We are all about dogs! The Sarasota-Bradenton area is a great place to be, especially if you have a dog. We'll meet with and without our dogs and explore dog-friendly places about town. If the group decides that they are interested in a particular doggie topic, we'll arrange for a guest speaker.
For tiny dogs 12 lbs and under, check out our Petite Pups PlayGroup Meetups.
Medium and larger dogs we have you covered at all other Meetups.
Mostly we just want to meet other dog folk in Sarasota and Bradenton and have fun!
Just a quick note about rules.
We always try to make our Meetups dog-friendly. However there are some classes offered and/or talks, when it is not appropriate to bring your dog. So, please, if you see a note that says humans only - please do not bring your dog.
Also! If you RSVP as YES to Meetup with limited availability and there is a waiting list - and you do not come, and do not change your RSVP to NO, more than twice - you will be removed from the group. We understand that things happen so we will not remove you unless this happens more than twice. But after that, it's not fair to other members who would like to attend the Meetup, but can't because it is full.
Also, just one more thing. Please do not use retractable leashes at SarasotaDog Meetups. Accidents can happen and we want every one to be safe!
Thank you. :)
