The Good Dog, Bad Leash Weekly Walk

Hey Everybody!

We're moving the weekly walk to alternating between Friday and Sunday evening.

This is a weekly walk for dogs with with any kind of on-leash behavior issues.  Chasing squirrels!  Barking all crazy!  Lunging at bicyclists!!!

Pepps and one (or both) of us will be walking every Friday starting at 7pm at Jefferson Park, starting out near the Beacon Food Forest (S Dakota St & 16th Ave S)

Loosely, we're thinking of this as a little less social than the usual meetups. more of a quick 30ish minute walk to give the dogs some regular practice.

Of course, all sorts of dogs welcome.  Highly reactive?  Heck yes, you definitely should come.  Super mellow?  Heck yes, having calming zen tea influences awesome!

    Yikes! It looks like the "Good dog, good leash" or whatever I was going to call it is on hold--Sparky's on "bed rest" for 4-6 weeks--trying to avoid surgery for his knee--I'm sorry guys! If someone wants to go for it in the meantime please do. Otherwise I'll come back to this as soon as he is better. Thanks for your interest--walking together seems like a really great way for dogs to learn to be OK with other dogs, and learn other socialization as well.
    Take care! --Katey & Sparky

      Hi Katey! We'd love to join you for some walks and socialization with our 1-year-old rescue Gunther. We've had him for a couple of months as a foster and are just finalizing the adoption. He's very friendly and curious but definitely needs some more exposure to other pups! Please let us know if walks or other get-togethers are happening in the future!

      I definitely will! If we continue to see progress (it's slow!) I'll revisit this in February as long as the vet okay's longer walks again. In the meantime good luck with Gunther!

    Hi, I am new to the group and I was wondering if these weekly walks still occur. I have a 3 year old whippet pit mix who I recently adopted and is in need of excersize and some socialization. She is super friendly and loves other dogs but just gets too excited and needs to learn some manners. Please let me know! Any information and tips are greatly appreciated.

      We'd love to be involved in the next walk as well! I'm new to Meet-Up, so I'm not sure how this all works, but would love to meet your pits!

    Sorry you guys! I haven't forgotten...was out of town, and Sparky's been injured--watch for new meet-up, "Good dog, Good Leash Walk" at the same park, Beacon Hill Jefferson Park, on 2nd and 4th Saturdays at 11am, the first one on 11/24.....I hope this works for you, if not let me know soon, signing it up on Tuesday...!

    Hi all--Just wondering if there was any interest in a walk similar to what Rochelle and Shae started ...maybe every other Saturday?
    I've never initiated a Meet Up before , I'll give it a whirl if there is any interest..
    in any case, thanks for the great walks!

      And I'm thinking to continue on at Jefferson Park at Beacon Hill. It is a great park, easy to see the lay of the land and see who's out there, like offleash dogs or other potential hazards.

      Sounds great! However I am mostly available the 1st and third Saturday of the month. Not really sure but I will try my hardest to make it! Let me know what you decide

    dang I may have pressed "post" like 6 times--not very technically literate! anyway, was trying to respond to Rochelle--so sorry times are difficult right now--hope that you guys can drop in (what I think will be) a Saturday walk sometime in the future--it seems like people are interested.....?
    I'll try to get this going with Meet Up within the week--probably the first walk would be 2nd Saturday in November(we'll be out of town before then)
    also if anyone else wants to instigate please do!

      Sorry about that! Our female will barely set foot outside the house when it's sprinkling, let alone pouring. Sorry we missed it - ours are pretty wound up this week and needed the exercise!

    We were all ready to come over for the walk tonight, but it's pouring and the weather forecast is saying thunderstorms. We're going to beg off for this week and come to the next one. Sorry!

    Hey everybody

    Rochs and I have a huge weekend ahead of us. Planning and last minute details getting crazzy, so we're not gonna make the walk this week.

    Have a great one and we'll see you on the 29th!

    We might need to be in the back or further away to start with....had a bad event on Wed--3 off-leash dogs attacked us when we were walking down the street. Spark is OK, his puncture wounds are healing...I'm more traumatized than he is! I figure it would be good to walk with good folk and dogs, to "get back in the saddle" so to speak, but we may need a little more space...? not sure... but we will see you Friday.
