The NH Dog Walking Club, which launched in December 2018, is a community outreach effort of It Takes a Village Pet Care located in Barrington, NH.
The Club, which currently has nearly 1,000 members from NH, ME, MA and CT, brings dog lovers together for exercise, education, and socialization. Monthly walks are hosted by industry experts who speak on several topics. In addition, the Club supports three NH pet industry nonprofits annually by raising awareness and funds for their organizations.
Membership is free, however, we ask for a suggested donation of $5 at events to help support our charitable partners.
Every month, we host walks, hikes and other outings for dog lovers. In our Facebook Group, we discuss important topics with our expert partners that help dog owners make decisions about the care and welfare of their dogs. Club members are offered a supportive and encouraging environment where they can find resources, ask questions and participate in important discussions about pet care.
