Dog Walk Club- 8/6 White Pines Preserve
August 6 @ 3:00 PM - 5:00 PMFree
Dog Walk Club: White Pines Preserve 8/6
Dog Walk Club will meet for a walk in the lovely, shady White Pines Preserve on Sunday, August 6. We’ll meet at 3 pm at the first parking lot in White Pines Preserve at 548 South Rocky River Road, Sanford NC 27330. I chose White Pines Preserve because it is entirely shady and is typically several degrees cooler than in town. We also want to avoid lakes and ponds in the summer because of the possibility of toxic blue-green algae that kills dogs. We’ll be sure to take a dip in the safe Rocky River to cool ourselves and the dogs too. These trails are narrow and full of roots, definitely not stroller-friendly. The trails can get a bit overgrown in the summer, so be prepared to walk through tall brush. I’m going to wear lightweight hiking pants that roll up and bring my water shoes, but I’m wearing boots for the hiking part. Our hangout spot for this walk is Wild Dogs Brewing Company at 136 North Steele Street in Sanford.

If you want to just meet us at the hangout spot, there are no judgments 😄
About Dog Walk Club:
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!
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 are in need of more assistance.
Everyone is welcome to join us in this free community event. So grab a dog, and a human friend, and hang out with us!
