Looking Back At Our First Group Dog Walk

This November, we held our first ever Me & My Pets group dog walk!

The day was held to raise money for the RSPCA East Norfolk Branch, and was also a fantastic opportunity to meet lots of wonderful people – and lots of wonderful dogs!

The walk took place at Whitlingham Country Park, Norwich, which is such a beautiful location. Part of the stunning Norfolk Broads, the lake is perfect for dog walking so we couldn’t resist holding the event there.

We gathered late morning near the visitor’s centre and all the dogs were super excited on the day.

The first 25 people received a Me & My Pets goody bag which contained a lead, a squeaky chew toy, a treat bag and some treats kindly donated by raw and raw-inspired dog food company, Nature’s Menu.

Following a short spell of rain in the morning, the weather turned out beautifully with bright blue skies and sunshine all the way.

After chatting and mingling, we were ready to set off around the lake. Altogether, there were around 120 people and 80 dogs which was such a fantastic turn out. All the dogs were really well-behaved and stayed on their leads the whole time – so thank you to all for helping us keep everyone safe.

The route around Whitlingham Lake is roughly 3.5km so just enough for everyone to get a good amount of exercise as well as a healthy dose of fresh air.

There were big dogs, small dogs, fluffy dogs and everyone in-between! Breeds included Labradors, collies, Dobermans, dachshunds, chihuahuas and golden retrievers, as well as some more unusual breeds such as Akitas, Shiba Inus and Samoyeds.

Instagram-famous dog and local celebrity, Dilbert the Corgi was there with his best buddy. And we’re keeping our fingers crossed he gave the day his official paw of approval!

After completing a lap of the lake, we gathered back at the visitor’s centre to draw the raffle. There were three prizes which included a large Me & My Pets dog bed, blanket and rope toy; a travel essentials assortment for keeping your dog safe in the car; and a feeding set which included a twin bowl, feeding mat and rope toy.

In total we raised £100 for the RSPCA East Norfolk Branch which is absolutely fantastic! The charity is home to a dedicated team of volunteers who look after animals who have suffered neglect, ill-treatment or are simply no longer wanted.

We’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone who allowed us to support this incredible cause and the fantastic work that they do.

Thank you also to Whitlingham Country Park for allowing us to host our event in such a beautiful location. And finally, a massive thank you goes out from us to everyone who came along with their dog to enjoy the day! You all made it really special and we couldn’t have done it without you.

We’ve taken scores of stunning pictures of you and your dogs, so don’t forget to head over to our Facebook page @meandmypetsofficial to view the whole gallery, as well as share some of your favourites!

See you next time!
