DOG WALK EVENT INFORMATION

 

COSTUME CONTEST:

There will be raffle baskets and prizes for the "Best Dressed Big Dog" and the "Best Dressed Little Dog." Participants must be registered walkers and in attendance to win. David Frei and Cat Greenleaf will serve as the judges.

 

DOG TRAINING TIPS:

  • Remember to practice over a four-week period leading up to the walk so that you and your dog are properly trained and ready for the event.
  • Practice walking on trails and in other locations where people walk with their dogs to acclimate your dog to other dogs in a pack with distractions.

 

SAFETY TIPS:

  • Stay hydrated with water at start/finish. Watering holes will be available along the route.
  • Make sure to stop if your dog is lagging behind. Pay close attention to the energy and stress levels of your dog. Pulling or dragging your dog is never allowed.
  • Have proof of rabies vaccination handy.
  • Dogs must be on leashes at all times. Use of retractable leashes is highly discouraged and can be hazardous in a crowd.
  • Inspect your dog’s pads for any sign of cuts and wear. A veterinarian will be available on-site.
  • Don’t forget to have fun!
