What we're about

Hello! This meetup is for Golden Retrievers (purebred and mixed) their owners and friends, and their siblings, i.e., of all coats & colors, of Golden! Our members span the Denver metro area as well as in the mountains. We welcome all of you!

We try to arrange a mix of activities that cater to the Golden Retriever lifestyle of being outside in the mountains, and also just being social. We will provide options for all kinds of companions from serious hikers to easy strollers. We also plan dog park meetups, dog-friendly brewery outings, pot-luck parties, and meetups for local Colorado canine events and fundraisers, like the Denver Dumb Friends League Furry Scurry or the Colorado Rockies Bark-In-The-Park.

We promise to work hard to provide lots of different types of activities for you and your pup and we look forward to making lots of friends.

We hope you will consider joining us for each and every Meetup Event - but especially next year's Furry Scurry in May, the Wag N Trail in September, and the Olde Golden Christmas Parade in Golden and Breckenridge Processional in December. :) Please review the RSVP information and other policies page for more details on being a part of the group. You can also edit your email settings to tailor them to your preferences.

We welcome Meetup suggestions - so please let us know if you have an idea for an activity you'd like us all to be a part of. We hope you will enjoy the time you spend with the group! Thank you,
Rick, Emma, Grace & Peyton
