FAQs

What is Walk My Dog?

Walk My Dog is a program that invites the community to walk their dog, track their miles through our portal, and win prizes for doing so! We want to encourage our community to exercise their pups (and themselves!) to benefit their physical and mental health, while getting to know their neighborhood.

Who can participate?

Everyone and anyone with their pup!

When does it start?

It will start Sunday, May 1, 2022 and go through June 30, 2022.

How do I track and log my mileage?

You can use any tool you like, from activity apps, iPhone step trackers, or old-fashioned mapping. You can log your miles by following this link, which also can be found above. You will be asked your name and email, the week, and the number of miles. This is all based on an "honor system," and it is up to you to submit them accurately.

What're the prizes?

You can find the list of prizes here! We will be gifting various items from Sploot for prizes based on mileage, and our partnered local businesses will be gifting their own items/services based on weekly challenge participation.

What are the weekly challenges?

Weekly challenges are presented by our partners weekly, and will be announced via social media every week. Make sure to stay on the lookout every Sunday in the months of May and June for the next one! Check our Instagram here.

Does it cost anything?

Nope! This is a completely free event put on by Sploot Veterinary Clinic and our partners.

Do I need to complete my miles with a dog?

Yes! The goal is to encourage our community to get active with our canine friends. If you don't have a pup of your own, find a friend that does, or reach out to a local shelter or rescue to inquire about walking a few adoptable pups!

Do I need to run?

Not if you don't want to! Any mile counts - a meander, walk, jog, run, jaunt are all amazing.

How long do I have to complete the challenge?

You have two months to complete the challenge! There is no set amount of miles needed to participate, just as many as you can in the months of May and June.

If I have more than one dog, can I get double the miles for them?

Unfortunately, you cannot "double" your miles with two pups, although we are very impressed you are walking them both at the same time! If, however, you are walking them separately, then yes, those count as two separate walks.
