Until four years ago there had NEVER been a dog allowed in the San Diego Botanic Garden (SDBG) in Encinitas. Then came the first-ever 5K Paw Walk in the Garden benefiting your Rancho Coastal Humane Society and SDBG. More than 350 people with dogs put their best paws forward to support these two landmark organizations.
To mark the 5th Annual 5K Paw Walk in the Garden, we are taking this event to the next level!
There will be pet products, food (for people), treats (for dogs), valuable information for dog lovers, a pet first aid station, and (of course) dogs! Afterward walkers will have full access to San Diego Botanic Garden until 2:00.
Walkers have the option of covering the full 5 kilometer / 3.1 mile course, but there are lots of options. It’s not competitive. You don’t even need a dog. You can go for speed and span…or enjoy the scenery and serenity of the gardens.
And back by popular demand, please join us during the Peanut Butter/Cream Cheese Challenge!
There aren’t a lot of rules, but here are the main ones:
* Dogs must be kept on leash at all times.
* No leashes longer than 6 feet (including retractable leashes.)
* No dogs in heat.
* It’s up to you to clean up after your dog.
* Limit two dogs per person.
* Dogs must be up to date on vaccinations.
DON’T MISS OUT ON THIS GREAT EVENT AND REGISTER NOW BEFORE IT SELLS OUT!
