"Mutts are different from other dogs. Truth be told, they are more like people than they are animals. Mutts look at the world through squinted eyes, eyes that have seen it all, too many times. They are impressed by little; canine Bogarts, a sneer on their lips, they have their own sense of flair, play, of dignity. The heart of a mutt is the heart of a lion, showing the hubrid vigor that makes him stronger than the sum of his component parts!!!" (pg. 7, Just Mutts by Steve Smith & Gene Hill) Let's hit the wooded trails (1-7 mile treks, generally local - easy/moderate), crash a K-9 Cocktail hour, check out waterfalls, head to the movies, dine outside at dog friendly places and maybe even swap some cat chasing stories....Come join us for fun with our four legged friends!!! Shhhhh - if you have a purebred, we won't tell...just bring your muttly attitude and we'll love ya just the same....


Leashes are required on all walks/hikes/events...Special occasions, we do let them swim off leash...

Children over 16 years of age are welcomed.  Some dogs are fearful of small children.  This group is for the 4-legged kind, so we hope you understand.

This is not a venue for business opportunities or a pet adoption forum.  It is simply an opportunity to enjoy a bit of socialization for you and your pup/s!   Please understand, this is a spam free zone!

Hikes: Averages 3-5 miles and are mostly in the local area...Some are in the North Ga Mountains...and can be longer.  Soon to come, camping!

K9 cocktails: Outside venues that allow dogs!

Dog Walks: In the city, in the country, at a historical site....

Misc Events: Training, agility, disc, bonfires, etc...If you don't see it and you want it...lets do it!

Festivals: Outdoor festivals and walks on special occasions; Haunted walks, Farmers Markets, Outdoor festivals that are dog friendly...

Forum of/for Information: sharing among our members topics like; Holistic pet living, grooming, training tips, and so much more...

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
