Safe, fun, outdoor activity while maintaining social distance

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?

Walking your dog provides an excellent foundation for good physical and mental health, both for you and your furry friend. Getting outside and walking your dog helps burn calories, improve cardiovascular fitness, strengthen bones and joints, decrease stress and improve the bond with your pet.

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

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

  • 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.

Meet Your Goal and Win!
  • You will be able to submit your mileage weekly to our website or turn it all in at once at the end of the program.
