Walk-My-Dog Program - Animal Hospital

at Auburn Hills

 Animal Hospital at Auburn Hills Walk-My-Dog Program Good Neighbor Early Start in 2020


Safe, fun, outdoor activity while still social distancing


As a good neighbor during this Covid-19 Pandemic, we are launching our free Walk-My-Dog Program 2 months early. 

What is the Walk-My-Dog Program?

It's simple, fun & good for you. The concept is similar to a library's summer reading program but instead of reading books, participants are walking miles with their dogs.

Walk your own dog(s) on your own schedule & on your own route to win prizes.

Since schools are out & many of us are now working from home, we are launching in April instead of June.

Why do it?

Fear & anxiety are at an all-time high. Getting outdoors & walking your dog decreases anxiety & increases your bond even while social distancing.

Studies show that folks who have a training partner are more likely to stay motivated and fit - and that is especially true if your training partner is a dog!

Pull out the leash and the tail is wagging - how can you say no?

 

“A dog is one of the remaining reasons why some people can be persuaded to go for a walk.”
-- O.A. Battista
