Dog Walking Club

Peninsula Pups Dog Walking Club

Enriching the lives of dogs and their humans one walk at a time.

Peninsula Pups

A Community Outreach Program of Critter Sitters and More!

The goal of the Dog Walking Club is to bring dog lovers together in a community atmosphere for exercise, fresh air and to meet new friends. This club is all about dogs and owners having a relaxed and enjoyable walk.

Every month, we host walks, hikes and other outings for dog lovers. In our Facebook Group, we discuss important topics with our expert partners that help dog owners make decisions about the care and welfare of their dogs. Club members are offered a supportive and encouraging environment where they can find resources, ask questions and participate in important discussions about pet care.

Membership is free, however, we ask for a suggested donation of $5 at events to help support our charitable partners.

We are committed to providing an inclusive environment for all, regardless of gender, age, gender identity, race, health status, national origin, relationship status, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and religion
