PASO ROBLES — You and your furry, four-legged friends are invited to join Sherwood Dog Park volunteers on a 2k or 4k jog or walk through the Vina Robles vineyard at the 11th annual Dog Jog on Saturday, May 4. After the jog, listen to live music as you enjoy lunch, wine tasting and tour the event expo comprised of local, dog loving vendors, silent auction and dog contests. Participation in this fundraiser is a great way to “actively” help support the ongoing maintenance and improvements for the Sherwood Dog Park located in Paso Robles. Registration for this event is already open.
“What a splendid way to spend time with your dog while jogging through the vineyards at beautiful Vina Robles winery,” says Larry Miller, Sherwood Dog Park’s board president. “The event is filled with activities for the whole family to enjoy. It’s an opportunity to come together as a community, have some fun with your pet and support your local dog park.”
An early registration fee of $30, includes 2k or 4k walk, jog, or run, commemorative dog bandana, goody bag, finisher’s medal, a voucher for lunch and a glass of Vina Robles wine and event glass for 21 and older participants. Vina Robles will be providing both lunch and wine. Additional lunches at $12 or wine for $6 will be available for purchase.

Sherwood Dog Park “Where Dogs Take Flight” opened in Paso Robles on April 2012 as a result of the grassroots efforts of a few hard-working community members with help from, Parks4Pups, a nonprofit organization. It is the only dog park in Paso Robles and is located at 290 Scott Street adjacent to the Senior Center. Sherwood Dog Park is paid for from private donations, park day use and membership fees, and fundraisers such as the Dog Jog.
