What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in pack walking and socializing with dogs. Whether you're working on your dog's reactivity or simply want to reinforce social skills, this is the group for you. We do ask that you give each member and their pup ample space when meeting - we do not encourage nose to nose interactions at all before any pack walk, even if your pups know each other. (After walks, playtime and interaction is acceptable as long as each owner's dog is OK with it.) Our goal is to create a safe, structured environment for our dogs to feel comfortable in a group/public setting and not all dogs are fit to "play" in this setting.

NOTE: If a dog is sporting a yellow or red bandana, that means "I NEED EXTRA SPACE."

All skill levels are welcome. We switch between north county and San Diego, Saturdays and Sundays, and mornings and afternoon walks - so if you can't make it to one, keep a look out for the next event! Looking forward to exploring the outdoors with everybody.

Liberty Station Pack Walk

2837 Historic Decatur Rd

We'll park in the lot where the Fisherman's processing is.

The address will take you there.

We welcome ALL dogs, breeds, temperaments.

However please note that this means dogs of different skill levels. Some dogs may be at the canine good citizen level and others are at the I need to learn social manners level.

The great thing is we are supportive of each other just and we respect where each of us is.

Our goal is to:
CONNECT with our dogs
CAPTURE CALM behavior
CO-EXIST as a group

We want to show our dogs that they are safe with us. We want to reward them when they choose to connect with us in spite of the highly distracting world around them.

• We discourage nose-to-nose interactions - refrain from introducing dogs until AFTER the pack walk (we can provide a demo upon request)

• If your dog is vocal and likes to bark - please stand at the edge of the group so that he/she doesn't trigger other dogs. Also please walk at the back of the pack. The goal is to find a place where your dog is relaxed. Walking inside their threshold stresses them out and that's not the goal of the walk. We want our dogs to have a calm walk so if that means you have to start off 30+ feet away - that's TOTALLY OK because we respect where your journey and if that is what your dog needs, so be it. We choose locations that allow you this much space.

• Only dogs who are up-to-date on rabies shot

• NO RETRACTABLE LEASHES are permitted

• For Dogs-In-Need-Of-Space (DINOS) if your dog is working on socialization, learning leash manners, has anxiety or medical concern, please BE SAFE and do not interact with other dogs -Bring a ***yellow ribbon*** on your leash to signify your dog is a DINOS dog

• You must supply your own poops bags & water

• Maintain enough space between dogs so they are walking as close as possible without them having impulses to smell each other. The goal is harmony and co-existence with space.

• We all walk at different paces, but please DO NOT pass the Pack Walk Coordinator unless otherwise instructed.

• When a dog needs a water break we will all take a break together as a group, please do not pass others.

Our goal is to walk as a pack - close enough for positive interactions - far enough as needed if your dog is reactive. We want our dogs to have a safe and structured social experience.

Discovery Lake - 9am

650 Foxhall Dr

We welcome ALL dogs, breeds, temperaments.
There are many trails at this location - We will be doing a light trail that starts wide and goes single file towards the top with slight elevation. The trail is about 2.5 mi from start to finish.

However please note that this means dogs of different skill levels. Some dogs may be at the canine good citizen level and others are at the I need to learn social manners level.

D.I.Y Raw Dog Food Workshop

3625 Dalbergia St

$55.00

We welcome everyone, even if this is your first time making dog food or your 100th. Real Dog Box is putting on this intimate workshop for the first 4 people to sign up. The class will cost $55 and run close to 1.5hrs long. After RSVPing, you will receive a message through meetup to confirm the payment through Venmo or card.

We will be working hands-on to make your own dog's food while going over:
- the different methods of making raw dog food
- how to transition to raw
- how to calculate your dog's feeding amount
- the benefits the ingredients provide to the overall meal
- how to source different ingredients

We will be making a 10-pound blend of turkey, duck, smelt, pork, and rabbit. We will be handling bones, fur, raw organs, and muscle meats.

We will provide the cutting boards, aprons, scales, knives, and gloves.
You are encouraged to bring paper and writing materials to take notes and your own food storage containers.
We will have 32oz containers available for 80 cents each.

Our goal is to get you more comfortable making your own food at home by giving you hands-on experience. We'll show you how easy and cheap it actually is to make your own dog food at home.
