Hello, new friends, and welcome to Philly Area Dog Moms Outdoor (PADMO)!
With this group, we are hoping to coordinate activities with fellow “Dog Moms” and dog lovers from all walks of life, who have one thing in common: they want to enjoy the outdoors and outdoor-focused events with dogs!
This is an intersectional, inclusive, casual group for women, female-identified people, gender non-binary/non-conforming (NB), queer, and other-allied people who enjoy being outdoors and the company of dogs! People and dogs of all abilities and skills are welcome.
Dog-ownership is not a requirement to be a member of PADMO, but acceptance (and love!) of dogs of all sizes and breeds during outdoor-focused activities like pack walks, trips to dog parks, nature walks, hikes, canoe trips, kayaking trips, beach trips, picnics, "walk-tails", and other dog-friendly, outdoor-focused activities is strongly preferred.
Basically, being a dog-friendly human is a must!
This group is all about inclusion, fun, and making new friends - for your pup AND you! Please feel free to suggest events and ideas; we want this group to be welcoming, low-key, and relaxed for you and your pup!
Please be aware, if you own a dog and intend to bring them to activities, it is preferential that your dog be dog-friendly. Although it is difficult to anticipate how any two or more dogs may interact when meeting for the first time, you know your dog best, and know what situations they may and may not tolerate.
This group welcomes and emphasizes the membership and participation of people of all abilities and skill levels, and strives to arrange welcoming, low-key, stress-free outings for all. Harassment, prejudicial behavior and aggression are unwelcome.
