Hop-Dogs: Public Dog Friendly Walk every First Friday

Republic Bank First Friday Hop will be rolling out the red carpet for our four-legged friends every First Friday with a community dog walking group.

Dog Walking and socializing in Louisville on First Friday

Join us as we walk the Hop with our furry friends. Meet up with other dog lovers and their furry baby friends at 6:00 pm at the corner of Market and Clay street in front of Garage Bar. Self-Guided walk to begin at 6:15 with a one-mile stroll (from 600 E Main to 900 E Main and back) or a 5-mile urban hike option (from 600 E Main to 900 W Main and back). Both options run in a loop and return to Garage Bar for drinks and dog friendly outdoor dinner. Street parking is free at meters after 6pm and garage parking is also available.

Doggy Bones, water and puppy kisses available at select participating member locations.

Participating puppies and adult fur missiles need to be dog-friendly and safe around other dogs, animals, and children. Please be considerate and follow all Louisville leash and pet laws. Doggies make doodies, please be sure to have a bag in your pocket just in case so if your muppet makes a pooper it can be dropped in a waste bin.
