What we're about

Calling all extra small dogs (10 pounds and under) and their owners! We'd love for our Giggles and Chipper to meet other very small dogs! They are fully grown at 4 and a half pounds and 6 and a half pounds.

Check out our photos from past Meetups. All small dogs that have good doggy manners and are polite with other dogs of any breed or mix are invited. Please be sure your dog(s) are healthy and up-to-date with shots, heart worm and flea & tick medication. Pups should be spayed or fixed.

Come join our fun and friendly group! No treats during the Meetup as it is not fair to the other dogs. We do have certain special occasions where we do have goodies.

Anyone you bring that is bringing a dog MUST sign up and have a Profile as we have to know what dogs are going to be there for safety reasons. This is a rule that must be followed if we are going to maintain this Meetup.

You cannot bring more than one or two family members or friends who do not have a dog as we just do not have the room for the extra people who just want to look at dogs. Message us if you need to make a one-time exception because of out-of-town visitors. You certainly need to bring your own chairs for guests.

Providing your dog with a consistent routine of ongoing socialization is a key to maintaining their well-being and to preventing many behavior issues, specifically those due to boredom, lack of confidence, and stress. Learning good social skills leads to a healthy and happy dog!

So we'll meet every first Sunday and every fourth Friday of each month and maybe also for a walk in Bird Park or more off-leash social time (we have FREE use of a huge indoor space in Norwood, MA). We'll see what other pooch play events we can also schedule. Feel free to email me with any of your own ideas! We can also meet sometimes at Panera Bread (they allow dogs on their patio!) for some food and drink afterward. We might even do some pup sitting for each other and a sharing of ideas!

Because of allergies that some dogs have, no food or treats are allowed during the time we meet indoors.

Attend any of our fun Meetups and your dog will thank you with wags of gratitude! Following all of these Guidelines have allowed us to continue successfully since August of 2015! WE NEED TO RUN A TIGHT SHIP WITH ALL THE MEMBERS THAT WE HAVE! WE ARE DEALING WITH A LOT OF MEMBERS AND DOGS.

PLEASE only join if you are serious about attending our group and PLEASE change your RSVP if your plans do change. We do take this Meetup seriously and we do keep track of no-shows. We ask that you have a photo for your Profile. This is very important.

You WILL be removed from the group after three no-shows without any explanation. All you have to do is take a second to change your RSVP and/or comment that you just could not make it. We wait for you and lock the door afterwards. On a walk we stand there and wait for you. Meet-up can keep track of no shows.

Meet-ups cost us $110 every 6 months and our ZOOM plan is $16 a month, so feel free to donate via PayPal. The email is Lgh324@aol.com. Please help out with any amount! Thank you in advance. Plus we put a lot of time into keeping it updated and planning events. We also wash the toys, pee pads, water dishes, take away garbage from the room and restroom, buy the paper towels and gifts for the owner, etc. etc. Thank you in advance for "Chipping In"!
