What we're about

This group is for English Bulldog breeds and their bully parents. Be among people that understand bully headbutts, snorts and farts! We will meet monthly for on and off leash play dates in parks, bulldog friendly hikes, restaurant takeovers, support community events, provide breed representation and more! Bulldog parents are encouraged to share resources, education and tips on the bulldog breed. Outings and activities will take place primarily in the east bay and in various locations. If you have an idea for an event, please contact the organizer! :)

Good News: I will have a raffle at the monthly takeover because who doesn't like free stuff and it does the heart good to give presents! Bad News: Meetup charges $30 a month for organizers to use their platform. If you feel inclined to donate towards either cause, please do so at an event or Venmo @AngelFoster (look for Snickers in my profile). You will get recognized with a "Bark Out" on the next event/page, unless you ask to be anonymous. Joining the group is free and there is no obligation to donate.

* Please note, the emphasis on this group is the social aspect and support. Re-homing and rescue is encouraged. Discussions pertaining to responsible breeders (ie. how to choose a breeder) are permissible. NO ADVERTISEMENTS OR SALE OF BULLDOGS ARE ALLOWED WITHIN THIS MEETUP PLATFORM. The organizer reserves the right to delete any post containing solicitation for business.

Restaurant Takeover @ Lazy Dog (Newark)!

Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar

As rain is predicted for nearly every weekend of January, our first meetup for the new year will be a dog friendly restaurant takeover. Its an informal time to socialize, have brunch and share ideas for planning the new year. Arrive on time for a raffle ticket and a chance to win a cool prize! This should go without saying, but ya never know. Being able to dine at a restaurant with a dog is a privilege. Although this is a dog friendly restaurant, please adhere to community dog courtesies. In public we represent the breed and want to be invited back. 😊 1) Well-behaved dogs are welcome. 2) Dogs must remain on a short leash at all times. No roaming to other tables. 2) Do not allow your dog to sit on chairs, tables or put paws up on these surfaces. Don't give your dog restaurant dishes to lick or eat off of. 3) Don't assume everyone wants to visit your dog. Other patrons or staff may be fearful or not dog friendly. Give them space and respect their feelings. 4) Please be extra nice to the staff. They work hard!
