Small Dog Bark & Sniff Club

About | Visit or Join

If you have a friendly, adventurous little dog who likes to get out and about, you have come to the right place! The Small Dog Bark & Sniff Club was formed in October 2010 and is specifically for toy breed and small dogs under 15 lbs. who enjoy hanging out with dogs their own size.

We meet once a month for easy on-leash walks to explore neighborhoods and parks in Bethesda or upper northwest DC. The walks will often include visits to coffee shops and dining at dog friendly restaurants. We also have occasional field trips for fun activities in other parts of the metro area.

We walk all year long but our meetups are dependent on the weather. Walks will be canceled if it is raining, snowing heavily, extremely hot or extremely cold. Your organizer will email you at least 2 hours in advance if a cancellation is necessary.

Membership Requirements
For identification purposes, your profile photo must be of your dog or you with your dog.

Your screen name should be your name or the name of your dog – no business names, odd nicknames or anonymous “user” names.

Club Rules

1.  No retractable leashes please.

2.  Come prepared with water for your dog and plastic bags for picking up.

3.  Participate–We regularly remove members who fail to attend any events in any 6 month period. Sorry, but there is no point in joining our group if you don’t have time to participate.

4.  Dues–We do collect $1.00 dues for each event that you attend. The dues go toward paying the website fee–and we want something in reserve for those months where we might have to cancel our walk because of bad weather.

5.  No advertising–Our group is purely social and advertisements for businesses, services, puppies for sale, breedmates or dogs for give up are not permitted.
