Details

Let's learn something, play something and be well. This event will be held at a special venue. Weather permitting we may have an opportunity to do a little bird watching, as they have a bird watching area next to the center. After, we will have a veterinarian discuss chihuahua care as they age. We will also review continued care options. Please send in your questions for the doctor when you RSVP.

A few things for your Chihuahua's health & safety:

~We always have fresh water available
~If you bring a treat, always ask owners before feeding other Chihuahuas -allergies!
~Please skip the meet if your dog is ill, in heat or has had recent surgery
~Please wear a leash until inside the play area
~Please keep an eye on your chihuahuas at all times
~Please clean up after your chihuahua

What happens at the meet?
Basically, we stand around while the chihuahuas play 'with each other.' We do not force them to socialize, we let them manage this on their own. Most chihuahuas get along very well with each other. Most new chihuahua members are shy the first few meets - this is quite normal. After a while, most venture out on their own and make new friends! Some play, some sniff around, some just hang out and watch everyone else. They are all different.

REQUIRED --This is a new indoor venue. We had to pay for insurance, a rental fee, and deposit for space. All Chihuahuas are required to 'go' before they come inside to avoid any accidents. We want to make sure we don't get charged for cleanup costs. We hope everyone will honor this request and ensure your chihuahuas have gone outdoors and avoid using the venue as the bathroom.

Please check the site before you leave your house to make sure it hasn't canceled. You are also welcome to call us if you have questions[masked]

We're looking forward to playing with you - Woof!
