PechaKucha Night PDX, vol. 27: Happy Place
Our founder, Chip, is a presenter at PechaKucha Night PDX, vol. 27: "Happy Place." He'll be speaking about his love for hiking and backpacking with his dog, and how he wanted to share that passion with others through this group! PechaKucha is an engaging, fun event. Speakers get twenty, 20-second slides, so every speech keeps moving and stays exciting. This is a 21+ event, so you can grab a drink or three while you listen to and watch some very inspirational presentations. Tickets for this event are $5 in advance at or $10 at the door. Get your tickets in advance though, as the event usually sells out! Come support our founder, learn the story behind PDX Metro Pack Walks, and enjoy a great night out thanks to the amazing speakers at PechaKucha Night PDX. Hope to see you there!

What we're about

Pack Walks combine exercise and socializing for both humans and their faithful companions. Join us on the first Saturday of every month for DOG-FRIENDLY hikes and walks in and around the Portland, Oregon Metro area. When possible, Pack members may gather for food and beverages at nearby dog-friendly restaurants after the walk. My Australian Shepherd is looking forward to meeting all our new pack-mates! If you love your dog(s) and the outdoors, this is the group for you. Owners must follow leash and waste laws, dogs must be properly vaccinated and tagged. Excitement is understandable with your dog(s), and we will help your dog learn to socialize, however please refrain from allowing aggressive - biting, fighting - behavior.

Our monthly Pack Walks are fun, social, outdoor walks with our dogs between 2-4 miles, in and around the Portland OR metro area. The monthly walk is scheduled the first Saturday, at 10:00, with changing locations.

Who is welcome? Everyone, and every dog is welcome.

My dog is learning social skills, can she come? Yes. Group walks can help your dog learn to socialize as they bond over common goals and release anxiety through exercise. The group is very understanding, and will give your dog all the space she/he needs.

There are shy dogs and very friendly dogs in the group. My dog is an aussie, and he likes to bark to tell me what's happening. Other dogs hang out at the edge of the group and wonder what the fuss is about. Once walking though, all the dogs like to bump shoulders and sniff around together.

What kinds of dogs come? All kinds of dogs and humans enjoy the walks - everything from big, poofy Bernese mountain dogs to little, poofy Pomeranians.
