What is
Pawgust?

At Guide Dogs, we’re all about keeping our dogs healthy and happy, so we want you to be part of PAWGUST 2019 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 with family and friends and reaching out to collect donations of supPAWt, you will be directly impacting on the lives of Guide Dog puppies-in-training. These special puppies are also on a journey and one day will help support someone in your local community living with vision loss or blindness.

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 2019 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!

How it Works



Register you & your dog.
It’s free!



Take the lead with your FUN-draising by donating to yourself and then bark it aloud asking for donations from far and wide! Your PAWGUST Pack, including the all imPAWtant PAWdometer, will also arrive shortly.



From 1 – 30 August, walk 30 minutes a day and ask for donations of supPAWt to help raise vital funds for Guide Dogs puppies-in-training.

Make a
Difference

By participating in PAWGUST you will improve the health and wellbeing of yourself and your dog.

Not only will your dog love you for all the extra walks, you’ll feel great knowing that you are changing lives. Your support will give our puppies the best start in their journey to becoming Guide Dogs or Assistance Dogs.
