Meet at 9.45am for a 10.00am start
See flyer for full details.
There is logging in Woodhill Forest & not the best for walking so have changed to Karioitahi Beach for this walk.
For anyone who hasn’t joined us for our walks before this is a happy social occasion for dogs and owners. We are happy for non-Labrador people to join us as long as their dogs are sociable and are under reasonable control. We will meet at the carpark near the Surf Lifesaving control rooms at Karioitahi beach. Dogs MUST be on a lead until we are away from the carpark area but after that they are free.
Our walks are not suitable for dogs under 10 months old as it can be too demanding on young ones and they can get pushed around by the older dogs. We usually walk for about two hours and quite often find a nice cafe afterwards for a reviving coffee.
We walk whatever the weather so suitable clothing should be worn. Being on the beach shoes are optional but it pays to bring towels for yourselves and the dogs. It might pay to bring a fresh water drink for the dogs as they sometimes over do the salt water drinks. However there are fresh water streams along the beach where they can drink.

South of Auckland head for Waiuku along the Glenbrook Waiuku Road. When you reach Waiuku turn right into King Street and fairly quickly turn left into Constable Road. This road becomes Karioitahi Road which you follow until you reach the beach. The last stages are down a pretty steep hill and at the bottom you swing left into the carpark area.
We are always looking for new places to go to for our Club walks. If you know of
any please tell me (Sally, see number above) or anyone on the Committee. They need to be areas where dogs can be safely off lead and with no worries of stock which could be upset.
