What we're about

Our goal as a group is to create a community of dog owners and pups helping each other become the best we can be.

Working together to implement the meaning of responsible ownership: taking a hands on approach; obtaining knowledge that will allow us to understand and influence our dog's behavior in a positive way; and learning how to use obedience training, dog behavior knowledge, proper social interactions and nature as tools to lead our dogs into becoming healthy, happy, friendly and well-behaved members of our families and community.

This group welcomes ALL Dogs and their owners, providing activities in natural outdoor settings to help you and your dog become more social and well-balanced.

Please review our Liability Disclosure (https://www.meetup.com/South-Bay-Social-Dogs/pages/Liability/).

We will hike, walk, play, train and learn; helping each other as well as less fortunate dogs in our community.


Our "1st Sunday of the month" walk features a gorgeous South Bay location, while the occasional mid-month excursions take our pups to other eye-opening locales throughout Southern California, such as the Old LA Zoo, Paramount Ranch, Malibu Canyons, and Huntington Dog Beach.
