The organisers of the Big Dog Walk series have announced the 2020 Virtual Dog Walk.

The World Big Dog Walk Challenge will take place in September 2020 and aims to raise thousands of pounds for dog-related charities.

Dog Walkers are encouraged to walk a certain distance during the month of September, whether that is in a field near their home or around the block on their regular walk with their dog.

Dog walkers can make pledges to walk a certain distance or raise a target amount for one of the many canine charities featured on the website, or a charity of their choice, such as Pets as Therapy, Mayhew or Streetvet.

It is free to get involved and all money raised will go directly to charities that support dogs in need!

Organisers are aiming for people to walk a total of 40,075km, the circumference of the Earth by encouraging dog walkers to get out in to the fresh air and clock up the miles!

Once the miles start clocking up, Pip, the walk’s Virtual Dog, will start his journey around the world map, with the aim to lap the entire world once.

Nicole Cooper, Managing Director of the Big Dog Walk series says “Dog charities have been suffering throughout this world heath crisis and so we are asking our pawsome dog walking community to get out and about in their own environment.

Should that be in a field near your house or even around the block on your regular walkies, pledge a distance you and your pup will walk during the month of September to raise money for the dogs we all love.”
