I would love to bring my dog on more trails to do this. There is a bad stigma about dogs on trails but honestly, I feel my dogs do less damage to the environment than most peoples kids. I obey the rules. He is ALWAYS leashed and I pick up after him and pack it out. Nothing worse than dog poop on trails or bags of it. Don't blame the dogs, blame the humans. This (your post) is a wonderful post and a great idea and it should become a bigger thing. Keep up the great ideas.
