Dog Walk Club- White Pines Nature Preserve 3/5
March 5 @ 3:00 PM - 5:00 PMFree
Dog Walk Club White Pines Nature Preserve 3/5
Dog Walk Club is doing a hike at White Pines Nature Preserve on Sunday 3/5. Meet at the parking lot at Shiner’s Way trailhead at 3pm. We’ll start west (left) and do the Shiner’s trail loop to Rocky Bluffs, Schoolkids, Deep Bluffs then Gilbert Yager. Then we’ll walk on the road to our cars in the other lot. White Pines Preserve is a 275-acre sanctuary that offers unspoiled- and unmanicured- hiking trails. These trails are not well-maintained, I’ll say that right now. You will encounter fallen trees, roots, rocks, and mud, and sometimes the trails are so leaf-littered and overgrown that they’re hard to find. But if you like that sort of thing, this is the place. We’ll walk by Rocky and Deep Rivers, up and down steep inclines. I definitely recommend sturdy waterproof hiking boots, long pants, and tick protection for this dog walk!
The good news is that it is unlikely we will meet anyone else on this walk. So your dog can be on a long leash and won’t have to work very hard to stay focused, except for all the wildlife. It’s a good problem to have.

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!
