Pack Walk Club struts through New Town on Sundays

The Nautical Dog located in New Town Commercial Association houses a pet market, dog wash and cat cove. The cat cove and dog wash are located adjacent to the main store front with windows and peep holes to see the multitude of cats up for adoption and plenty of room to bring in your furry friends, no appointment needed.

Whether it be a quick stop, or a water or potty break, the walk is completely at you and your dog’s pace. Energized dogs of all sizes took a pause in the shade as the summer heat came rolling in; although, that will not stop the Pack Walk Club from meeting.Frankie, the 4-year-old rescue, and his new pal head back up to the streets of New Town from the shaded gravel paths of Charlotte Park.
