I’m jumping out of my seat as I write this. I have wanted to take Dexter to the IndyHumane’s Mutt Strut ever since I saw my Cavalier friend Elvis walk the track four years ago. This April, we will be visiting Carmel, Indiana, just north of Indianapolis. I will be crossing this dog event off my personal bucket list during our weekend stay in Hamilton County!

The Indy Mutt Strutt is a One-of-a-Kind Dog Event

The Mutt Strut will be held on the Motor Speedway on April 27, 2019. As a household who loves Indy car racing, this is a big deal for us. We, including Dexter, will be walking the historic Indianapolis Motor Speedway track and even have the chance to kiss the bricks, all while supporting IndyHumane.

The Mutt Strut isn’t just open to dogs, but other animals as well. It is advisable to ensure the pets are comfortable in a large crowd, as the event typically draws 3-4,000 people and pets each year. Some pets would do best in a carrier, pet wagon, or covered stroller. Hoofed animals wearing rubber-soled shoes for the entire day are permitted to participate.

The Gran Prix course is 2.5 miles long. However, there is a shorter route that is just over a mile in length. This allows pets and people of all abilities the opportunity to participate. And you’d better believe that Dexter will be utilizing his dog stroller and a good pair of dog boots. I have heard that the track can warm and be a bit rough on pads.

During the event there will be plenty of food trucks and vendors to sniff out. Or, if you wish, you can pack a lunch for you and your pooch. The most important thing to pack is a good attitude, and be ready for a howling good time.

Dexter is ready with his dog racing jacket with his favorite number, 12, for Mr. Will Power. You can register online as an individual, or you can join a team. Dexter and I would love for you to join our team! You can do that here. If you cannot join in person, don’t worry, you can still join and support IndyHumane virtually.

  1. Rex said I can begin shopping for booties and pack his stroller! How exciting to be able to walk the Indy track and spring should be an awesome time to do it! Yippee / woof 🐾

  2. Now this sounds like such a fun road trip, those googles are absolutely adoreable as well. Sally has been suffering with the sun since her eyesight started to go and I’ve been thinking about getting some with a tint for her.

  3. That is such a very lovely dog. I love it when I hear happenings similar to this. Pet and owners get to bond happily together.

  4. Dexter looks so great in that Indi hat and jacket! Anyway, that giveaway is amazing! The dog-friendly stay has to be my favorite.
