Description of the event: 
Dog walking in ESN Comenius University belongs to the most successful events in current semester. The first edition was organised during Welcome Week, with almost 50 participants.
On one hand it was great to have so many people on the first event but on other hand we didn’t expected it also employees in the shelter wasn’t prepared for so much people at once, so it was a bit challenging to organize it all. But it end up excellent and everyone enjoyed it, both dogs and participants. There were also some funny moments when some very confident individuals picked up too big and active dogs and they had problems to handle it so we needed to help them and show them how to properly walk the dog but then they became friends and carried on their own. Even the bad colder weather was not an obstacle for them.

We even established cooperation with people from the shelter and they are really happy that foreign students are interested in this kind of activity and that we are helping them to take care of the dogs.
