The Great Dog Walk Together is launching a new project in time for National Walk Your Dog Day on Friday, 22 February. The project, called ‘Pooch and Munch’, will combine dog walks with a trip to the local pub. The dog walks will start and end at a pub, with the opportunity to stay for lunch.
The aim is to find more ways for people to meet up and enjoy the company of others to promote well being. Small groups of local people can get together enjoy some exercise and most importantly look after their pooches. The walks will be suitable to all ages and abilities, and welcoming of those without dogs too.
Elaine Brown, spokesperson for Great Dog Walk Together, said: “These walks can take place at any time during the year and don’t need to start on February 22. It’s a great chance to get out, meet others and start a conversation.”
The Great Dog Walk Together is encouraging local pubs to get involved. By allotting a fixed date, i.e. the first Tuesday of every month, they charge that the project is easy to get going and will provide business during otherwise quiet trading times.
The Great Dog Walk Together initiative is a free place to post and share dog walks, Users can share details of their dog walks to get published on the website and encourage more participants.
The initiative has been created by In Your Dog House, a marketplace that brings together Great British designers of high quality dog themed products. They donate all their profits towards finding ways for more people to enjoy the company of dogs to promote wellbeing.
For those looking to get involved, the project can provide posters, A5 flyers and social media posts. For further information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
