I think it would be so much fun to have a big group of Golden's together.

We love to hike in West Thompson Dam in Putnam CT so much that we will even drive from Maine for the day!

CT Play date-roll call for interest, date and location?

I am willing to organize a Connecticut play date if everyone who is interested sends me a private message. If you have a date and place that you can suggest then I will organize it all under one posting or PM you back with the info and ask for your input.

It seems we are scattered over the state and LJilly28 would even drive from Maine to hike at the West Thompson Dam in Putnam, CT! I have never been to West Thompson Lake but it must be amazing! From the postings so far, I see that the following have been suggested:
  1. Hike at the West Thompson Lake and Dam, Putnam, CT
  2. Renting a room at Tails U Win where I train in Manchester. I don't think that it is terribly expensive.
  3. Glastonbury dog park (no dogs under 4 months allowed)
  4. Bicentennial Park in Berlin, CT. Has a large field area and hiking trails through woods and ponds. I live in Berlin and it is located in the exact center of the state (no joke..the stake marking the center is on my road!)
  5. South Windsor dog park
Another suggestion is that I have a friend who belongs to the Oxford Obedience Club in Oxford, CT. She may be able to rent a ring/room area for us a very reasonable cost. However, this may be a long haul for people living north of Hartford.

I am not really comfortable in letting my dog off leash unless he is in an enclosed area. If we did a dog park, I most likely would keep a 20 foot long line on him. He is still in puppy kindergarten and does not have a reliable recall. However, if met in one of the training rings/rooms he would be fine off leash. He goes to daycare every week and plays with up to 15 dogs at a time.


Please let me know if you are still interested and I will try my best to figure something out. I thought a date in April would be best as it will hopefully be warmer by then.

Avon, CT here! I have 2 golden girls, Sadie and Annabelle. Sadie is 12 and Annabelle is 4 months.

We'd love to attend a meetup!

Hi-I was the one that said I would organize it but I got sidelined with a very bad knee. It is much better and I think it would be great if we can get together. The biggest issue I see is where to have it. I would want my pup on a long line if we were not in a contained area. Even though I am not a big fan of dog parks I do hear the South Windsor dog park is great with responsible owners . Maybe that is a possibility?

I am open to suggestions as to places where we can meet up. With my knee I can't really hike very far on uneven ground or I could suffer a major set back. So, for me personally, hiking with the dogs would not be possible for me.

Let me know.

Nancye

I like the idea of meeting somewhere that's fenced in too as one of my Golden's doesn't have a very solid recall. I don't know where in CT everyone is located, but I have a fenced in backyard and everyone's welcome to come over. Its not as large as a dog park, but I know some people don't feel comfortable going to dog parks. I live in Norwalk, CT. I'm willing to drive anywhere in CT. What does everyone think ?

That would be so much fun, it'd be nice to see them all play together outside of a structured classroom. This is class 5 so we have one more week AH! I'm so nervous. Frank think's Oliver will be fine though - just have to work on the supervised separation since Oliver's a bit of a velcro dog. Will we be seeing you and Liza in hunting class today?
