu), but I love dogs of all shapes, sizes and breeds! I am excited to be a Wag! Walker and I am so happy to be able to help you and your best furry friend. Thank you!

Dog Walking in Hilo

The vibrant town of Hilo is located on the northeastern side of “The Big Island”, Hawaii. This town overlooks Hilo Bay, and is located at the base of two volcanoes: Mauna Loa, and Mauna Kea. This lush area of Hawaii features thundering waterfalls, thick rainforests and blooming flowers. All of this natural beauty means many parks and trails to explore with your pup! This charming town is also known for its open air farmers market which welcomes leashed dogs, and offers anything from locally grown coffee and exotic fruits, to handmade jewelry.

For a great place to hike and watch a sunset with your best pal, check out the Upper Waiakea Forest Reserve. This reserve is home to endemic birds, and some steep trails that lead to a few lookout points. From these lookout points, you can enjoy sweeping views of the surrounding hills and valleys. Leashed dogs are welcome to enjoy the trails with their two legged friends.

If you don’t have the whole day to dive into the tropical wilderness, check out one of Hilo’s smaller urban parks! A favorite is the Panaewa Park. This park is family and dog friendly, and  has big open athletic fields that your pooch can run and sniff on while there are no sports in play. Just make sure your dog is leashed and picked up after! With all of these places to explore and play, Hilo is a tropical puppy paradise.
