You’ve all seen the dog instagram accounts, the dog parent memes, and the funny t-shirts for dog owners. You’ve probably even purchased a Barkbox toy subscription for your fur baby… now there’s a new Meetup group for those of us who strive to give our canine kiddos the best possible lives - providing them with all the playtime, experiences, and endless love they deserve!
When I became a dog parent in 2015, I quickly realized that every day I was searching for new places to go, new parks to visit, and exciting activities where I could bring my new best friend. I’m starting this group to meet like-minded people who enjoy socializing and finding new adventure with their best buddy by their side. Baxter (my 4-year-old, 18-lb min pin terrier rescue) and I plan to schedule group visits to local dog parks and weekend hikes this winter. We look forward to more outdoor adventures in the spring, summer and fall, including kayaking, canoeing, SUP, boating, dog-friendly beach trips, doga, picnics, dog-friendly restaurant, winery, & brewery visits, Bark in the Park Nights (Phillies/Fightin Phils/Iron Pigs), dog-friendly 5ks, and more! Open to all suggestions and ideas from the group!
Most outings will be located around the Main Line and Philadelphia area and throughout Montgomery/Delaware County, Pennsylvania - with a few weekend/day trips to the Lehigh Valley, Poconos, New Jersey, or Delaware. Attendance for most events and activities will be limited. Dogs of all sizes and breeds welcome. You don’t need to have a dog to join the group, but you must love dogs and spending time with them!
If you think dogs are better than most people, this is the group for you!
