Dogs Unite for Guide Dogs

Sunday 23rd April

Sunday 23rd April

Guide Dogs is calling on dog owners to make their pet pooch a hero for the day by taking part in Dogs Unite!

Did you know that dog walkers spend more than 382 hours walking their pets every year? Dogs Unite is a series of sponsored dog walks taking place around the country to help Guide Dogs raise money to create more life-changing guide dog partnerships.

The Dogs Unite event at Jinney Ring promises fantastic fun for all the family and their pet, who can dress up in a special hero cape!

How to Take Part

Arrive at the Jinney Ring and join the Guide Dogs for the Blind fund raising walk event.
Start from the craft centre gardens at anytime between 11am and 2pm on Sunday 23rd April.

Ideally bring a dog -- your own, or perhaps borrow one you know loves a walk. Toy dogs are also allowed (and don't pull as much on the lead!) All the family are welcome and you can still join in even if you don't have a dog.

All walkers (not just those with dogs) need to register to take part in the event. You can do so by filling in a Registration Card on the day at Jinney Ring.

Please click here if you would like to download a sponsor form.

Choose a walk that suits your fitness, stamina and time frames. There will be three walks to choose from which are described below.

On completing their walk, each dog will receive a certificate and dog tag to wear proudly on their collar as a thank you for their support.
Details of the Walk

Details of the Walk

Walk 1 is for children, young puppies and those who prefer a short walk - this will be about 1/2 mile.

Walk 2 is a medium walk and is about 3 miles in length. It is easy to moderate with only a very limited number styles to climb, (if any at all.)

Walk 3 is about 6.5 miles and follows the route of the Hanbury Circular Walk (for more details see 'Local Walks' section of this website). This takes you through woodland, parkland and alongside the canal.
