Welcome to the 5th Annual Pup Crawl!

In 5 short years the Pup Crawl has become Cincinnati's favorite canine event! We cannot thank you enough for all of the support and love.

Presented by Red Dog Resort, the Oakley Pup Crawl has grown from 220 crawlers to over 1,500 and we guarantee 2017 will be even bigger and better. Register you and your furkids now to reserve a spot in the only crawl WITH your dog.

Mark your calendar for April 30th and enjoy a dog day Sunday afternoon with all of your best friends, both furry and non, supporting the National Canine Cancer Foundation. Net proceeds benefit the 1 in 3 dogs that will be diagnosed with Cancer and will be presented to the Ohio State University for FINAL payment of a $94,000 canine lung cancer research grant.

Check-in with your Pup at Oakley Square, aka Barkley Square, and receive your exclusive Pup Crawl event tee, Madtree Koozi for first 500 registrants, Red Dog Resort Pup Crawl Bracelet good for discounts and freebies at 13 featured Oakley Crawl stops! Make your way through "Barkley Square," pick up some exclusive NCCF Pink Paw gear, stop and sniff some vendors and see what treats they have to add to your bag; Doggy Tattoos, Pup-A-Razzi Booth, Reds Bark in the Park and many more surprises. Stop and give some belly rubs to the pups available for adoption from one of our many rescues, and maybe Rent-A-Rescue Pup for 2 hours and take them out on the Crawl with you, they sure would love an Aglamesis Doggie Dessert. Head out to our thirteen crawl stops, contests at 2, 3, & 4 and OSU check presentation. Are your paws getting tired? Catch the Red Dog Resort Bus to the NEW Madtree Brewery!

We are asked all the time if The Oakley Pup Crawl is kid friendly? Not only are kids 13 and under FREE with a paid adult, but we have many crawl stops perfect for your non-furry kid. One of those is King Arthurs Court and we are very excited to feature a lovely young Cincinnati author, Piper C. Hawkins. Piper's second book The Puppy Tooth Fairy is about a little girl and her rescue dog and the beautiful lessons dogs can teach us about spreading joy to others. Perfect for our crawl, we know!

Come meet Piper from 2-4pm. She will not only be selling and signing copies of her book, but will also read it to your furry and non-furry babies at 2:30 & 4;30pm. Books will be available to purchase there, but if you just have to get your paws on one right now click here.

See Jordan Frank perform Chasing Butterflies LIVE at the Crawl in honor of Keys!
