Parenting can be tough...especially with an active pooch in the house as well. This group is for moms and dads who are interested in meeting up for walks/hikes with their kids AND their dogs. It's a great opportunity to meet other parents of two-legged and four-legged loved ones and exercise that doggy that may need a little extra time and TLC since baby came along. This group is Bay Area based but more specifically the East Bay. Some of the walks/hikes may be off-road types so a jogging type stroller is recommended. You do not need to have a B.O.B. It just sounded good in the group name. ALL dogs should be familiar and friendly with children. They should also be well-behaved with people in general. It's a plus if they are able to heel with the stroller so we don't have any traffic accidents on paths/trails. Look forward to hearing from you!
