Social group walks

Let us guide you

Canberra Dog Walks leads social group walks every weekend for people who enjoy some company and don't want to be bothered interpreting directions or following a map.

All walkers are welcome, with or without dogs. We run these on a not-for-profit basis for only $5 cash per adult or $5.20 for card payments. Children and dogs walk free.

Information about upcoming social group walks is posted on Canberra Dog Walks Meetup and on our Facebook page. If you join our Meetup group you'll get automatic notifications about all scheduled walks; joining is free.

We aim to provide an enjoyable and relaxed experience for both people and dogs. Generally our group walks:

  • last between 1 and 2 hours (3-6 km)
  • provide one or more optional off leash opportunities
  • start and end at a dog friendly café
  • follow a loop with minimal retracing of steps
  • feature interesting stuff for humans too such as beautiful views, quirky sculptures or historic buildings

If you'd prefer your own private individual or group guided walk, we can also provide walks tailored to your needs for a fee. Use our contact form to make an enquiry.

Lovely group of people, friendly dogs and very well organised. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the dog even more so.

Leonardo is a changed dog. He is very confident in shared spaces these days.

Decided to walk on the spur of the moment and the whole process was easy. Lovely bunch of walkers and dogs. CDW made sure everyone was safe and had a great time.

Extremely pleasant Saturday afternoon amble. A nice way to learn about new places (esp. for someone who moved here recently) and a great social event for the dogs. Dogs boundaries are respected! Recommended.

Leadership is exceptional. No one is ever left behind or made to feel slow. CDW takes a very caring attitude to the dogs ensuring that even the most unsure dogs are made to feel safe.

This group is great for relaxing not only the pups but also their hoomans. The team do fantastic background work to ensure that we all enjoy the experience of exploring Canberra in a friendly and safe environment.
