Monthly: BARKS & BOOKS

Do you love small dogs? do you love coffee, cake, great company, and books?! Then join us at Leashes End each month as we discuss a new dog-themed book.  Send an email to risa@leashesend.org; call or text 202-596-6289; or use the Groups Place site to get the date and the book. Small, well-behaved dogs are welcome!  Following the discussion we take the dogs for a romp on Leashes End’s extensive, fenced in grounds.

New Volunteer Orientation

Due to the pandemic, we’ve had to rethink how we use volunteers.  This is to ensure everyone’s safety.  If you are interested in volunteering here at Leashes End, we can set up a special orientation visit.  We’ll not only go over how to assist our senior pets, but safety mitigations, such as hand hygiene, mask wearing, and social distancing.  Contact Risa at Risa@LeashesEnd.org or text message to 202-596-6289 to set something up.

Small Dog Social Gatherings

Leashes End is proud to host the Miniature Pinschers & Friends Club. Organized in October 2012, the Miniature Pinschers & Friends Club is for fun-loving minpins, active chihuahuas, chi-pins, pomeranians, miniature dachshunds and other like-minded little dogs.  We get together once a month for easy walks, fun at the park and other interesting activities in the Bethesda/DC metro area.The club provides a great way to get to know other small dog owners and have a good time with our little canines. Leashes End has nearly 3 acres of fenced-in grass where the dogs can run around safely, giving their humans some peace of mind while they nosh and socialize. Does this sound like a club for you and your small dog? Then sign up on GroupsPlace.com.
