I am fairly new to my community and want to meet other dog owners, so we can have doggy play dates, hikes etc. Also just a good way to meet like minded people.
Any ideas on how I could go about doing this? There's no dog park here (although its generally acceptable to use the baseball diamond after hours, as long as you clean up after your dog.. its all fenced in) and there are only about 5000 people who live here. Keep in mind a lot of people here are of the mentality that owning a dog means tying it up in your backyard for the rest of its life... or worse, just letting it roam around town....
Does anyone here belong to a doggy play group?
