Warner Bros. Consumer Products, dog behavior expert Cesar Millan, and Scooby-Doo invite friends and family for the Scooby-Doo and Cesar Millan National Family Pack Walk on Sunday, October 30, at Lake Balboa Park in Van Nuys, CA.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from the event will be donated to the Millan Foundation, which strives to create and deliver community humane education programs and promote animal welfare by supporting the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of abused and abandoned dogs.
As part of an ongoing partnership with Scooby-Doo and Cesar Millan, the National Family Pack Walk brings together humans and dogs for a day filled with fun activities, games, training and education.
The entire experience is geared toward enhancing the relationship between owner and dog, kicking off with the main event – a 1.5-mile Pack Walk led by Cesar and the beloved Scooby-Doo.
“This is a movement towards reconnecting ourselves with our dogs and our dog community. It is more meaningful than just walking a dog,” said Millan of the event. “I want it to be symbolic of being part of a community and group that is focused on building healthy relationships with their dogs and each other.”
The event will have a seasonal theme, bringing in the spooky Halloween adventure befitting Scooby-Doo and his mystery-solving gang. The Expo will feature Scooby-themed activities from key Warner Bros. partners, licensees and charitable sponsors, creating a fun, interactive environment for families.
In addition to the 1.5-mile pack walk around Lake Balboa Park, attendees and their furry friends will experience a Scooby-Doo Reading Lounge, a screening room featuring exciting new Scooby-Doo adventures, a gaming room for fans of Scooby video and online games, a photo booth, a scavenger hunt, a Halloween doggie costume contest, an off-leash doggie agility and training course, presentations by dog experts, a meet-and-greet with Scooby costume characters and the Mystery Machine, and snacks for the whole pack!
In the Scooby-Doo screening room, fans will be able to enjoy a preview of Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group’s (WBHEG) new Scooby-Doo release, Scooby-Doo Legend of the Phantosaur, as well as episodes from the first season of Warner Bros. Animation’s animated adventure series Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated. Season 2 of Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated is coming soon to Cartoon Network.
