What we're about

Please read this entire page prior to joining New England Dog Friendly Day Trips, Getaways, Gatherings.

This group is for dog lovers who would like:

- Weekend getaways with your dog

-Attending day trips that are dog friendly

- Exploring New England with your furry friend

-Socializing with others that love their dog

-Participating in fun dog friendly events

-Or just spend an afternoon together

If you are like me, your dog is a very important part of your life.

I love to be outdoors and exploring new places, but most meetups that I belong to don't offer a lot of dog friendly excursions. Through my research I have found many great places to go, events to attend, and overnight getaways to participate in with my faithful companion. Join us on some of these adventures!

Only well behaved, socialized dogs and their humans are welcome to join. If you like the company of dogs ( and their humans) and don't have a dog in your life at the moment, you are welcome to join us as well.

Please post a current photo of you, or you and your dog, so that we can recognize you at an event!

If you are a no-show on 2 or more events, you will be removed from the group. Simply update your RSVP if you cannot attend, so that someone else can attend. A no-show is when you do not attend an event that you RSVP'd yes for, and do not change your RSVP to indicate that you will not attend.


1)If you choose to let your dog(s) off-leash, you are responsible for the dog's actions according to the terms of the Liability Waiver. You also agree to be responsible for any fines that may be incurred due to a breach of rules of the organization owning or responsible for the meetup location.

2) Dogs are expected to be well behaved and under owner control at all times. This group is for well socialized dogs only! We are not the venue for dogs that are learning how to socialize! The Meetup organizer reserves the right to remove or limit participation of members in any event due to a members inability to control their dogs behavior, including excessive barking, making others in the group feel uncomfortable in any way, aggressive behavior, or any behavior that exhibits lack of control of the dog, or causes another dog to feel unsafe.

If your dog barks excessively, any restaurant event may not be appropriate for your dog. Let's face it! All dogs will bark! Barking within reason is expected! Excessive barking is when your dog continues to bark and will not stop even when you use a voice command to attempt to stop his/her barking. Please be prepared to remove your dog from the event, if you cannot control his/her barking. It is not fair to other patrons of the establishment who are trying to enjoy the venue as well. We want to be invited back to a chosen venue, and do not want to jeopardize that in any way!

If your dog has an incident of aggressive behavior, causes other dogs or people in the group to feel uncomfortable in an way, you will be removed from the group.

3) You agree to take personal and financial responsibility for any damages to property, people or other dog(s) caused by your dog(s) or any dog(s) you have brought to the meetup.

6) This meetup is about having fun and meeting new friends. Please be kind and respectful of others at all times. I am not responsible for the actions of others, and cannot be held responsible for members actions. Any complaint about an individual will result in removal from the group.
