Welcome to the 6th Annual Pup Crawl!

Woof, Bark, Yip, Grr, Arooooo,..no matter what language your dog speaks, every pupper and doggo in the Tri-State wants to go to the 6th Annual Pup Crawl!

Draw a big Pink Paw on your calendar for April 29th, because you and your pup have a date! It's only the Best. Day. Ever. Presented by Red Dog Resort and Spa, join 2,000, 2 legged and 4 legged friends, for an experience only Oakley and the Cincinnati Chapter of the NCCF can deliver. Register now, we go rain or shine, preferably shine, but your pups don't mind and it's fun either way.

Net proceeds benefit the 1 in 3 dogs that will be diagnosed with Cancer by furthering our mission of awareness, education, and research. The Oakley Pup Crawl is a donor-advised event that has completely funded a $108,000 Lung Cancer Grant at Ohio State University!

So how does this work?

Register right here, right now by selecting the number of humans and pups that will Crawl. That's it! The week prior to the crawl visit one of our early registration pick-ups (locations to be announced) or on April 29th at 11 AM, check-in at Oakley Square, aka Barkley Square, and receive your exclusive Pup Crawl event tee, Madtree Koozi for our first 500 registrants, Paw Joggers Crawl Cup, and Red Dog Resort Pup Crawl Bracelet good for discounts and freebies at 10 featured Oakley Crawl stops! Make your way through "Barkley Square," pick up some exclusive NCCF Pink Paw Crawl gear, stop and sniff over 40 vendors and see what treats they have to add to your bag; Doggy Tattoos, Pup-A-Razzi Booth, Reds Bark in the Park, treats, treats, more treats, and surprises! Give some belly rubs to the pups available for adoption from one of our many rescues, take them for a stroll, they sure would love an Aglamesis Doggie Dessert or a Hot Dog from Skyline Chili. Head out to our ten crawl stops including OPG, The Oak, Oakley Wines, and MadTree Brewing. Try our contests at 2, 3, & 4 and our check presentation at 3:30. It's a day you and your pup will never forget! "Together, WE Are The Cure."

  • Thursday, April 26 from 4:30 to 7 at The Oak Tavern
  • Friday, April 27 from 6 to 8PM - Braxton Brewing - Covington

Congrats to the 500t hat registered in time for a koozi, but they will not be available until Friday. We went back to the full color design you loved, so it took a little longer and they are worth it. There will be a special spot to pick them up on Sunday, with no lines. - Thank You!
