Cincinnati Chihuahuas Give Thanks Meetup
Please bring a food, toy, or cash donation for Recycled Doggies to give thanks to the rescue community. While we normally donate to the Cincinnati pet food pantry they, unfortunately, had to shut their doors, but their founding organization Recycled Doggies is always in need of help for their rescue dogs. Join the fun and lets meetup! Let's get together with our Chihuahuas for at least 90 minutes of playtime! This meetup is scheduled for the third SUNDAY of each month. There is an indoor playroom at Best Friends Pet Care, so we don't have to worry about our little Chihuahuas if the weather isn't just right. But if the weather is nice, there is an outdoor play area as well. There are also plenty of toys for them to play with and of course they will have each other! This meetup provides a great atmosphere for Chihuahuas to socialize and learn how to play with others. Even if your Chi is shy and will only watch the play, the pups are still learning proper doggie behavior. This meetup also provides great exercise for your Chi allowing them to run around and use up their energy. By the end of playtime, your dog will be ready for naptime! *Brie, Best Friends' Dog Trainer, usually attends our Chihuahua weekend meetup!

What we're about

Meetup with other local Chihuahua owners! All Chihuahuas and Chi mixes are welcome and their families too of course!

(If your Chi has a tiny brother or sister dog at home that really wants to come too, but is not a Chihuahua, email Susannah at

We will meet at least once a month to allow our Chi's to socialize and play in an off-leash environment. Playtime will last between 1-2 hours at Best Friends Pet Care. The cost is $2 per dog and is collected during each meetup. Best Friends is the perfect location for our Chihuahuas to play. There is an indoor playroom, which will allow our Chihuahuas to play together during any weather, so planning in advance is not a problem. There is also a fenced in outdoor yard for our Chis when the weather is just right. Both play areas are very dog friendly with plenty of doggie toys, even tiny ones for our Chi's, plenty of seating for Chi Owners and the outdoor area even has doggie equipment.

Best Friends also has a Dog Trainer, Brie, that will attend most of our meetups. Brie is wonderful and loves to answer questions for free during our meetup about raising and training dogs.

Directions to Best Friends Pet Care:
1. Take 275 to exit #50 Montgomery/Morrow.
2. Turn away from Wendys off the exit onto Montgomery Road and travel less than a half mile.
3. Almost immediately on Montgomery Road, get into the Left Turn Lane and turn Left on Cornell Road and travel less than a half mile.
4. Take the second Right onto Gideon Lane, which is just past the Jewish School for the Gifted. If you travel across the bridge and see Sycamore HS, you have gone too far.
5. Best Friends will be on the Right at 11216 Gideon Ln.
6. Park anywhere in the circle.
7. We may be playing in the fenced yard area to the Right of Best Friends. If the yard is empty, enter through the main lobby, pass the gift shop and the playroom is the first door on the right. It is always kept closed to keep our Chis safe inside, so please come in!
