If dogs could read, Jack London would probably be their favorite author, and his Call of the Wild and White Fang their favorite books.

On July 17, 15 lucky dogs (and their humans) will have their day at Jack London State Historic Park at Walk’n Wag, a three-mile walk around Jack London’s Beauty Ranch and then down to the Wolf House with good sniffs, treats, and water along the way.

Participating dogs must be other-dogfriendly, people-friendly, on a short leash, and able to resist bolting if a critter crosses the trail.

Reservations are on a first-come basis at walk-wag2022/.

Tickets are $5 per dog (maximum of two dogs per party), in addition to the $10 per car entry fee.

The group will meet in the museum parking lot (on the left past the entrance kiosk) at 9:30 a.m. The walk will conclude at approximately 11:30 a.m. The event will be canceled in the event of heavy rain.

Jack London State Historic Park is a wildlife sanctuary; therefore dogs are only allowed in designated historic areas, including the Beauty Ranch area and on the trail to Wolf House — but not on any other trails. Dogs must be kept on leash at all times and are not allowed inside the historic buildings. Service animals specifically trained to aid a person with a disability are welcome.
