Whether you’re planning a vacation with your dog this summer or considering a vacation to seek out another dog for your family, be sure to check out the new packages from Utah’s Red Mountain Resort.

Located in Utah’s beautiful red-rock country, the resort’s 55-acre scenic backyard and nearby Snow Canyon Park provide a real playground for pooches. Pet guests are pampered with organic treats, food, and water dishes upon arrival, while their owners enjoy the resort’s superb dining including char-grilled wild salmon, beef sirloin, and deconstructed blueberry cheesecake.

The resort offers several great programs for animal lovers (including a chance to meet wild horses). Dog lovers will especially appreciate these offerings:

  • Pound Puppy Hike (complimentary for guests) – We love this option! In partnership with Ivins’ City No-Kill Animal Shelter, guests are assigned a friendly puppy or dog for a three- to four-mile hike through St. George Valley and Padre Canyon. Participants are supplied with doggie treats and adoption is available and encouraged.
  • Hiking with Blondie ($59 per person) – During this rewarding four-hour hike, participants experience Utah’s  red-rock country through the eyes of Blondie, golden retriever and AKC-certified “Canine Good Citizen,” and her human companion, Robin, a nationally certified animal control specialist.
  • Inaugural Hike for Hounds ($35 per person) – In this exciting adventure launching November 12, guests can bring their dogs on a relaxing and fun-filled hike along the rolling hills of Southwest Utah. The hike concludes at the resort with a delicious picnic lunch, entertainment, and treats for the dogs. All proceeds go to support Ivins’ No Kill Animal Shelter.
