Walk-My-Dog Program

Safe, fun, outdoor activity while maintaining social distance

As a good neighbor during this Covid-19 pandemic, we are launching our free Walk-My-Dog Program.

What is the Walk-My-Dog Program?

It’s simple, fun and good for you and your furry family members. The concept is similar to a library’s summer reading program, but instead of reading books, participants are walking miles with their dogs.

Walk your own dog(s) on your own schedule and on your own route to win prizes.

Why do it?

Fear, anxiety and stress are at an all-time high. Getting outdoors and walking your dog decreases anxiety and stress and increases your bond even while social distancing.

Studies show that folks who have a training partner are more likely to stay motivated and fit – and that is especially true if your training partner is a dog!

Pull out the leash and the tail is wagging – how can you say no?

Who can participate?
  • All ages
  • Clients, non-clients
  • Dog-owners, non-dog-owners
Ready, Set, Walk!
Track Your Distance
  • Walkers can use any route, any time of day, as long as they are also walking with a dog.
  • Walk your dog, a friend’s dog or even with your family group walking a dog.
  • Participate on our Facebook page sharing your tips and photos for great neighborhood routes and memories.
Engage on Social Media
  • Email your walking photos to for use on our Facebook, Instagram (FamilyPetHealthTN) and website to help encourage others to keep going!
  • Be on the lookout for fun weekly social media challenges for your chance to win additional prizes.
  • Use the hashtags #walkmydog #familypethealth #wagitbetter on your social media posts.
Weekly Social Media Challenge
We invite you to engage with the Walk My Dog program through social media. Each week, we will post a challenge for you to create a social media post related to that week’s topic. The submission can be a picture or video but MUST include your dog. Use the hashtags #WalkMyDog #FamilyPetHealth #WagItBetter and tag the sponsoring business so we can search the submissions and select ones at random for fun prizes. You can use pictures or video shot any time during the challenge but it must be posted during the particular week for the prize.
