Together we can walk the world

Join us in raising vital funds for animal charities in need by joining the World Big Dog Walk Challenge

WHAT IS THE WORLD BIG DOG WALK CHALLENGE?

Many of our animal charities are in crisis due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and we want to help! We’re challenging you and your pup to walk as much as possible during the month of September. Pledge the distance you’re planning on walking, donate and fundraise for the animal charity close to your heart.

We want to challenge our community of dog walkers to walk the circumference of the world (40,075km) together and help raise vital funds for charity.

DO I HAVE TO PAY TO JOIN IN?

The World Big Dog Walk is FREE to sign up to! You can sign up here.

WHY SIGN UP FOR THE WORLD BIG DOG WALK?

You can raise money for a struggling animal charity of your choosing, whilst going on adventures with your best friend in September. Join a community of dog lovers who are all taking part in the Virtual World Big Dog Walk. Track your progress alongside fellow walkers and attempt to walk around the world together!

HOW DO I SUBMIT MY MILES/KM WALKED?

On September 1st, you will be emailed a link to our pledging form, where you can submit the distance you are aiming to walk.

HOW DO I DONATE TO CHARITY?

You can donate to one of our partner charities via the JustGiving links below. We ask you to inform us how much you will be donating on our pledging form so we can track how much is being raised. You can also fundraise for a charity of your choosing by setting up your own JustGiving page. Here are some of our Fundraising Tips!

CAN I WALK ANYWHERE?

YES! The World Big Dog Walk is all about going on adventures with your dog whilst raising money for animal charities in crisis. You can choose to walk locally, or go on new adventures, all you need to do is pledge how far you’re aiming to walk in September!

CAN I TRACK THE TOTAL DISTANCE PLEDGED BY EVERYONE TAKING PART IN THE WORLD BIG DOG WALK?

Yes, each time a walker pledges their distance for September, our live map will walk our Pup ‘Pip’ the same distance, as Pip walks around the world with you all!

DO I HAVE TO BE BASED IN THE UK?

No! You do not need to be based in the UK to take part. Simply pledge your walking distance and walk local to you. It’s all about raising money for charity.

HOW DO YOU KNOW HOW FAR WE HAVE WALKED?

We trust you as a community of dog walkers to achieve your pledged distance.

I CAN'T TAKE PART IN WALKING, CAN I STILL DONATE/FUNDRAISE?

Yes! Donate and share the JustGiving pages on our website. You can also use the #WorldBigDogWalk to find other walkers unique JustGiving pages to donate and share them.

World Big Dog Walk Champion

''During these difficult times we have all felt such a comfort and reassurance from our loving pets and had time to enjoy all the creatures around us. I know my boys have been my purpose. So now more than ever we need to help the charities that care for them. Being unable to home their animals, not having the full staff they need or funds for utilities to care for them has been so difficult. Please help them and share some love if you can.''

“I am so excited about the World Big Dog Walk as it's a great way of bringing people together (safely) to share their love of dogs and to raise money for some brilliant charities. I'm raising money for Street Vet which offers help to homeless people with dogs.”
