All medium/large (30-85 lbs) breed of dogs are welcome as long as they are well behaved, friendly to other dogs and people. NO INTACT MALE dogs over 8 months old.(As my dog is intact so we can't have more at the same time). Please be aware that most parks have leash laws. Hiking with your dog off leash is on your own risk. We limit our hikes to 6 dogs only as our group usually hikes off leash and I have found out that any more dogs than that it becomes very chaotic. Only up to 2 dogs per handler are allowed. Our group meets at dog friendly parks, local beaches for walks and swimming. We usually hike between 2 - 6 miles for about 1,5-3 hours with breaks for pups to play and swim. Meetup will be held mainly through Westchester County, Putnam County, NY and sometimes in Fairfield County, CT. RSVP is PER DOG not per person. Your suggestion where to meet are welcome!
Please note: When you join the group, you agree to hold harmless and free from blame the organizers, hosts, or any member, guest for any accident, injury, or illness which might be sustained from participating in the meetup activities. Each member, guest agrees to accept personal responsibility for his or her safety and the safety of all dogs. For safety reasons, children under the age of 13 are not permitted to attend the meet ups. Exemption can be made but talk to me first. If you get a fine for hiking off leash that is your responsibility.
