About the Schnauzer Walk
Clackamette Park in Oregon City, OR
The Schnauzer Walk is held the first Saturday in August each year just southeast of Portland, Oregon. It’s a fun affair chock full of all things Schnauzer! Bring yourself, a lawn chair, picnic lunch and of course your Schnauzer! We welcome Schnauzers of all sizes.
More information will be posted here as it becomes available. If you have questions, contact Buzzy Alfano at MiniShnzr@aol.com.
The registration fee for the walk includes a Schnauzer Walk t-shirt and participation in all demonstrations, contests and the walk itself. Confidence course, Barn Hunt, and Raffle are an additional fee which will be posted at the Walk.
We will have a Schedule of Events – with the times for each event posted at the Walk. Registration begins at 9:00 a.m. So, come early, and have a fun day.
