SociaBulls: On Water Breaks

While SociaBulls is a dogwalking group, most of the photos we show of our walk are not us actually walking:
 Mid-way through our walk, we always stop to refuel for a water break. While it's especially important and our breaks have been longer during the summer, this is something we even did during our chilly winter walks
because it became something more than just drinking water..
It became a time for the pooches to actually rest and hang out with their people. Beyond the physical stimulation of the walks, walking with the group is mental exercise that can be tiring as well. When stopped we do make sure the pooches are focused on us to limit the excitement, but it's always fun to see all the pooches hanging out with their people:
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.  

Please Note: As the weather has warmed up, bikers, runners, dogs, and kids have come out in full force in many of the areas that we walk. While we had previously been introducing new members a few at a time to each walk, we've decided that in order to continue to keep our group safe and make our walks a positive experience for everyone, we are putting new members "on hold" for the summer. You can still submit an application, and it will go on our wait list in the order it is received. Once things quiet down a bit more in the fall, we will resume introducing new members a few at a time to each walk, and will be contacting people on the wait list in a first-come, first-served manner.

We don't think you walk. We think you just hang out. BOL
