This is an opportunity for Frenchie's and their humans to get together for socialization and exercise. This is a new park without the gravel so it should be better for our pups.


Casual walk to stretch out the legs for both your and your pups after a long day at work (or snoozing in bed). This pack walk welcomes dogs with various temperaments including mild dog reactivity for you as an owner to work on advocating for your dog's space and boundaries while helping them build confidence around other dogs.

This Pack Walk is ~ 3.0 miles in length on a flat Paved Surface offering little shade, but drinking fountains in two places.

GSDs one year or younger are encouraged to turn around at the 1/2 mile mark to prevent damage to developing bones, joints and muscles of the pups!

Busy weekends or just want to get your pup out for a mid-week stroll with other small dogs? Join us for a short walk in the San Jose (Willow Glen) area.

The walk is simply a way for our dogs to warm up to one another and put their energy to good use. 

Calling all French Bulldog owners and lovers! Our group gives Frenchies a chance to play together, and gives their humans a chance to hang out and discuss all things Frenchie. If you own a Frenchie, want a Frenchie (who doesn't?), or have questions about the breed, this group is for you!
