Dog Jog

A benefit for the Paso Robles Sherwood Dog Park

After the jog, there will be live music by Wine Country Troubadours as you enjoy lunch, wine tasting and tour the event expo comprised of local, dog loving vendors and silent auction. Be sure to bring your lawn chair or blanket for the picnic area.

During lunch SLO DOG will be presenting a variety of Advanced Dog Skills including Agility and Obedience Demonstrations, as well as flyball and nose work.

About Sherwood Dog Park

Sherwood Dog Park “Where Dogs Take Flight” opened in Paso Robles April 2012 as a result of the grassroots efforts of a few hard-working community members with help from Parks4Pups, a nonprofit organization. It is the only dog park in Paso Robles and is located at 290 Scott Street adjacent to the Senior Center. Sherwood Dog Park is paid for from private donations, park day use, membership fees and fundraisers such as the Dog Jog.
