What we're about

For all you small dog owners who live in NW Calgary, here is a wonderful, convenient, location for you to come regularly and watch your little fur babies frolic and play with other little fur babies. This meetup group is for owners who have dogs under 20 pounds who get along very well with other dogs and all humans. We meet on scheduled Saturdays at 10 - 11 am at Raising Canine Dog Daycare located at #520, 20 Crowfoot Crescent NW. There is both an inside and fenced outside play area for your small pooches to run around with ease and delight. Cant wait to meet you and your little fur baby.

NW Small Dog & Small Puppy Playtime (See note re: 11:15 am)

11:15 am - 12:15 pm will now be the start time for the second group to attend if you’ve been waitlisted for the 10 am group. If you are waitlisted or simply want to attend the 11:15 am group, simply email me at [masked] using your personal email address, not through Meetup. New time is so the first group that ends at 11 am has time to leave before second group comes along :) For newcomers, our group was started to provide a safe environment where little dogs under 20 pounds (who live with their humans in NW Calgary) can come and not worry about big dogs stepping on them. We have been running the group for several years now and our members keep growing. The dogs and puppies develop strong lasting friendships with each other, as do their humans. In order to keep our group safe and comfortable, it is not designed for small dogs that are extremely anxious, nervous, stressed, overwhelmed, reactive, aggressive, over-excitable, chronically barking, and/or does not have appropriate canine play behavior. This indicates your dog is too uncomfortable and stressed being in the group, and it also upsets the stable energy and behaviour of the other dogs, including the comfort and enjoyment of their owners. However, if you require assistance with your dog’s socialization issues, please contact Velvetanne, Raising Canine’s owner and dog trainer @[masked] for private training sessions right in the comfort of your own home, or to inquire about our Reactive Dog Recovery Program. As well, all dogs must be neutered or spayed by 6 months of age, again for the safety and comfort of the other dogs. As well, if your fur baby is physically sick or injured, please hold off attending until she/he is healthy again. Cost per family (Cash please as I don’t always have change): *One dog - $10 *Two dogs - $15 *Three dogs or more - $20 (Prices include gst) If your dog(s) is/are a good fit for our group, and you and your entire family would love to come, please register and indicate ‘yes’ for the playtimes you would like to attend. We would love to have you join the rest of us small dog lovers. Once you've registered, please scan to email, or take a photo with your cell phone, of your dog's updated vaccination records and email to [masked]. You will also be required to sign a waiver upon your arrival. Cheers, Velvetanne
