Hello all. I have a small shih tzu male boy "max" I take for walks and sometimes to the wicker park dog park. I would like to see if we can form a sort of dog park club. Schedule meet ups to watch our dogs and sip latte!

I suggest the WP dog park until and if the Logan Square one opens.

  • I love this idea. I have a little dog too and she gets pretty overwhelmed by all of the bigger dogs that are usually at the dog parks. There's also a little park on Cortland and Leavitt where I let Scrappy run around. It's grassy and would work great if there weren't more than 5 or so dogs.

    Sounds like a good spot!

    I have a chihuahua and love the idea. I don't live too far from the park so I'm in for the club idea. I also know that my BFF will be interested as well.

  • This is an awesome idea!! l am right around the corner from Wicker Park and I take my little Yorkie there all the time, he is very shy but I think this would be great for him to have some buddies to hang out with:)

  • MJH In LoganSquare West Logan Sqr.

    It sounds like it is becoming the small dog park club! I am totally fine with.

    I like the idea of an off the beaten path park like suzy suggested too eventually.

    What time is good? I go on the weekends mostly but also can do in the evening Thursday and Fridays.

    After 6 PM is ok for me on weekdays. Weekends are better unless I have something going on.

  • Weekends in mornings are good for me but afternnons can work too. During the week after 6pm is best,

    How about we start on Sunday at 10am. Not to early and we can all get a coffee. Then we can work out future schedule.

  • Sunday at 10 am is good. At Wicker Park, right?

  • MJH In LoganSquare West Logan Sqr.

    Yes Wicker Park dog park 10 am Sunday! I will have the small orange radio playing.

  • I won't be able to make it Sunday mornings, but since I work from home I'm usually pretty flexible during weekends and week days. If you all meet up again, post it here and I'd love to make it!

  • MJH In LoganSquare West Logan Sqr.

    What was the name of your park Suzy? We could do a week night one there and a weekend one at WP.

  • It's called Erhler Park. It's on W Cortland St. just west of N Leavitt St. It's technically not a dog park, but my dog is small enough and well trained enough that I let her off leash and she does fine.

  • MJH In LoganSquare West Logan Sqr.

    Let's alternate or at least try out the other park during a week night. I'm good after 6:30 pm on Thursday and Friday's

  • This sounds fun! My pooch and I will try to make it Sunday. If you're looking for an "off the beaten path" spot there's a tiny park at Noble and Blackhawk that would be perfect. I think it's technically a dog park, but I've rarely seen anyone use it. It's just a small fenced in patch of land.

    Can't make it this Sunday, but I also love the idea and would love to join in. My little chihuahua mix would love it!

  • MJH In LoganSquare West Logan Sqr.

    I will be taking my boy max over to Erhler Park tonight at 6:30 for anyone who wants to drop by.

    Look for the Orange radio!

  • Hi I wasn't able to make it Sunday morning. Did you make future plans to meet again??

  • MJH In LoganSquare West Logan Sqr.

    No problem. I was there but not sure if anyone else showed up. I had my lil square orange radio. I will go next Sunday too. Time TBD
