Introducing Weekly Pack Walks

The behavior and enrichment team at APA is pleased to announce a new public program for the dogs of APA, Pack Walks.

Pack walks will be a part of our enrichment program and will happen once a week at each location, weather permitting.

  • APA Brentwood: Mondays from 1:00pm until 2:30pm
  • APA Olivette: Wednesdays from 11:00am until 12:30pm

Why pack walks? Pack walks are a vital enrichment tool for many different reasons! They help dogs by expelling pent-up energy, exploring and acclimating to new experiences, learning how to walk politely alongside other dogs, getting one-on-one time with a new person, safely walking on a sidewalk, and using their nose to explore the world around them. What started as a volunteer-focused part of our enrichment program has been opened up to the public! Want to help a dog to learn life-saving skills, get some time out of the shelter and make a difference for a furry friend? Then sign up below! We are currently limiting this opportunity to 5 to 10 people per pack walk, so if we are full this week, we might need more hands for the next one! The dogs will be pre-selected and matched with handlers based on experience level.
