Useful Links

Here are some useful links for Ridgeback owners!

Maryland: Wheaton/ Silver Spring area
While not meeting on a regular/formal basis, there are 3-4 ridgeback owners in this area, and we see each other in the Wheaton Regional Dog Park in Silver Spring, evenings around 5:00 p.m., and in the Spring/Summer a little later, around 6 p.m.

Virginia: Arlington
While nothing organized we have quite a few ridgebacks that come through our local Shirlington Dog Park, just off of I-395 in Arlington VA. The most likely time to run into other ridgebacks seems to be between 1000-1200 on the weekends. The nice thing about Shirlington is that besides the dog park there is Dog Wash place right next to it and across the street is a shopping and eating area. In that shopping area you have another nice dog store and several places to grab a bite to eat or a cup of coffee before or after your dog park visit. When the weather is nicer most of the restaurants also have significant amounts of outdoor seating and are fairly dog friendly.
