Events & Activities
Fun and unique experiences for dogs and their people
We bring dogs and their people together for exercise, education, and socialization in a positive, welcoming, and fun environment.
We host around 120-150 in-person and online events every year. Monthly, you can participate in special events, official club walks, pop up walks, nature walks, hikes & hops, holiday activities, dog training events, and much more. Our events are only limited by our imaginations…and we have some pretty big ideas!
Types of events we host
Special Events usually occur every month to celebrate a holiday or other occasion such as Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Halloween, Christmas, Pet Appreciation Week, Independence Day Mexican Independence Day, and more.
Official Club Adventures are hosted monthly by our expert partners who lead an organized program during the outing (i.e. hiking preparedness, loose leash recall, canine fitness, sensory exploration, and more).
These adventures are part of a series of events that “pop up” on the calendar throughout the year. It gives members the opportunity to get out more and enjoy fresh air and friends.
We host Birding Adventures in the spring and winter in partnership with Kelly Dwyer, naturalist and owner of Nature Education Opportunities.
After a hike, we gather at a brewery to enjoy the local flavor.
We host Doggy Socials from April – October, twice a month at the Friendly Pets Dog Park in Lee, NH.
Pack Adventures take place on Thursdays from 3:00-5:00pm during the summer months and occasionally during the winter months depending on the weather.
