What is
Pawgust?

At Guide Dogs, we're all about keeping our dogs healthy and happy! That's why we want you to be part of PAWGUST 2020 to help encourage Australia to get active with their dogs and raise funds for a vital cause.

PAWGUST is a fun yet challenging event that encourages people and their pooches to walk 30 minutes a day for 30 days during August. That’s roughly 2km per day, which is no small feat in winter weather!

By sharing your challenge journey, and asking family and friends for donations of supPAWt, you will be directly impacting the lives of Guide Dog puppies in training. 

PAWGUST is the PAWfect excuse to get active and spend some quality time with your dog, while raising funds and supPAWting a worthy cause.

Don’t have a dog? Don’t worry! You can still get involved in PAWGUST 2020 by doing your 30 minute walk per day on your own or with your human best mate!

The best thing about this challenge is that you can do it whenever you want to. Walk morning, noon or night; whatever suits you best! Read some of our Walking Tips here!
