About the event
Group dog walk for fun, to spend time with your dog, and/or to practice skills. This walk will be a short walk with breaks (because puppies who are fully vaccinated are welcome...but prepared to carry your puppy if necessary) of 2 miles or less of easy walking on dirt or grass trails with frequent roots and occasional rocks on the trails. Grass trails may be wet and may be in full sun (which should be fine in winter, but be aware!). Wear appropriate footwear. Bring poop bags and water (and a bowl) for your dog. Bring water for yourself. There is a portapotty at this location. We'll meet in the parking lot closest to the starting trail (look for my off-white 2008 Ford Escape with "Haulin' Auss" sticker on the rear window).
Wildlife are often visible at this location and dogs are required to be on-leash.
Dogs must be up-to-date on rabies and DHPP vaccines. Bordetella and canine influenza vaccines are HIGHLY recommended as dogs may be in close proximity during the walk. Leptospirosis vaccine is recommended as we will be walking near bodies of water where wildlife live. Tick preventive is essential as we live in Pennsylvania, the tick-borne illness capital of the country.
