The Dolomites are a paradise for every four-legged friend. That's because furry noses love being around high mountains and wide valleys. High up amidst the pale peaks of the Dolomites or in the cornfields down in the valley. There are lots of suitable walking paths in the Dolomites for both active or more easygoing dogs. To the lake at Braies, on the Alpe di Siusi plateau, in the wilds of Val d'Ega, through woodland, over rocks or meadows. A sheer world of adventure!
