Grey Face Rescue is hosting weekly pack walks starting at our Grey Face Rescue facility in St. Cloud and we will walk Lake Wobegon trail towards Rivers Edge Park and back.
We ask Pack Walk Attendees to register for Pack Walks. You are only required to register once and it will transfer to each week if you attend or not. Join us for one walk or all - we would love to have you and your pup join us!

We will be walking every Saturday in September and October from 9:00 am - 11:00 am.
September 7, 14, 21, 28

Walk will begin at promptly 9:15 am.
Coffee, water and pastries available directly following pack walk (first come, first serve).
What’s the fee?
This is a free event although we do ask for a goodwill donation to help cover the costs of coffee, water, and pastries.
Who Can Participate?
Even people without dogs!
Where Does it Happen?
Starting point is at Grey Face Rescue (7316 Ridgewood Road - St. Cloud).
We will walk Lake Wobegon Trailheads towards Rivers Edge Park.
All walks are between 2-3 miles
What are the Rules?
There shall be no nipping, snapping, lunging, growling or strong staring at other dogs. We do welcome dogs with dog aggression but we ask that they wear a RED Bandanna and walk a safe distance away from the pack. At the discretion of the person leading the walk the dog and owner may be asked to leave. (Please do not allow your dog to intrude upon the space of a RED Bandanna Dog.) In some cases a dog may have to wear a muzzle to participate.
Dogs must be on a 6 foot leash. No flex or retractable leashes. These leashes are great for wide open areas like beaches or woods but NOT when you're walking with a pack of dogs.
Limit nose sniffing at the beginning of the dog walk. Many dogs don't like their space invaded and this time is better spent getting your dog under control. After the walk when the dogs are tired is a better time to meet and greet.
Always carry clean-up bags and plenty of water for you and your dog(s)
We'd like to say that the most important thing concerning the dog walks is safety and for you to be your dog's pack leader.
