Our next Bully Walk is this Sunday, March 6 at 11am. We are meeting in Jamison Square in the Pearl District near the iron bears. (If you have not been there, there are these crazy iron bears in the park...dont really know why...) Please remember the Bully Walk guidelines:

1. NO retractible leashes
2. ONE dog per person
3. Aggression prone dogs are welcome to attend, but must be marked with a red bandana
4. Always pick up after your dog

The purpose of the Bully Walk is for socialization of us and our dogs, and to raise awareness that Pit Bulls and all bully breeds (American Staffordshire Terriers, American Bulldogs, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, etc.) are good Portland Citizens. We walk to fight stereotypes that are often attached with the breeds, and we want to show that these dogs are good dogs, owned by good people. Lets show Portland our PIT BULL PRIDE!


  1. So, I've never done this before and I'm a little confused. Does this mean that my friend and I can come and just each bring a dog (she has two, I have none)and just walk the dogs along with everyone else? Neither dogs are pitbulls, but is that ok?

  2. Emma,
    You and your friend and her dogs are very welcome to attend!! We ask that there be one dog walked by one person to make sure that each person has complete control over their dog, thats all :)I am looking forward to seeing you there! Please feel free to ask me any more questions if you are unclear :)

  3. Thanks so much for organizing this. The walk yesterday was so much fun! We had so much good feedback from the people standing by and passing by..they loved all of our dogs! :)

  4. i love it. this is my first year in portland and i was hoping something like this happened. pits are the best

  5. I am so glad that this is turning into a big success! Ryan, the walk is usually a little over a mile and takes about an hour :)

  6. I came accross your Blog today and couldn't help to ask when another walk will be??? I own a store on SE Hawthorne and have my pit in the store all day everyday :) I would love to help with sponsorship or whatever I may be able to contribute! Thanks!
