HSFN Alumni Woof Pack Dog Walks

This is a free meet-up group for owners and their HSFN alumni pups who enjoy taking their dogs out to walk, run and romp at local dog-friendly places. Walking venues will range from easy to strenuous, with dogs either leashed or off-leash pending town leash laws and owner’s control. Detailed descriptions of the meet-ups will be posted so you can be sure the walk is appropriate for you and your dog. Learn more about this group on our page. You must sign an online waiver through and RSVP for the walk.
