I Stand With My Pack - Community Pack Walk Program

Community and connection has never been more important than it is now.

According to the World Health Organization, the COVID-19 pandemic triggered a 25% increase in the prevalence of anxiety and depression worldwide. We know that having a like-minded community of people provides a sense of support and belonging that is essential to human mental health. We also know that spending time around dogs reduces stress and feelings of depression and anxiety.

The ISWMP Community Pack Walk Program was born out of the desire to find a way to connect people and dogs in order to provide community and an opportunity for connection between like-minded, dog loving people!

ISWMP’s Pack Walks take place once a month in varied locations across the Greater Los Angeles area. These walks provide not only community, but also physical exercise, time outdoors, and opportunities for learning – all of which are beneficial to human mental health. Of course, our dogs reap the rewards of exercise, stimulation, socialization, and bonding with their owners as well.

We are excited to see our Community Pack Walk Program growing, and to see the connections and relationships forming between our human and canine friends. The smiles on the faces of the people and dogs who attend these Pack Walks is evidence enough that we are on the right track.
