What we're about

Do you want to enjoy time WITH your dog instead of just dropping them off? Prefer your small dog only interact with other small dogs? Have a shy or timid dog that a big group might be too much for? Cold and rainy day and you just need to get him out of the house for a little exercise? Want your puppy to get some social skills?

Small Dog Playgroup Do you sometimes want the chance to let your little pup run around with friends only his size? And did you want to be there for the fun? Here is your chance! Calling all dogs under 30 pounds and their owners.

Puppy Playgroup This is a great opportunity for your puppy to develop play skills with both you and other puppies in a safe and supervised environment. Puppy playgroup is intended for puppies ages 12 weeks to 9 months.

Tiny Tots Playgroup Because sometimes even the Small Dog Playgroup is too much for your extra small dog. Tiny Tots was created with those very dogs in mind. This group is specifically for dogs that are only 15 pounds & under. But also a great fit for dogs that are especially shy or nervous. An off leash event with the owner giving the littlest dogs a chance to socialize without being intimidated by the bigger & more energetic dogs

DDG will be offering playgroup options throughout the month to meet all of your needs.

We do on occasion do have other fun playgroups and meet and greets for many rescues we work with locally.
