OCT 2018 – Time for the Redlands Dog Jog 2018 by Charley

Hey my furry friends it’s time for the Redlands Dog Jog 2018

By, Charley

 The Redlands Chamber is once again hosting a 5K Dog Jog and it’s about time we four legged fur friends got the attention we deserve. Last year the Dog Jog was a huge success hundreds of my friends came out to run, (walk, stroll, and some wagon riders) a 5K course in an event just for us! Bravo!

All shapes and sizes showed up and we had such a good time we are doing it again. Saturday, November 3rd, at 9:00 AM starting in Sylvan Park.

We start in the park then make our way through the University campus heading east then a couple of miles later we circle back to the park where we get our official 2018 Redlands Dog Jog Tag. We also get our own bandana with the logo on it… just like the T-shirts our human buddies will get.

This year my pals have added all kinds of fun to the Dog Jog. First there is going to be a costume contest…. Yep we can all get dressed up in our very finest and be judged in all our glory! Even the mayor will be there for this part of the day.

Then we have experts in Agility training showing us what we can do if we really put our minds to it… and obedience training, demonstrations from therapy dog organizations, canine first aide and even an canine massage booth. It’s going to be such a fun day for all of us.

The event is sponsored by Alta Vista Credit Union, Barich & Associates, SCE, Allstate Ins., Pacific Specialties Ins., Storage West, and Office Solutions. Tell your peeps to use these businesses for services, they are the best!
