So good news. I heard back from an indoor dog gym called Mom and Paws Indoor Dog Park (http://momandpaws.com/) The owner Christine sent me an email today to say that they would love to host our meetup.
“We would love to host the North East Meetup. Our meetup rate is $50 or $5 per dog. Meetups are usually reserved for sat or sun mornings 10am-12-pm. We are open to the public till 4 and could also host the meetup later if prefered. April and May are completley open right now so let me know what date and I will reserve the space for you. I think it would be a great place to host! Thank you for your interest in Mom and Paws!”
Yay! So my next step is to plan to meet up with them in the next week and do a walk through the place to make sure it will be a good fit for us. Also I want to make sure the room will be reserved for just the people in the meet up. No offense, but this is a Shibas only pawty =)
I have contacted 3 other places and still waiting to hear back, incase this doesn’t work out. But this place seems really willing to host the meet up!
I have a couple questions for you all. If you could let me know a few things it might make this planning a little easier.
1) As I stated before, I am thinking maybe April/May would be good since the New England weather will (hopefully) be tame by then. What works for you? Obviously this will be a weekend date, so I’m thinking either a Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning/afternoon
2) I will need the names of each dog coming. Although I know all my #twibas, if you could send an email with the # of dogs in your pack and names, it will help!
If you guys have any questions or concerns about any of this please let me know!
Also, tell as many twibas as possible! The more the merrier!
I’m really hoping we can make this happen!
Sorry for the obnoxiously long email =)
