What we're about

Woof! Doodle Dogs Of Philadelphia is where Doodles (Labradoodles, Goldendoodles, Double Doodles) and their Doodle owners get together for Doodle playdates, Doodle adventures, and all forms of fluffy Doodle goodness. We're a quirky bunch, us Doodle folk, and dangit' we want to to meet other Doodly people and pets, just like us. Join us for Doodle beach days, Doodle play dates, Doodle hikes and even some human stuff too. Who doesn't need more furry friends in their lives? Own one Doodle? Own oodles of Doodles? Then you're in, our Doodle loving friend! We'll even shake a paw on it.

Doodle Playdate & Ice Cream Social

Needs a location

Let’s celebrate National Dog Day all the way into the weekend at Schuylkill River Dog Run and Salty Paws doggie ice cream shop!

One of the city's most well-maintained parks, Schuylkill River Dog Run features a large dog and small dog section both covered with astroturf and outfitted with hoses, wading pools and dog water fountains. We will be meeting on the large dog side. The park is conveniently located alongside the 2,000 ft. long Schuylkill Banks Boardwalk which extends the Schuylkill River trail from Locust to South St. if you would like to enjoy a long walk beforehand.

At around 3:40PM we will assemble the group and walk about 7 blocks (approximately a 15 minute walk) to Salty Paws doggie ice cream shop in Rittenhouse Square, where they will be hosting a special ice cream social just for us. *Sorry, pet parents: they do not serve human ice cream here. But if you're in the mood, I recommend stopping by Gran Caffe L'Aquila afterwards for the best gelato in town.

  • 2:30PM: Meet at Schuykill River Dog Run 2500 Spruce St Phila. 19103
  • 4:00PM: Meet at Salty Paws 211 S 17th St, Phila. 19103

Please be aware street parking is hard to come by in this neighborhood, so leave an extra 20 minutes to find a spot. I usually have luck finding metered spots along South St. on the[masked] blocks. You may wish to park in a garage since we will be longer than 2 hours.

10th Annual Dog-a-Poolooza at Hatfield Aquatic Center

Needs a location

Each year at the end of their season, Hatfield Aquatic Center opens up their pools to canines for Dog-A-Poolooza, an event fundraiser for local rescue/animal welfare organizations. There will be raffle prizes, silent auctions, and the snack bar will be open should you wish to purchase food.

I thought we could let the pups romp around at the dog park to the right of the pool first. I probably won't stay past 2pm, but dogs are welcome in the pool area from 10am-4pm for those interested.

  • 10:00AM-10:45AM: Meet up at Hatfield Dog Park 2500 Chestnut St, Hatfield, PA 19440
  • 11:00AM-2:00PM: Dog-a-poolooza Hatfield Aquatic Center 2500 Chestnut St, Hatfield, PA 19440

$5/person, $10/dog at the door (credit cards accepted)


There is limited seating inside the pool area so many people elect to bring beach chairs/towels. You are also permitted to bring your own food and drink, as long as it is not in glass. Feel free to also bring floating dog toys if your dog likes to play water fetch!
