As Seen In The Arizona Republic


We scheduled our ride for Jan 21st , the afternoon — @1:00 The airlines lost our luggage, so my husband and I had to wear what we had flown in with. Nice pants and shoes— We wouldn’t recommend this dress attire for everyone – (casual dress is highly recommended) We had the best time of our trip – The terrain is absolutely breath taking and our guides were very knowledgeable. Dirty , wet , dusty and laughing when we arrived back to our car. The memory of the ride has been spoken in many of our conversations and tales regarding our trip to Arizona. Well worth every penny and this afternoon trip is highly recommended to all of our friends and anyone we meet that will be traveling to Arizona in the near future. WE WILL RETURN FOR A RIDE.

Just returned home from our awesome weekend in the Fountain Hills area. We went out on a tour with you on Saturday morning at 9;00. What a fabulous time Dean and I had! It was two hours of sheer excitement and fun! The C2 that we took out was durable going through all the different types of terrain. Randy was a great tour guide, very informative, friendly and a good story teller of things that happen in the desert.

You really get dusty and dirty but what a great way to explore the desert..I can see how people get lost out there..so many trails! I would defiantly recommend this tour to anyone with any sense of adventure and love of the outdoors.

I just wanted to drop a note to tell you what an AWESOME time my family and I had on your tour. It was way more than we expected and worth every penny! My original plan was to be a passenger, but when we arrived both of my teenagers decided they did NOT want to drive, so that left my husband and I as the drivers. I was a little unsure of myself – especially since I was first in line, but I did my absolute best to keep up with the guide and and had an amazing experience in the process! Of course, by the time we were finished, we were hot, a little wet and extremely dusty – just as you had forewarned! My only regret is that as a driver, I think I missed out on much of the scenery. 🙁 

If / when I ever make it back to Phoenix, I will definitely be visiting you again. I would highly recommend your tour to EVERYONE! Thanks again for the highlight of our Spring Break, 2011

I just wanted to write and say thanks to Debbie and her team for an awesome time with Desert dogs! We had 8 guys in our stag/bachelor group, we were picked up by Brian on time in a cool 3 level convertible Hummer (who was our tour guide cause we were asking a 100 questions)! We then were dropped off in the Desert only meet the DRILL SARGENT STEVE! He was awesome as he kept us in line! The cars were custom made and really cool as we went across water, over large rocks, down hills, tight trails, and speed. It was a combination of everything one could ask for in Desert Dogging trip. At the half way mark we pulled out and the 2 guides were extremely knowledgeable about the various critters and animals that lived in the desert, the plant and cactus life and surrounding areas.

We ended the day off with a perfect dinner sitting in the middle of nowhere eating ribs, chicken, and corn on the cob put on by the Desert Dog team! We did a lot of events this stag weekend and everyone agreed this was the best activity anyone had ever done! Thanks again and you will see us again

I am the Director of one of the top outdoor education programs in Texas and was looking for an experience for my staff that would live up to their expectations of what a first rate program should be. I researched all the tours in the Phoenix area and the Desert Dog seemed to offer the best experience and value. I could not have been more pleased with our experience. Coming from someone who knows what adults and children expect out of an outdoor experience, the Desert Dog does it RIGHT! Todd Witt. Director of School Programs. Sky Ranch

The team at Desert Dog was fantastic and the excursion was one of the most fun and memorable corporate events our company has ever hosted. The trail guides were very knowledgeable, incredibly professional, and made sure every detail was handled to ensure it was a great experience for every single participant. The office staff was responsive and fabulous to work with, and even helped create a totally customized ride and game that had never been done before. Thanks to everyone at Desert Dog!”
