SociaBulls: On Group Size

Since our group has grown so much, so many of our posts have been focusing on how we're learning to work with our large group.
At the same time, between the summer heat and many members away for vacations and weddings, we've been having some smaller more intimate walks which have been just as beneficial.
Even with a handful of pups, our pooches are still getting the socialization and mental exercise of naturally walking with their peers. 
We know a lot of people who wish they had a similar group in their own city, and maybe they feel overwhelmed by trying to find a large group of people and even managing a large group, but this really helped us remember that it doesn't need to be about size, but even 2 pups walking together can be just as valuable.

Join our Chicago SociaBulls  Facebook page for more photos and information about group walks. And check out the Hikabulls page where we first learned about the benefits of group walking.

We are still looking for winner Lisa Marie & Milo to please contact us about winning the Ruffwear  Swamp Cooler Vest Giveaway. If anyone knows them, please tell them to contact us. If we do not hear from them by Wednesday, we unfortunately will need to draw another winner. Thanks!

While I hope that we will continue to grow and help other pups and their people, we are a small group with usually 8-10 dogs each week! I always feel like we should strive to be bigger, but the truth is that walking with our small group is still proving beneficial to our pooches!

Thanks for the reminder that our group is perfect just the way it is!
