I have 2 standard poodles who love to play and socialize. We go to a couple of other dog meetups but don't meet too many other big dogs for running and more robust play. We're hoping to get together with any larger breeds who like to play and run too. We live in Southie, but we especially like Cat Rock Park in Weston. We are open to anyplace we can be off-leash in a safe or fenced place.

We welcome all sizes of dogs as long as they and their owner are comfortable with large dogs who may play more roughly or just seem to due to their size. Please be sure that your dog will be comfortable with a group of up to about 8-10 big dogs (I don't limit the number but that's about the most we've had at one meetup). This group is set up so that anyone can suggest and schedule a meetup, not just me. If you'd like to go somewhere particular, feel free to suggest a meetup and if at least 2 other people RSVP "yes" it will go out to the group.
