What we're about

The San Diego Shiba Inu Meetup is a play-date and information sharing meetup.

Utilizing our events as well as message board, we hope to enrich the lives of our pups and share Shiba knowledge.

We also hope our members feel free to make meetup suggestions for items ranging from play-date venues to meetup activities as well as have a wonderful time participating in our events.

We enthusiastically welcome potential Shiba owners who want to come to the meetups and spend some time with Shibas. We encourage potential owners to do their research before getting a Shiba, as they can be very challenging for new dog owners.

If you are looking for a new Shiba to add to your pack, please consider adopting a rescue dog first.

San Diego Shiba Inu Meetup Group Rules:

At Meetups:
Dogs attending meetups must be fully vaccinated with a current rabies certificate, DHPP and bordetella shots.
They should preferably be spayed/neutered (if not, please use good judgment with regards to your dog's behavior.)
Do not bring your dog if she is in heat, or if he/she has diahrrea (or is otherwise sick).
Snarky dogs and dogs picking fights will be asked to leave the dog park.
Owners must be in full control of their dogs at all times.
Always clean up after your dog. Please always bring doggy pick up bags for your dog(s) and pick up after your dog. Not all places will have pick up bags for you.
Please ask the dog's owner before giving out treats. Many dogs have allergies that you may not be aware of.
Meetups are organized by volunteers, and nobody is compensated for organizing. We do it for the fun of it!

Posting on the site:
Avoid offensive or abusive language.
No spamming.
Our meetup group does not support backyard breeders or puppy mills. Do not post puppies for sale or breeding/stud requests on this site. If you encounter such a post please contact an organizer or assistant organizer.
Please remain an active member by participating in message board discussions as well as meetup events. Inactive members may be removed. (They may rejoin at any time.)
If you feel something inappropriate has been posted contact an organizer (or assistant organizer) immediately.

These rules have been adopted from the Los Angeles/Orange County Shiba Inu Meetup Group. The rules are originally from the Toronto Shiba Inu Meeup Group.

Fiesta Island walk. Leashed or unleashed Shibas.

Fiesta Island Off Leash Dog Park

Fiesta Island is a great location for your Shibas to run around and explore the large terrain and play in the water, if they’re up for that! We will walk the perimeter starting at 10:10am at the double gate. Park in the large parking lot outside of the fence. Meet at the double gates. See pics. The park is mostly fenced in with the exception of two areas on the beach. Feel free to walk with your shibas on leash if you’re not comfortable with off-leashed. If you’re late, just walk along the beaches and you will eventually find us.

Walk for Saving Shibas Rescue
Needs a date and time

Needs a location

We have found a new walking for rescue app, ResQwalk (http://resqwalk.com/), to use for our walking to donate to rescue. ResQwalk actually posts how much they donate to each rescue per month (and gives a running total of how much they have donated in all). You can download the FREE app from the link above (it will let you pick from Android or Apple and will direct you to the corresponding app store). All you need to do is create a free account, select Saving Shibas as the rescue to walk for, hit the big purple button, and start walking! Make sure the rescue you have set is Saving Shibas. We are making the switch to ResQwalk because we found out that Wooftrax has not donated any amount of money to Saving Shibas since we announced the app to our Meetup members. Some of the perks to the switch to ResQwalk are: -(As stated before) ResQwalk tells you exactly how much they are donating to each rescue -ResQwalk does not time out after 20 min of "no movement detected" (Which means, if your walk is paused for a bit because someone is interested in your shiba, it will still continue to count miles when you start walking again.) -ResQWalk will pause your walk but automatically resume once speeds go lower than 45mph, which means, you can go cycling around the neighborhood, and it will still count.
