Learn the guidelines for bringing your dog to a public park in Trail Manners and Safety for Hiking with Your Dog presented by Willow Branch Doggie Daycare from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 18 in the Meadow Picnic Area.

In this interactive class, dog owners* will learn the basics of trail safety and manners for dogs. At Allerton and elsewhere, pets are expected to follow guidelines to not disturb wildlife or encroach on the lives of others. Many of these manners are based on the National Park Service’s BARK Ranger Program: “Bag your pet’s waste, Always leash your pet, Respect wildlife, Know where you can go.” In this class, instructor Jenna Tompkins will also cover safety, what to bring on walks, emergency supplies and common toxins and hazards that should be avoided on the trails.

$20/person. Register here by July 15. All sales are final.
