What we're about
Something that all dogs need: Exercise, Walks & Mental Stimulation!!
Pooky's club was originally established in 2003 as a "cockers" only meetup. I created it to exercise & socialize my "reactive" dog Pooky around other dogs & to meet other cocker owners in the area who love the breed as much as I do. Soon thereafter, people started contacting me saying that they didnt have a cocker, but could they come pleazzzze? So effective 2006 I changed it to Pooky's All Breed Dog Walking Club!
All breeds & ages are welcome! The club has grown by leaps & bounds! We meet at various local parks in northern NJ when the weather is nice. We Walk, Hike, hold Yappy Hours, go to the Beach, have Ice Cream Socials, Birthday Parties, go on Field trips, attend dog related events & much more!
Your dog should be friendly with other dogs however reactive dogs are welcome & encouraged. If your dog is reactive, I will help you work through it. We advise that you come 10 minutes later and stay slightly on the outside of the group and begin working with your dog. Once all the dogs begin walking, all in the same direction, you integrate into the group slowly.
Plus the dogs go home tired! A tired dog is a good dog.!
Your dog should be leashed & up to date on shots. (No Retractable Leashes please)
PLEASE No Nose-to-Nose greetings!! (Unless approved by the owner of the other dog)
Please bring water & poop bags.
Training tips are also offered. Treats are recommended to reward good behavior.
We've met some amazing people, some great dogs & made new friends! Everyone becomes our extended family!
