Are you ready to “PAWTEE”? Does Sunday brunch outside with your pup on a big patio with couches, tables with umbrellas, a big bar, delicious omelettes, French Toast, mimosas and Bloody Mary’s sound great? If it does, then join us for a Barkin’ Brunch with LI-DOG at The Refuge just off Route 110 in Melville!

Besides great food, there’ll be drink specials, dog treats, raffles, and more! Check out the human menu at The Refuge New Brunch Menu. There’s even a Doggie Menu with great selections for your pup!

Seating outside for brunch on the patio is limited, so it is suggested that if you want to sit at a table then call The Refuge at (631) 577-4444 to make a reservation. There is also an area on the patio for those just wanting to have a drink and mingle. Feel free to join us there.

This is a fund raising event to benefit LI-DOG – The Long Island Dog Owners Group. Please do take a chance at winning one of our great raffle baskets generously donated by our sponsors who believe in our cause—more access to Long Island beaches, parks, and other places for us and our dogs!

LI-DOG Pack Walk™ at Southards Pond Park!
Sat., Sept. 22nd, 10AM
Southards Pond Park
Park Ave., Babylon
(Google Map)

Please join LI-DOG for a Pack Walk™ at Southards Pond Park in Babylon. The park covers multiple acres of forested beauty, it’s full of friendly people and their four legged companions, and the trails are flat and easy.

Our September 2018 LI-DOG Pack Walk™ —a guided group on-leash dog walk–will follow the Southards Pond Park Loop trail, a 1.4 mile moderately trafficked loop trail. We’ll walk through the woods to the southern bank of the pond, and then walk along the pond and again enter the woods to return. Because of the Harmful Algal Blooms DO NOT ALLOW YOUR DOG TO GO IN THE WATER!

This Pack Walk will take one to 1-1/2 hours. Plus, feel free to linger after the Pack Walk as there are plenty of nice places in the park to hang out with your dog and other people from the walk. Dogs are NOT allowed in the picnic and playground areas of the park. The park is nestled between two neighborhoods so be considerate of the residents by minimizing the noise level and keeping the area clean. There are no trash receptacles along the walk, but there are one or two on the bridge by the pond.

DOGS MUST BE KEPT ON LEASH AT ALL TIMES WHILE IN THE PARK. Also, please no retractable leashes as we’ll be walking in a group and people and dogs can get easily tangled.

WEATHER RELATED CHANGES: Please check our Meetup or Facebook Group or our website on Sat. morning around 8:30 a.m. for any weather-related notices. If there is no notice, the Pack Walk is on!

PARKING: Park at Babylon Memorial Grade School on Park Ave. and walk across the bridge that connects the parking lot to the park. We will be on the park side of the bridge.

We look forward to seeing you and your dogs at LI-DOG’s Pack Walk™ at Southards Pond Park!

Edgewood Oak Brush Plains Preserve
Commack Rd., Deer Park, NY

Please note: We have changed the location of this Pack Walk™ to Southards Pond Park. Check out LI-DOG Pack Walk™ at Southards Pond Park for details. Please join LI-DOG for our first-ever Pack Walk™ at Edgewood-Oak Brush Plains Preserve in Deer Park! Edgewood-Oak Brush Plains is a state-owned, 843-acre nature preserve situated within the towns of Babylon, Huntington and Islip. It was the site of the former Edgewood State Hospital, which is long gone now.

The trails and paths in the preserve are ideal for hiking, biking, jogging, birding and, of course, dog walking! Old Commack Road, a paved 1.6- mile road that runs north-south and is now part of the preserve’s trail network is great for jogging and biking, especially for families with children. There are also many nice flat, pine needle-covered trails that are great for dog walking.

This LI-DOG Pack Walk™ —a guided group on-leash dog walk–will start at the gazebo near the parking lot. At the beginning and at the end of our walk we will be following a trail that runs in front of a model airplane flying field. Please be mindful of the planes. We will post more details on the trail we will be walking nearer the date of our actual walk.

Because parking at the Preserve is limited, we have to limit this LI-DOG Pack WalkTM to 40 people.
