Have you wanted to get together with other dog lovers to hike the local parks, take your dog for a pooch plunge or get together at the dog park (private or public)? If so, come join us on some outdoor adventures. We have a huge cookout/BBQ twice a year at one of the local parks. All of our events are planned around our four-legged friends. We are a group of responsible pet owners that love spending time with our pets.
The group rules are as follows:
Your dog must have on a current RABIES TAG at all times, or you must have rabies certificate with you at all times. Most parks require this and you will be given a citation/fee if you can't show proof of current rabies vaccine to a ranger/other authority. We recommend that only dogs who are vaccinated (distemper/parvo and bordetella) and are free of internal & external parasites (fleas/ticks and intestinal worms) attend our events.
DOGS MUST STAY ON LEASH AT ALL TIMES and Extend-a-leads (aka "flexi-leashes") are not allowed on our hikes and you must have your pet on a leash no longer than 6 feet Most parks require this. They are not appropriate for group hikes. They can get wrapped around people and/or dogs legs very easily and have caused pretty serious injuries.
Our motto is to leave NO trace behind, so please clean up after your pet. Most parks require this and you will be given a citation/fee by a ranger/other authority. Many pathogens which infect people and dogs are spread through feces, so we must do our part to prevent infections.
Always abide by the posted park/venue rules .
Aggressive dogs (and people) and female dogs "in heat" are not permitted at our events. It is up to the discretion of the event host whether a dog (or person) is posing a safety threat to an individual or group. All hikers must listen to the commands of the event host, including a request to leave the event.
NO KIDS UNDER 5 years old can attend for safety reasons. Although we like seeing families enjoying our events, there are dogs who are nervous or don't behave well around young kids.
