A different kind of treat

Someday, it will feel like fall. And when it finally does, you might feel like stretching all six legs - you and your faithful pooch.

A new paperback by Doug Gelbert, Doggin' Maryland ($12.95; Cruden Bay Books; hikewithyourdog.com), rates 100 places in the Free State on their views, trail quality and suitability for dog walking. It spells out, in some cases, which parks have designated areas for you and your best friend, and places where one of you isn't welcome.

In addition, it covers beach regulations, what gear your pet will need on the trail and how to keep your dog safe and the trails you hike pristine.
