This event runs itself, which is the most successful outcome imaginable. There's no leader, just the guidelines (2nd button above) that have kept the event problem-free for years.
My name is James. I started this event for my beloved dog Jesse when she was 2 years old in 2006. She was extremely athletic and social, but her fear of some large dogs often thwarted her fun and exercise. I organized a few small dog groups prior to this one, from which I learned what would work. This group has sure proven to work well for many thousands of dogs and people.
THIS EVENT BELONGS TO YOU & YOUR DOGS
While I'm very proud to have created this, it is now YOUR event. From July 2006 until sometime in 2009 I maintained a "leader" role, and I attended the walk almost every week, even when Jesse was seriously ill. Now I rarely attend, Jesse has slowed down considerably in her senior years, and when we come we just blend into the crowd.
If you decide to attend, please help uphold the guidelines that have successfully kept this event alive. Many dogs and people benefit in many ways, and it is up to every individual there to keep it safe and enjoyable for everybody.
We wish you and your dogs many years of continued happiness and beach walking.
James & Jesse
