11th Annual Paso Robles Dog Jog



 

Dogs and their families are invited to join Sherwood Dog Park volunteers on a 2k or 4k jog or walk through the lush Vina Robles vineyard at the 11th Annual Dog Jog on Saturday, May 4, 2019.  After the jog, listen to live music as you enjoy lunch, wine tasting and tour the event expo comprised of local, dog loving vendors and silent auction items.  Participation in this fundraiser is a great way to “actively” help support the ongoing maintenance and improvements for the Sherwood Dog Park located in Paso Robles. Registration for this event is already open.

“What a splendid way to spend time with your dog while jogging through the vineyards at beautiful Vina Robles winery,” says Larry Miller, Sherwood Dog Park’s board president. “The event is filled with activities for the whole family to enjoy. It’s an opportunity to come together as a community, have some fun with your pet and support your local dog park.”

An early registration fee of $30, includes: 2k or 4k walk, jog, or run, commemorative dog bandana, goody bag, finisher’s medal, a voucher for lunch and a glass of Vina Robles wine and event glass for 21 and older participants. Vina Robles will provide both lunch and wine. Additional lunches ($12) or wine ($6) will be available for purchase.

Register yourself and your dog now to participate in this annual event. Walkers or runners without dogs are welcome. Early registration is open now until May 2, when the registration fee will increase to $35 going into the morning of the event. Check-in and morning of registration begins at 9am on Saturday, May 4. The 2k and 4k courses will open at 10:00 am. For information or to register for the Dog Jog visit www.parks4pups.org or call 805.239.9326. The event will take place rain or shine.

All event proceeds benefit Sherwood Dog Park located in Paso Robles.

Sherwood Dog Park “Where Dogs Take Flight” opened in Paso Robles on April 2012 as a result of the grassroots efforts of a few hard-working community members with help from, Parks4Pups, a nonprofit organization. It is the only dog park in Paso Robles and is located at 290 Scott Street adjacent to the Senior Center.  Sherwood Dog Park is paid for from private donations, park day use and membership fees, and fundraisers such as the Dog Jog.

Parks4Pups also sponsors the popular annual Dog Splash Days event held at the Templeton Community Pool. The event takes place this year on September 7 and 8, 2019. At the 2018 event, 275 dogs participated to celebrate the end of summer with a swim in the shallow end of adult and tot pools.

Local dog trainers and therapists wearing wetsuits volunteer their time as dog “lifeguards” to assist dogs in entering and exiting the water. Dog life vests are available for dogs that are new to swimming. Pool toys such as rubber ducks, rubber bananas, and Frisbees are also available. Prepaid swim reservations are recommended as this event usually sells out. Reservations will open on June 1 for the 2019 event. Event proceeds benefit Vineyard Dog Park of Templeton. Reservations and event information are available at www.parks4pups.org.
