Pack Walk – McDowell Grove/Naperville
- Sep 16, 2018
Anyone is welcome to attend the Pack Walks. We would love to see not only our DePAW clients, but your family, friends, coworkers, and even neighbors! It’s completely FREE!
Pack Walks are a leashed community walk around a local forest preserve or park. They are a way of building our community amongst fellow dog owners interested in meeting new friends, getting exercise for yourself and your dog, and learning better “walk behavior” as well as new leash skills with your dog. These walks are not meant for dog socializing, rather teaching good public behavior.
Pack Walks will be held on Sundays and meet @ 10:00am SHARPwith step-off @10:10am. Please bring water for yourself and your dog and flea and tick prevention is strongly recommended since trails can be wooded with tall grass.
Please keep in mind many of these locations are also available to bikers, hikers, horseback riders, disc golf, etc. All will be great distraction training for your dog.
Walk lengths will vary, with shorter walks in the hot Summer months. Breaks are taken as needed for dogs to rest in the shade and drink water.
Meeting/Parking locations are marked on the maps by a purple paw print. See the links on our Facebook events or type the numbers into Google Maps for an exact location!
We have an email list for Pack Walk Updates or cancellations due to weather. A link for the location and directions will be sent the day prior to the walk. You may also email for questions or if you have trouble finding a location. To join the list, please email training@DePAWK9.com
