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 St. John United Church of Christ. Walk to begin promptly at 6:15 with a one-mile stroll or a 5-mile urban hike option. Both options run in a loop and there is street and garage parking near St. John Church.

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

Participating puppies 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 doodle it can be dropped in a waste bin.

  • Merle’s Whiskey Kitchen, West Main Street
