LI-DOG Pack Walk™ at Old Westbury Gardens’ Spring Dog Festival!
LI-DOG Spring 2019 Pack Walk
Saturday, April 15th, 11 AM to 12 PM
Old Westbury Gardens
71 Old Westbury Rd
Old Westbury, NY 11568
How to find us: Look for the blue LI-DOG tent!
On Saturday, April 15th at 11 a.m., please join LI-DOG as we spend a delightful hour on a guided tour of the beautiful, English-themed splendor of Old Westbury Gardens. There’ll be plenty of spring’s horticultural treasures for our eyes and our fur babies’ noses to enjoy!
Our walk is almost all on flat ground and there are opportunities to shorten the walk for those who wish to do so. Make sure to bring poop bags–as clean-up is a must! — and bring your camera as there are many beautiful photo opportunities on the grounds.
Our LI-DOG Pack Walk™ takes place during Old Westbury Gardens’ Spring Dog Festival. Make sure to stick around after the Pack Walk and enjoy the Festival with booths and exhibits from rescues, animal advocacy organizations including LI-DOG, and vendors of doggie goodies and gear. The Festival runs from 10 am to 6pm on the 15th, with the last ticket sold for 4pm on Sat.
On Sun., the 16th, Old Westbury Gardens will be welcoming your pup also–as part of their Dog-Friendly Weekend–with the same hours as Saturday, but no vendors will be present.
Please make sure to register for our LI-DOG Pack Walk™—it’s free! Registrants for the Pack Walk will have the opportunity to donate to LI-DOG for a chance to win a raffle basket full of doggie toys and treats. Proceeds support LI-DOG’s work to gain more access to public parks and beaches for Long Island dog owners and their dogs.
Dogs must be on-leash at all times when visiting the Gardens and are not allowed in any buildings on the grounds. Please no retractable leashes when on the Pack Walk as the dogs may become entangled. Dogs are also NOT allowed in the Walled Garden.
