What we're about

Capital Corgi Club is for all corgis and the humans who love them in the greater Washington metro area. Whether you have one corgi, two corgis or are considering adding a corgi to your family, you and your family are welcome to join us for breed play groups and other corgi related fun. These events are for the dogs. Please RSVP the number of Corgis (not humans) attending unless otherwise noted on the event RSVP.

If you see an event with 12:00 AM that is not a mistake. I create events with midnight start time as a placeholder slot pending exact details to ensure the event shows up on the calendar in the correct order. Please be patient with me updating the site. In 2019 I will be trying out limiting the RSVP start date to less than 30 days out for most events to try to avoid folks signing up weeks in advance, forgetting to update, and then no-showing.

I do my best to avoid setting up events when other corgi groups have stuff the same day in the same general area to avoid splitting up attendance. If you have an event you would like to publicize please message me ideally with all the details I need to repost or the link to your event page. I will only repost events where corgis can attend.

We have no permanent home so we bounce from location to location. Please check upcoming meetups for our next gathering's location, time and date. I will try to put any entrance fee or venue rules when I learn of them myself. Please always be prepared to provide proof of vaccinations etc when attending an indoor venue event just in case it is required. For puppy safety, no puppy under the age of 16 weeks should attend events as they need to receive last shots at roughly that time. Aggressive dogs (or humans) will be banned by group consensus.

Upcoming events (4+)

Pumpkin Farm Fun - Snead's (Corgis of Fredericksburg)

Snead's Asparagus Farm

Join us for informal gathering to pick pumpkins at Sneads (leashed dogs always welcome) 17 acres of very large pick-your-own multi-colored pumpkins and 4 acres of very large pick-your-own white pumpkins. Take our very-large pumpkins home for set price $ a piece!

Please see Snead's website before RSVP'ing for admission fee and cost of various things they have (food, rides, crops)

If you have already RSVP'd to the Corgis of Fredericksburg event in Facebook no need to re rsvp for me here.

Grist Mill Corgi Kindergarten (Puppy socialization) VA SIDE

Grist Mill Dog Park

As promised we will be holding a 1 hour puppy socialization for corgis between the ages of 17+ weeks and under 2. Please make sure that you have all vaccinations. Do not attend this if you do not also have Bordetella vaccine which some vets consider optional.

We will allow them to interact freely so they learn social skills including how to say "leave me alone" so please be prepared to only separate them if they get a bit out of hand. If anyone asks you to separate your dog bc they feel the play is getting a bit rough or to ask your dog to stop harassing, just do it whether you agree or not as that is dog park etiquette.

Families with older sibling corgis obviously can bring them. This is a public dog park so I cannot control who is at the park so please use your discretion.

For those with enthusiasm to spare we can follow this up with a visit to Mt. Vernon.

Monthly Mob - Grist Mill Dog Park (Mt. Vernon)

Grist Mill Dog Park

Please note this is "adult hour" as we are having the puppies out half an hour earlier for socializing.

Normal dog park rules apply (vaccinations, over 16 weeks, no heat and no aggressive dogs).

For those of you interested the Mount Vernon unguided stroll will follow.

Mt. Vernon Stroll - (unguided)

George Washington's Mount Vernon

We will be informally strolling the grounds at Mt. Vernon. Please visit Mt. Vernon website for admission and rules information.

We will gather at the bowling green gates at 11am (the lawn to take pictures of the front of the house) and stroll for roughly an hour around the estate stopping for lots of photo ops. Obviously, corgis are NOT allowed inside the actual main house/pavilion (but they are allowed in the farm structures)

Please check Mt. Vernon website for venue rules and admission prices etc prior to coming. ADMISSION IS NOT FREE.

Puppy socialization is available that morning at Grist Mill Park followed by "adult time" so please bring out the high energy corgis to let off some steam before coming to Mt. Vernon.
