  • The Rochester Big Dog Playgroup

     Myself and Carmen really enjoyed our first ever walk with member Don and canine companion "Mary Jane" today, down through Fairport. I think there was some confusion as to where everyone was supposed to meet, and hope that more vigilance of incoming emails and changes can be rectified? (perhaps a cut off point for changes to locations and a Street number or landmark on Google maps to go by) just a suggestion (not a complaint) Today, I felt was a great walk (with only one member (Don) present) it worked out the best for our first ever walk, there was a lot of activity for a young dog and proud of her behaviour in public. Thank you Don for your guidance and look fwd to meeting all the other members now it's Spring...get on out there! "Thunder from Down Under" (Craig Kendall) P.S. Let's try and co-ordinate better for maximum benefit for our "Pawed Mates" to meet as a group as well as ourselves at the same time :)

     I would like to attend with my dog (for our first time) but he fractured his toe (!) playing with another dog so he's confined for a few weeks. :(

     Appreciate the opportunity to be able to socialize my pup safely. In the absence of play parks, the walks are a great alternative

     I never realized how anti-social my dog was until I brought her to the group, she sat on my lap for the first half hour, all 90 lbs of her, lol. When she finally ventured off my lap, she started to warm up to the other dogs and started running and playing. It was a great day, plus she slept the whole afternoon when we got home.

     Dogs who are well socialized attend and therefore it is a good situation to feel your dog will be safe.

     You can talk to other dog owners and your dogs get to socialize and play with other dogs and people, too. There are different breeds of dogs and personalities of people! It's a win-win situation for everyone!

     The meetup group brings people together who have a love for dogs. It gives you a chance to meet new people and to share stories about your special pet.

  • The Rochester Big Dog Playgroup

     This is a group where not only are your BIG Dogs get to socialize with other dogs but you also get to meet the caregivers of these Big babies. The activities are great and the safety of your babies is first, the dogs get to release the their stress and they have an opportunity to change environment. The release the built up energy that sometimes we don't have the time to make sure they get it all out. If you love our pet this is one of the safest place to bond with your dog. Many events and if you have a small dog, Tara will accommodate your need, she has other groups and if your dog does not fit into the ones she has, I am sure she will make another one.

  • The Rochester Big Dog Playgroup

     If you have a dog and want to get it socialized with other dogs this is the place to do it. Besides, it is always nice to meet with other dog owners and share stories.

     It's a great way to meet dogs and other people. It's a great way to learn new ideas as a pet owner too.
