What we're about
The Calgary Small and Toy Breed Play Group is where owners of all small and toy breed dogs can get together and have a safe place to play and socialize. This is a great time for our little ones to have a blast playing with each other. It is also a great time for the owner to share advice.
This is a monthly playgroup held for dogs 30lbs and under. The pups get an opportunity for unstructured playtime with other small dogs, with no fear of getting squished by larger furry friends.
The meet-ups are held in an indoor facility with one large room for playing. Ensure your dogs are toileted prior to entering the facility please.
Upon arrival, members will find the organizer to pay their dues, and from then on, it's playtime! Chairs, water-bowls, and poop-bags are set out by the organizer for member and dog use. There is a bathroom onsite, and smoking indoors is not permitted.
The charge for playgroups is usually 7 dollars for the first dog and $3 for each additional dog, but this is subject to change. Your admission dollars go toward covering the costs of space rental (which varies per venue), as well as organizer fees issued by meet-up.com, supplies, and other miscellaneous costs such as advertising.
If your dog is prone to "marking", please consider a belly band, or similar deterrent.
Dog owners are responsible for supervising their dogs at all times. This includes cleaning up after them as required as well as intervening should there be any behavioral issues. Feed your dog, and other dogs, during a meet up is strictly forbidden, as we do not want issues with any dog that has allergies.
By signing up for the group e-mails, members will be alerted when meet-ups are scheduled. You can then RSVP, which helps the organizer keep track of how many members will be attending. Please remember, RSVP's can be changed online, and no-shows will be handled in accordance with our no-show policy. (See our other pages). RSVP's can be changed up until 3 hours before your meetup starts.
Any questions or concerns can be emailed to Pam McCarthy, the organizer of the Calgary Small and Toy Breed Play Group. Thanks so much for reading, and we hope to meet you and your pooches at our next meet-up!
