    We brought it and I'm happy so many enjoyed it. I found out you are Kat's cousin. She is one of my FB friend and we love watching her do disc stuff when we can.

      Water is the the easiest thing for me to remember. I usually forget the treats.

    Tucker had an awesome time he loved all of his retriever buds and the water was his favorite. He also

    Chevy Loved it! She couldn't get enough of the swimming. Funny watching the dogs waiting at the dock gate for their turn. Was like being at adventure island with the kids.

    When is the next meet up?

    • Jan C.

      We loved having Chevy there! She was so cute learning to swim - nothing could have held her back. The next meet-up will most likely be in July.

    Thanks to whoever brought the (community) water jug. Sorry that Max kinda took over the water drinking area. He likes to be in control. lol

    • Jan C.

      I missed the community watering bowl. Know that there are bowls next to the pump so Max can have some water there as well!

      I thought Jeter was the water hog & I also greatly appreciate the fact you brought the water. I forgot our water in the car; not that he would've drank it. He always prefers what the other dogs bring.

    What a fabulous time. Cocoa enjoyed running around with other participants and was really worn out.

    • Jan C.

      As always, we enjoyed having Cocoa out for the romp. He's a good boy!

    This was such a wonderful time! Thank you so much for setting this up!! Jeter had a great day even though we only got him in the pool w/ me at the end to stand & be held. Your technique & patience is awesome & everyone was wonderful!!! Thanks to all <3

    Great time, just wish ebony would play

      Lynn, Ebony looked like she was having a great time just chilling in the shade. Like me when I go to a park and do people watching. :>)

    • lynn g.

      Thanks, she is so layed back, maybe someday she will play

    Lots of great photos in the album section. Thank you to those who recorded this play date!

    1 · May 31

  • Mike M.

    Max and Lexi had a great time with all the other retrievers. Wish they would swim instead of dipping their toes in.

    • Angelica S.

      Give them time, some of them take a while. :)

      May 31

    • Jan C.

      Getting toes wet is the first step! Thanks for not insisting they swim - patience in getting this behavior is key to future fun in water.

      May 31

  • Mara M.

    I have some photos with Freddie's (sp?) sister in them. She was such a sweet girl & was petting my Jeter. I wanted to check first to make sure ok to upload them.

    Jace had a blast!

    • Jan C.

      If only we could get Jace to like the pool, LOL!

      May 31

  • Kim Michele L.

    What a blast! Retrievers play so well together, and the pool is so much fun. Thank you for doing this!

    • Jan C.

      Thanks for coming out!

      May 31

  • Barbara A.

    Although Lily didn't try the pool she had a good time running, playing and watching others from the shade.

    4 · May 31

    • Jan C.

      Lily was so sweet! She could really turn on the speed! Glad you brought her.

      May 31

  • Barbara A.

    We may just bring Lily today. If we bring Tayla I'll have to go in the pool to get her and drag her out every time. She cant be around the pool and not become nuts! Just not feeling it today.

    May 31

    • Mara M.

      I don't mind helping out. I'm only bringing one of my dogs & he will likely have to be coaxed (pushed) in

      2 · May 31

    • Angelica S.

      thank you for being willing to help. It is appreciated. :)

      1 · May 31

  • Mara M.

    From reading the comments, I assume for this activity pool wear & flip flops are appropriate for us parents as opposed to shorts & sneakers?

    1 · May 31

    • Angelica S.

      both sneakers or flip flops are appropriate, your call. :) Towels are a must. Definitely plan on getting wet, that is ideal. :)

    Sorry can't make it. I'll be out of town

    May 28

    • Angelica S.

      We will see you next time!

      Hope you can make the next meetup!

  • Mara M.

    I assume lab or golden mixes are ok? I have 2 (one of each) but will probably bring my golden.

    1 · May 28

    • Angelica S.

      Yes all retriever variations :)

      3 · May 28

    • Jan C.

      Love the mixes. My Abby was a Goldador and one of the best dogs ever.

  • Steven

    Hello! Is this meetup for retrievers only? I ask because we have a greyhound that loves to play and we were looking for a safe environment for her to socialize. She does not know how to swim but she loves to run and chase with other dogs :)

    1 · May 25

    • Angelica S.

      Hi Steven, welcome to the group! You as a person are more than welcome to attend the meetup but we ask that only Retrievers come to this specific meet up. BUT we are adding a sighthound meetup so if you give me your email, i will let you know when i have added it and you can join that group. It will be a similar type of thing except we will have free lure coursing. :)

      1 · May 25

    • Steven

      That sounds amazing! Thank you! I sent you a pm with my email :)

      1 · May 26

  • Marlene M. K.

    I would have loved to come to this meet up,with Tucker, but we were in Indian Harbour Beach and he was playing in the big waves in the Atlantic. Please let us know about future Retreiver meet ups!

    Jan is really good about watching the dogs to see if any are getting too ruff or they need a little time out. Keeps everyone feeling safe.

    2 · April 22

  • Barbara A.

    Rick and I will be bring Tayla, our water obsessed Golden and Lily, our laid back I'll run a bit and watch others in the water Golden.

    2 · May 25

    Cocoa just loves to be around and meet everyone

    2 · May 10

  • Barbara A.

    Rick and I will be bringing Tayla and Lily this time. Should be warm enough for me to get in the pool each time and pull Tayla out :)
