Hello all, Ona and I had so much fun in our last meet up that I would love to see if we can have another meet up in the East Bay. Those of you who live on this side of the Bay, do you know of a gathering place as ideal as Redwood Shores? And when would it be a good day? I would like to suggest December 3rd.

I hope you are all doing well. I have been traveling the last two weeks and Ona has been staying with friends -- two different families, one week each. I miss her a lot, and also a bit anxious that our precious routines have been now disturbed. But I return next Saturday and we shall see!

Sounds like fun! Always up for Havanese play 😁. No better way to spend a few hours. How far is Fremont/Newark for the East Bay folk? I know the group has previously met in Newark.

We did meet up at Newbark in Newark a while back; it’s about a half hour from Berkeley/Oakland…. I don’t mind driving but my bigger concern is a dog park given the (dog) viruses going around. I can’t think of anywhere quite as good around here as Redwood shores, but let’s give it some thought. We should be around 12/3.

Zoie and I will attend but I definitely prefer not to go to a dog park.

Are any of the dogs puppies still? Ours will be 4 months by Dec 3rd. We're in West Marin. We might be able to make it but we don't like dog parks. ;-) Anyone else here from Marin? Joya deVivre, Dixie deVivre's mom.
Ona was the youngest at our last play date and she was 4-5 months I think? Then there’s a group that turned 1 in June, some that are closer to 2, and some older!

I was going to say Piedmont park where we met up, but I just looked and it’s on-leash only in that nice grassy area (oops), and you need a city permit for the rest.

Cesar Chavez in Berkeley and Albany Bulb beach are both off-leash friendly and our go-to spots, but they’re also kind of open areas that don’t have seating etc. I’d say we could do it here, but our yard is tiny so not very good for zoomies or wrestling for more than a a couple of dogs.

Has anyone been here? https://www.bringfido.com/attraction/3726

there is the small dog park in alameda. That is where I usually go and my pup Pablo loves it. Ice also seen dog meetups at point Isabel, and I frequent that place often too.
albany bulb is also good and not as crowded as point Isabel.

Dec 3 is a good date for us to meet up. Pablo and I Looking forward to meeting everyone!
Rita, did we meet you and Pablo at a play date at Jennifer’s house in Oakland (with smidgen?) I have the little black and white parti girl. 😊

Point Isabel is beautiful but definitely can get very crowded w big dogs… what do others think of Albany bulb or another idea?

Am not familiar with Albany Bulb myself— looks to be about 40 min from where I am in Fremont, but doable. Was hoping there was someplace in between, like Hayward or San Leandro, but I don’t personally know of any spots. If no other suggestions, we should be fine to make the trek.

Definitey game for either of those… I just don’t know them well! If someone does let’s discuss!

Yes, hI! That was us! Jolene right???
Albany bulb works well for us. I took Pablo there once and he loved it. He jumped into the ocean 🌊 which kinda surprised me as he doesn’t really like to get wet!
Pablo and I look forward to seeing you again soon

Jasper is taking a class and the last session is Dec 3rd from 11-12 in Berkeley (Live Oak Park) so for me it depends upon what time. One thing to keep in mind is that it will be colder by Dec 3rd. Probably a high in the low 60s and it is windier near the bay. Most public places that allow dogs will be more crowded on the weekend so I started looking for a business park with a grassy area in hopes of finding something similar to Redwood Shores. I checked a potential area in Alameda but no luck. Some schools are another potential option. Where I used to work the gates were open on the weekend and some people brought their dogs to run off leash. The main challenge is that sometimes there is baseball or soccer practice.

I spent a little time researching leash laws in the east bay. Most cities require dogs to be on leash in public places unless they are in a dog park. I think Albany may have a more liberal law but I'm not sure if I'm interpreting it correctly.

I started thinking more about private locations and came across this Sniffspot. You can rent someone's private fenced yard. Oakland, California Dog Parks for Rent | Sniffspot. I checked out Oakland because that's where I happen to live. Most are $10-$15 per dog per hour.

Yes, that’s a great thought— there is a nice gated grassy area near one of our local
Elementary schools, Bringhurst Elementary that may be perfect as I don’t believe they use it for soccer or anything (new development), but I suspect it may be too much of a trek for some of you in the East Bay, correct?. It’s in the south portion of Fremont. Just had a thought— do we have a rain contingency plan? Variables of winter weather…
