May 2020 - date coming soon

Calling all dogs, big and small... it's time to grab your lead and help pets in need!

We invite you and your doggie friends to take part in Bath's biggest dog walk of the year, the Wag Walk. Join us for a wooftastic walk across the beautiful Bath countryside, starting and finishing at Bath Cats & Dogs Home.

You'll get your very own Wag Walk doggie bandana to wear on the day, you'll meet lots of new doggie friends on the way round, you'll receive a tote bag filled with celebratory treats once you've finished the walk, and best of all you'll be helping rescue dogs needing care at Bath Cats & Dogs Home.


The details

  • Wag Walk starts and finishes at Bath Cats & Dogs Home on our Event Field, access from Claverton Down Road. Click here for map and directions. Sign in is from 8.45am, the walk starts at 9.30am with staggered groups starts every 5 minutes for safety.

  • Cost is £15 for your dog plus a small online processing fee. Human companions go for free*. If you are entering more than one dog then it is £15 for the first dog, and £5 thereafter for each dog taking part.

  • Option to take part for sponsorship to help even more dogs in need. Set your own sponsorship target - every pound raised will make a difference!

  • Two routes to choose from - a 2 mile flat route for young or old paws, or the 5 mile route for a bigger challenge.

* signing up without a a dog: There is a small £5 fee for humans registering without a dog in their group. This is to cover the cost of resources for the Wag Walk.


The entry fee covers the cost of administration and resources for the Wag Walk. To help rescue dogs even more why not get your dog to raise sponsorship? We will send them their own personalised sponsor form to take round to their doggie friends - every pound they raise will make a real difference to a rescue dog's life.

Sponsorship will pay for essential items during an dog's stay with us - like nutritious food, warm cosy bedding, toys for playtime and expert care from our team of trained and compassionate animal carers.

The dog that raises the most sponsorship money will receive a hamper full of delicious treats and toys.
