What we're about

This OC Dogs Meetup was started for dog lovers, who want to participate in dog-friendly activities around Orange County (and wherever else the fun might take us). This group is focused on the enrichment of dog's lives (and our lives), by trying new things, making new friends, and just getting out of the house. Activities can include a walk around the park, a Howl-o-ween event, or even a day with an expert (to help expand your dog care knowledge) - the sky is the limit and it's always more fun with friends; so grab your dog and meetup with us!

Fullerton Pack Walk

Craig Regional Park

Come join us for a free community pack walk. Bring water and a towel just in case your dog wants to take a dip in the stream on the way back. Rule#1 - Please Be on time. Join Falco Dog training for a Free 2 mile Pack Walk around Craig Regional Park in Fullerton. They are a great way to socialize your dog and get them used to being around other dogs in a structured and controlled environment. This is good for all types of dogs (reactive, non reactive) We meet in the first parking lot by the entrance. We leave promptly at 9am so be on time. (street parking is free, 5.00 entrance fee if you park inside) What is a Pack Walk? A group of dog handlers go for a walk together in a structured environment. A pack walk is good for most dogs (if you’re unsure if your dog is one of them, just ask us!). It’s a way to exercise, properly socialize, and train that is safe and fun for all. Whether you have a small dog or a BIG dog, dogs are always in training, so join us! Structured Environment Dogs walk in a long line at first. By the end of the walk, some dogs bunch up together as walking buddies and some dogs just enjoy the camaraderie of the walk from a safe distance. No dog introductions face-to-face, even if you have a social dog on your hands! The key to a successful pack walk is the rhythm of the walk – as long as we’re moving things will go great! We move at a casual pace that works for most fitness levels. Following the rules will guarantee a successful experience (see below). Every dog is different: some dogs will walk side-by-side after the first 15 minutes, but other dogs may need a few pack walks to get there. No judging here! Science Behind Pack Walks Dogs have a strong instinctual need to socialize with and explore the world. As we know, many dogs are reactive to other dogs, but these dogs still have a need to get out and socialize. Pack walks satisfy this need. Dogs can safely socialize without physically interacting. Even though the dogs are not physically touching each other, they can smell and see the other dogs, which is still considered socialization. Walking provides the dog with a lot of mental stimulation, which most dogs are lacking. Furthermore, mental stimulation will tire out a dog a lot faster than physical stimulation (e.g. running in the back yard) What It’s Not Time for your dog to “meet” new dogs Playtime What are the Rules? Lots of No’s = Lots of Happy, Healthy Dogs It’s important to attend the pack walk knowing the expectations. To enjoy the walk and set our dogs up for success, we need you to follow the rules. * No face-to-face introductions ever. No sniffing. We promise that just being near each other will be good enough. Dogs should have minimal interaction with each other, because they should be focused on their people and where they’re going * One dog per handler unless approved by pack leader * Family members are welcome to join the walks, but only one person is allowed to handle the dog * No retractable leashes * Respect space * Even dogs who were walking side-by-side are still not allowed to greet each other during the water break. * Aggressive dogs need to have muzzle What should I bring? Water bottle and small water dish for a scheduled water break Poop bags Proper collar, and leash (no Retractables) High value treats (hot dogs, cheese, beef jerky, lunch meat, etc.) Wear comfortable clothes and tennis shoes Your camera! We definitely approve of you promoting the experience and bragging about our meet up. Stay after and speak to a trainer to help problem solve any issues your having. We will offer a free 15 min evaluation.
