A professional pet photographer will also be on hand to take complimentary photos of dogs and owners.
"I think that this is a really great opportunity for people to get out with their dogs- there aren't very many events that allow you to actually participate with your dog, so that makes it unique and it's a great way to get out on the trails and enjoy it with a bunch of other people", said Arianne Whittaker, TART Trails Marketing Director.
