What we're about

We're similar to Boy and Girl Scouts except we earn our scout badges with our dogs. Dog Scouts of America is all about dogs learning good manners and good behaviors. We have social play get-togethers, dog walks and hikes. We encourage people to help their dogs be all they can be, and in the process we all have a lot of fun. http://dogscouts.org/base/about-us/what-we-...

Dog Scouts of America Mission: To improve the lives of dogs, their owners, and society through humane education, positive training, and community involvement.

CANCELED DUE TO VIRUS: Monthly Pack Walk - Pt. Pinole Regional Park

Point Pinole Regional Shoreline

We LOVE our Pack Walks! Please note: we will do this if weather is not heavy rain. Light misting, we're still a 'go'. Fairly chilly, we're a 'go'. Please note: USE THE ATLAS ROAD ENTRANCE. Most google directions will send you to the wrong entrance, which is usually off the Giant Highway. We will gather at 9:45am at the picnic tables right next to the parking lot.
You might want to bring a water bowl for your dog. While there is water available, we are cautious regarding the spread of doggie flu and pneumonia, both of which are being seen in the Bay Area. Off leash is OK if your dog has good recall and is socially safe around other dogs.
But consider this: some dogs, maybe mine, are hugely tempted to run off and take a dip in the Bay. So, ... plan accordingly.
Questions? Let me know via the Meetup message system.
