What we're about

Do you have a small dog (up to 20 lbs) that loves to get out but is overwhelmed at the dog parks? Maybe you have a rescue dog that still needs help getting socialized? Our group may be for you...

This group features regular walks on the southside/Ellerslie part of the city (although you can join us no matter where you live). If your dog isn't perfect with other small dogs that is ok... Dogs don't have to walk very close to one another and if your dog is nervous, anxious, moody they can walk a bit in front or behind everyone so they don't feel triggered / overwhelmed. We have some members that started out nervous and even after a couple walks are much more confident and calm walking with other dogs.

Group rules:

- You MUST bring poop bags and clean up after your dog.

- If you use a flexi-leash then the length MUST STAY LOCKED at a regular 5’ length for the entirety of the walk so dogs are not getting tangled.

- We will have walks that will be dirt trails where dogs will be walking in brush. As we are going into tick season, it is your responsibility to ensure your pet is protected from fleas and ticks with whichever treatment vet recommends.

- Our regular walks have been around 1 hour in length so please bring water and a little bowl for your pet so they can have a drink after the walk.

The organizer is not liable for any injuries to humans or dogs getting to/from or during any of the Meetup events.

Small Dog and People Walk

Tim Hortons

Our regular walk where small dogs are welcome. If you don't have a dog you are still welcome to join us. Dogs must be on a set leash (if flexi-leash must be locked on short) and owners must bring their own poop bags. We will walk at the pace comfortable for the majority and break into two smaller groups if 1) some want to walk fast, and/or 2) we need to separate dogs that are in bad moods... RSVP's close the Sunday before at 7:00 pm so please RSVP by then. If no RSVP's by Sunday night, the meetup for that week will be cancelled. Cost: $1.00 payable to Tammy We will discuss different walking routes (both sidewalk, path, trails) to try at future meetups.
