The Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides is the largest event of its kind in Canada, held in over 300 locations with the Walk in Oakville being one of the largest in the country. It is a fun-filled 5k walk through Oakville. This is a great community event that includes the annual Walk as well as activities, a BBQ hosted by the Works and a raffle. So come join us as a team or individual, with or without a dog friend, all are welcome. A huge thank you goes out to everyone involved in the walk both past and present. Without the help from our community, donors and sponsors such as Lexus of Oakville, The Works, VIA Rail, Film.ca and so many more this event would not be possible.
Thanks to our sponsors, 100 per cent of the funds raised from the Walk go directly towards the raising, training and placement of Dog Guides for Canadians with medical or physical disabilities. Dog Guides Canada has already provided specially trained Dog Guides to more than 3,000 men, women and children, all without any government funding. With your help more people will experience the mobility, safety and independence a devoted Dog Guide brings.
