What we're about
Welcome to Little Yappers Dog Party Meetup Group!
We have changed the name of the group from The Shih Tzu and Lhasa Meetup Group to Little Yappers Dog Party Meetup Group because we want to open up to all those darling little dogs that we love so much. This group is dedicated to all little dogs, under 25 lbs., regardless of breed or mix of breeds. We want to have our little dogs play and socialize together - and we, as their humans, can share tips, experiences, and just the joy of being with other folks who share our love for adorable little dogs.
Little Yappers Dog Party Meetup Group will meet on the second Saturday of the month from 2-4pm. Our first meeting is set August 10th – we will be announcing the location soon. During the hottest months we will be scheduling our meetings in local, dog friendly businesses so that our little ones AND ourselves can stay cool in hot Austin. During the cooler months we would are asking our members to host the meetings their big, shady backyards.
At each meeting we will plan on having an interesting speaker from the Central Texas area come and share with us what it is they do and how we can benefit from their expertise. The co-sponsors and organizers of this group are Mary Hey, owner of Lap of Luxury Dog Resort, who provides quality grooming and doggy day care services up off of FM 620, and Marilyn Nichols, Happy Puppy Tutoring and Happy Puppy Tiny Dog Boarding, who provides quality training for all breeds and all behavior issues and comfy in home boarding for tiny dogs. We will each provide tips in our areas of expertise and will be available to the members at all times to answer questions.
