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.

TBD PLACEHOLDER Pooch Pool Party - Gaithersburg

Needs a location

***************2021 info **************

Sorry about the late notice. Here is the weblink to register. Preregistration is required. If this one stays to pre-labor day this will be come an annual event that kicks off the pool season and I'll need someone to sneak me in as a non-resident if they require Montgomery county license to enter.

To participate, dogs must have a current Montgomery County dog license and written proof of a rabies vaccination.

For a $10 fee, dogs get their chance to paddle in the pool before it closes for the summer. Human companions attending the party with their pooches can only wade in up to their knees.

To register, dog owners can visit Active Montgomery’s website. https://apm.activecommunities.com/montgomerycounty/Activity_Search/pooch-pool-party/128385

New Jersey Corgis Annual Picnic

Needs a location

Calendar Placeholder for New Jersey Corgi Club annual gathering.

All Paws on Deck Canine Swim- Winchester Swim

Needs a location

Placeholder for Calendar. This event typically happens right after Laborday.

This is the only event I have found that actually lets you join your corgi in the water for an actual swim. There is a deep large pool and a small kiddie pool. We are locals so will not miss this one. For everyone else please be mindful that Winchester is a good two hours away from DC before RSVPing.

End the summer with a canine splash. Bring your furry friend out of an evening of swimming in the Jim Barnett Park outdoor pool.

Proof of rabies vaccination required for entrance.

Resident / Non-Resident Fees
Child $6.00
Student $6.50
Adult $7.00
Senior $6.00
Family (up to 4 members) $16.00
