Meetup.com

I live on Long Island and I'd love to get my dogs together with other Havanese to play. There's a dog park I like in Massapequa that would make a good meeting place and I'm sure there are other good parks around I don't know about yet. If I started a group on Meetup.com, would anybody be interested? Has anyone done that yet? I was wondering if more than one person could post on it saying they were going to be somewhere for other Havie owners to join them or if just one person has to be "in charge". I tend to be very spur of the moment when we do the park, but I'll have to learn to change that. So let me know what you think!

HI,
Yes! I have a meet up group for Hampton Roads, a friend of mine and myself sort of run it, We do get a fair amount of people joining.
They do charge your credit card twice a year. I know you can set it up where people who join your group pay dues, or when you have a play date..you could ask for donations to keep the group running (some people do that) I've just paid it, but the bad thing about meet up is that is isn't free to the person that sets up the group, lol I guess its worth it to me, I've made a lot of really great people through my Gucci girl. The friends I've made..worth every penny

I've run meetup groups. You can have co-organizers or additional event planners.

In my experience, folks would be very willing to chip in on the expenses - either by a small charge to join the group, or $2 to attend an event - something like that.

If you set up something on Long Island I'd love to come if I can make my schedule work!

Hi! Just saw your post and was wondering if you could recommend a decent dog groomer in Virginia Beach? I've tried to do some tidying up of Chula's hair but it grows fast and will probably need professional help soon!
