Miami Dog-Friendly Events in December

Join us for three Miami dog-friendly events in December!

We believe the best month for Miami dog-friendly events is December (and January isn’t bad, either!). The weather is gorgeous, the dogs are happy, and the mosquitoes are gone, so let’s take advantage of it!

Dog-friendly pack walk in South Miami

Join us and other like-minded dog lovers as we go on our monthly pack walk in South Miami. The whole family is welcome to attend. We will be meeting promptly at 9 AM in front of Town Kitchen and Bar!

We’ll walk for an hour into the beautiful adjacent neighborhoods and then return to our starting point where water bowls will be waiting for our doggies. Pack walks are a great opportunity to enjoy the weather, spend time with your dog, and a good way to provide essential exercise. This walk is also appropriate for dogs who are recovered reactive rovers. Town is dog-friendly as long as you eat outdoors- you can choose to stay for a delicious brunch after (we love their avocado toast and we’re not ashamed to say it).

When: Sunday, December 2, 2018
Time: 9-10 AM


Where: Town Kitchen and Bar- we meet by the manatee across from Town.
7301 SW 57 CT
South Miami, FL 33143

Invite your friends to this dog-friendly walk via Facebook.

Bring Your Dog to a SoMi Pack Walk!

Is your dog overweight? Could he or she use new dog friends and fun? Then join us on our first pack walk of the year on April 26, bright and early at 8:00 a.m. Let’s soak up a little vitamin D and then get our exercise in safely under the shady trees in South Miami!

As professional dog walkers, we believe exercise is incredibly important for your dogs’ health and ours, and that it can and should be fun. So why not be sociable while getting in shape? That’s why we joined with Medifast in Suniland to promote health and wellness for both dogs and dog parents.

Presenting Monthly Dog Pack Walks in Miami

Our South Miami pack walk will start out at South Miami Animal Clinic, conveniently located on US1 by Sunset Place. We’ll have a weigh-in for your pups at Dr. Maria Oliveira’s office, as well as a tent with our sign-in sheets, waivers, refreshments, and treats for both pets and pet parents. Well-behaved, socialized dogs are welcome!

*Dogs must be up to date with all of their vaccines and shots and present rabies tags.*

The purpose of the weigh-in and the walk is to get a baseline reading of your pup’s fitness level and to start you and your furkids on an exercise program. We will be hosting these pack walks monthly, and of course, will always be available to continue the walks for you during the week if you see your dog loves the exercise (and most of them do).

Enter Our Raffle for Great Prizes: Not only will you benefit from the exercise, you could also win several prizes from our raffle. The lucky winners will come away with either:

  • a 1 month membership to Equinox
  • a 1 week weight loss trial of Medifast
  • a gift card for pet sitting services with Equipaws Pet Services

South Miami Pack Walk Details: We will have refreshments available for you and your dogs, as well as goody bags with dog treats donated by local pet store Pet’s Best (which offers excellent organic dog and cat food). Make sure to bring your dog on a short lead; no retractable leashes, please! They are a danger to your dog, yourself, and your pack walk buddies. We will have biodegradable doggy poop bags, but feel free to bring your own!

Basic Rules:
– Rabies tags & current vaccines a must.
– No retractable leashes!
– 5-6 ft. leashes, please!
– One dog per handler!
