Dog Walk Club will meet for a walk at Reservoir Park on Sunday, 3/17/2024. We’ll meet at 3 pm at the dock at Reservoir Park at 300 Reservoir Park Drive in Southern Pines, NC. This is an easy loop trail around the lake with plenty of pretty views. Our hangout spot for this walk is The Sly Fox Pub by popular demand!
This is an easy flat wide trail suitable for strollers and bikes as well as walking. I guarantee it will be crowded with both people and dogs! The trail is mostly shaded which is nice but you will still have great lake views throughout. We’ll probably do the loop twice because it’s not a very long trail.
We had such a good time at this place that we’re coming back! The Sly Fox Pub serves classic British gastropub fare with an innovative twist alongside a wide selection of craft brews and cocktails. They have lots of small plates and shareable options. The food here is fantastic. We’ll be on the cute patio on the side of the building.
Dog Walk Club meets in Sanford on the 1st Sunday and in Southern Pines on the 3rd Sunday of the month. We vary the walks and hang-out spots- and yes we definitely take suggestions! Littles are welcome as long as they can keep up (we’re not fast, trust me).
Jael and Dr. Meghan provide Fear Free training tips to help your dog walk nicely on a loose leash. We do not accept any dog on a slip lead or a choke, prong, or shock collar into our club. If your dog needs training, it will be with positive reinforcement, so don’t feed your dog before the walk, and bring lots of tasty treats. Jael conducts a private 2-session Leash Walk Boot Camp Training Course for anyone whose dogs need of more assistance.
Everyone is welcome to join us in this free community event. So grab a dog, your family, and a human friend, and hang out with us!
If you want to do a longer hike, join Dr. Meghan and Annika at noon to do an out-and-back walk on Forest Creek Greenway. Meet in Reservoir Park in front of the docks at noon. We’ll cross Airport Road and walk for an hour, then turn around and come back. I’m going to pack a lunch to enjoy in one of the shelters at Reservoir Park, then lead the Reservoir Park loop walk. Forest Creek Trail is usually not busy at all. It’s very shady and quiet. The terrain varies a bit from packed dirt to deep loose sand, which is difficult for strollers and bikes. Otherwise, it’s a really nice trail.
