Smile Playdate in CT?

Hi,
I'm new here. I have a 6 month old female golden who loves to run, chase, and wrestle. She is a bit on the submissive side, and we are really trying to build her confidence. We are looking for a few friendly playmates. I live in Hartford County.
Thanks

Have you tried Tails U Win in Manchester? They have puppy classes and day care. I've never had my dogs in the day care there but have heard nothing but good about theirs.

We have just short of two year old male.
He romps with a number of different dogs.
We're in Granville, MA, about 35 minutes NW of Bradley Airport.
We'd be happy to have you over for a play date in our fenced yard, or a walk in the woods.

You can try out a MeetUp group in your area.
Here's one for Goldens........and they have a hike scheduled for the 10th.
The Westchester/Fairfield Golden Retriever Meetup Group (Pleasantville, NY) - Meetup

Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend.
Inside of a dog, are various chewed pieces of things I used to own .

I'm in South Windsor, just north east of Hartford. We are still getting our newly adopted pair settled and comfortable in their new home so we are holding off on introducing them to other dogs till we are certain they are comfortable and ready...but I love the idea of maybe doing a Golden get together...South Windsor has a beautiful dog park right up the street from my house!

I live in Berlin, CT and have a 5 month old Golden Mix puppy. I think it is a great idea and have often thought of throwing the idea out there myself for a get together. South Windsor is not far from me and Toby currently goes to Tails U Win for puppy classes and day care. I am game for meeting up just about any place.

My Toby was born in the woods of Missouri and lived in a den under a bunch of tree roots with his Mama and 5 brothers and sisters for the first 6 weeks of his life. Because of that, I am always trying to expose him to other dogs and socializing him so this would be great!

There is a park that allows dogs off leash (I don't let mine off leash) called Bicentennial Park in Berlin. It is made up of a big field and then acres of hiking trails through woods. Just throwing that out there as a possibility but as I said, I am game for anywhere.

Thanks!

Nancye


Toby, my Golden mix, born 10/1/12
Dawson, my heart dog, 11/3/02 - 11/9/12
