General Information
 
There are several walking groups within U3A but none allow dogs except this one – which actively encourages them. The purpose of the group is for dog owners and dog lovers (you don’t necessarily need to own a dog) to walk their dogs in a group setting, allowing both dogs and humans to socialize and exercise at the same time.
 
We meet on the 4th Tuesday of the month with a break during the hot months of July and August. We vary our start time to suit the temperature at the time of year.  Walk lengths vary but are generally between 1 and 2 hours with a coffee stop to rest dogs and people during the walk, if there is a dog friendly café on route. If not we have coffee at the end of the walk. Generally, walks are arranged in locations where it is safe to allow the dogs off-leash for most of the route.
 
All members of the group are expected to take responsibility for their own dogs, which includes clearing up after them and controlling them, both on and off leash. All dogs must be up to date with required vaccinations (once a year for Rabies and MH/L) and vaccination records must be presented on the initial walk and subsequently on vaccination renewal.
 
Recent walks have included the forests near Calonge, Callella, Palau Sator, Pals and Solius, the coastal walk from La Fosca to Platja Castel and we have also been the doggie water park near Barcelona.
