Walks, jogs and runs have become popular fundraising trends over the past few years. The growing trend includes animals, with Humane Societies and other Animal Rescue agencies hosting walks or runs to raise money.
Garmin has released a new tracking system that allows users to share their dog walk/run information with others. The GTU 10 provides real-time tracking and is ideal for young children, the elderly and of course your beloved pet. The small, portable tracking device can easily attach to your pets' collar, allowing owners to find a cat or dog that strays from home. By signing in to your Garmin account, friends can follow your dog walk/run progress online.
Here are some upcoming dog walks across North America:
