Proud to be an American - "Fourth Of July Walk"

  • Jul 4, 2013 · 10:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Join us four our annual PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN fourth of July walk -- American Pit Bull Terriers and American Staffordshire Terriers are America's Dog. (Now's a good time to go to our America's Dog campaign website at ).

Dogs in this walk must appear to be purebred or mostly purebred American Pit Bull Terriers or American Staffordshire Terriers. This is the only walk we do with this rule -- it's because we're showcasing America's Dog and we want to represent Pit Bulls and not confuse the public or any media that may show up.

Come wearing a red, white, or blue shirt. Dress your dog up patriotically. We'll get creative and color coordinate our walk in red, white, and blue -- each color will walk together to make a "red, white and blue" human banner (so if you want to walk with someone specifically, make sure you're wearing the same color shirt LOL!)

Please ONLY bring dogs that are appropriate for this event -- that means dogs that can behave in public, aren't dog aggressive or aggressive toward people, and can easily handle crowds, horses, noise, etc. Please also keep a safe distance between your dog and all other dogs! And make sure your dog is wearing a very secure leash and collar (all prong collars and head halters MUST be backed up if you choose to walk your dog on one).

Bring sunscreen, water for you and your dog, and poop bags. KEEP IN MIND THIS MAY VERY WELL BE A HOT DAY. We'll be walking in shade as much as possible, but if your dog cannot tolerate walks or heat, leave him or her at home (or feel free to leave the walk early if your dog appears to be getting too tired).

Want to come without a dog? You are welcome! We do need some folks to help hand out educational materials to people who are interested, possibly hold a banner, etc. Email me if you'd like to come without a dog so I know how many free hands we have for brochures, etc.! (email: [masked])

Please arrive on time. This is a fun, laid back, casual stroll around Old Sacramento to remind people that "Pit Bulls" are America's Dog!

    If its too hot, I'll not be able to go. My boy doesn't do heat well unless there's a pool for him to play in.

      You can always come without him! :) I am probably going to leave my old man Savvy behind, depending on the weather.
