Bayou City Outdoors & REI Present:

Summertime Dogs 101 – hikes, health & happy paws

July 9, 2013

7:00 PM to 8:30 PM

REI - Houston (Galleria Area)

7538 Westheimer Rd
Houston, TX 77063

 

There is nothing better than having your best friend along on those summer time strolls, hikes and lakes trips.   


 

Join Bayou City Outdoors & REI as we explore all the places to take your dog to play in the summer and all the ways to keep them safe and healthy.


Our special guest for the evening is Dr. Linda Oliva - a graduate of Texas A&M University, who has practiced veterinary medicine (large animal and then small animal) in northwest Houston for 25 years.  We are also excited to say she is a BCO member! 


 

 

We’ll be talking about:  

· Where to take your dog in the summer

 · Pick up a detailed list of Dog Parks & Hiking trails that are dog friendly

· Learn about dog safety in the Houston summer and how to tell if your dog is overheating and heading for a problem (hint – it can happen VERY quickly)

 · How to fit your dog for a life jacket and how to determine if they need one.

· Fitting your dog for boots and learning when they need to be wearing them and when they shouldn''t.


 


Did you know that there are over 25 official dog parks in Houston and the surrounding areas? 

Dogs are allowed at most Houston and Texas State Parks but there are rules that you must follow to avoid a hefty fine! Did you also know that just like you your dog can get sunburned?  But, unlike you, they can’t cool their bodies by sweating.   Come get informed and keep your dog safe and happy in the summer!

 

7:00 pm, REI 7538 Westheimer Rd., Houston, TX 77063. For more information or to RSVP: http://www.BayouCityOutdoors.com / 713-524-3567 / kelly@bayoucityoutdoors.com Find us in the back of the store in the warehouse area.

FAQs

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Typically most BCO events are for adults.  But, we do love kids.  If you believe your child is capable of keeping up with the group, no problem.  AND if this is a bike ride they MUST wear a helmet.  Questions?  Contact us at info@bayoucityoutdoors.com 

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

We add parking details to the Event descriptions.

What can/can't I bring to the event?

If the temperature is above 80 or it very clearly says "No Dogs" then please don't bring your dog.  We LOVE dogs and only make this rule if we feel there could be a safety concern (for the dogs of course:).

BIKE: If it is a bike ride: Bring a helmet or borrow one from us.  Helmets are the single most important piece of gear you can have on a bike ride.  Anyway, any time you are wearing a helmet you must be having fun!  

Bring water.  Frequently our events are in the woods or out of the way.  Water is important.

HIKE: If it is a hiking event wear comfortable shoes.  Athletic shoes, hiking boots, running shoes, just be sure your feet will be happy.

SOCIAL: If it is a social event?  Wear whatever YOU feel comfortable in.  We are an eclectic mix of people with all types of interests and jobs.  People will come straight from work in a suit or jeans, straight from running or working out, and some of us even come cleaned up straight from the shower!  (and everything in between)

 

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Can I update my registration information?

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Printed ticket or download the EventBright app and bring it on your phone.

What is the refund policy?

Refunds up until 48 hours before.  Or, better yet, get some goodwill by sharing your ticket with a friend.  They will love you even more after all the fun they had at the BCO event!

 

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

Yes - see love & friendship above!
