On Saturday September 23, 2017, humans and hounds alike will hit the trails of Uniacke Estate Museum Park in support of first responders with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in need of service dogs.

Presented by Muddy Paws Adventures, CIAD (Canadian Intervention & Assistance Dogs) and The Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia, Trails N’ Tails is a 60 minute nature hike  through some of Hants County’s most picturesque trails. Participants have the option to make a donation or collect pledges with all proceeds going directly  to providing service dogs for Nova Scotia first responders living with PTSD.

New this year to Trails N’ Tails is the  First Responder Team Challenge,  and a Go Fund Me page for those who would like to donate but can’t join us at the park.


Along with raising funds, Trails N’ Tails  is designed to expose the mental health benefits of spending time in nature and the therapeutic advantages of dogs. “Five  years ago, I left my career  to launch Muddy Paws Adventures.  It wasn’t long before I realized what a positive impact hiking with a pack of happy, energetic dogs had on my well-being both physically and mentally,” says Linda Townsend. “My goal is to share the experience with others while helping  essential canine-related causes.
