Recommended Posts

This thread will be a home to the many regularly scheduled greyhound get-togethers that people have throughout the year. (Non-greys are accepted, too!) If you have a regular meeting time for your greys or a group of greys at a formal dog park, please post it here. You never know how many greys might show up!

 

Regularly Scheduled Greyhound Get Togethers

United States

Minnesota

City: Minneapolis

Park: Lake Harriet, meet on the lake path near the Rose Gardens

Park Location: From 35W, take 46th St. exit, go west on 46th to East Lake Harriet Parkway, then turn right (north). Park at or near 43rd St. The Rose Gardens will be on your right, the lake is on your left. / Google! map

Days: Every Sunday at 2pm, weather permitting.

Other Notes: No appointment necessary, just show up! This walk is just under 3 miles, but is NOT an aerobic exercise. The pace is pretty slow, good for chatting with other grey-owners. :) There is a nice spot to let your hound wade/lounge in the water on hot days.

 

Texas

City: Fort Worth

Park: Fort Woof Dog Park (inside Gateway Park)

Park Location: Beach Street just north of I-30 and just east of I-35 / Google! map

Contact: Bob & Denise Petrovic bdpetrovic@sbcglobal.net or

Join us for the first Play Group of the season! Let your hound(s) run and play for an hour indoors, away from the mud and rain. Meet and socialize with fellow Greyhound owners and their families. (Check out the facilities - if you are interested, they hold beginner fly ball/agility classes on a regular basis during the week, and they are a great bonding experience and for you & your hound(s)!). Bring your favorite Greyhound(s) for an hour of mingling with their friends.

 

Cost: $8.00 a dog

 

PLEASE remember to bring your dog's muzzle. If you don't have a muzzle you may purchase one from G.O. at Windy City for $14.00. DA RULES:

 

All dogs must be muzzled in the playing areas.

Take your hound(s) to the potty pen before entering. A mid-playgroup potty break is also a greyt idea.

Keep an eye on your hound(s) during the hour. Younger/older ones may need several potty breaks. There are paper towels and clean-up materials available for you to clean up your hound(s) accidents.

Please try to bring exact change, if possible.

Bring your friends and their favorite Greyhounds. They need not be a G.O. member (just Greyhounds!), the more the merrier!

(Please R.S.V.P. so we can get an approximate dog count)

I would love to bring Jock, but he is very sensitive about his mouth and nose; I know that a muzzle would make him miserable. Also, he has severe osteoarthritis (from a poorly set hind leg), as well as fear issues. He probably wouldn't run with the other greys. Even with his greyhound friends, his way of playing is to watch the others. However, he loves seeing other greyhounds. Would it be ok to come and sit on the sidelines? If not, do you know of any other greyhound events in the area, or other places we can meet greys and their people? (Our adoption group dissolved before we really got to know anyone.)
