We set out on the hunt of puppy groups to socialise him and my husband found a small Facebook group who met every now and again in a bathroom shop in Stockbridge - I believe there was a group of around 10 who were friends with a mutual love of Daxies! After waiting a while for a meetup that never happened, the owner of the group on Facebook contacted me to say that they wouldn't be continuing with the page.
In Early 2016 I took over sole management of the Facebook group with a couple of hundred members, leading my first walk in May 2016 at Roslin Glen, Midlothian where 15 people turned up.
Since then, I have organised a walk every month of the year (taking a break in Januarys) in and around Edinburgh. With regularly updating the Facebook page, photographing our walks, creating a social media strategy around features, our numbers grew rapidly. by 2017 we had around 50 people and their dogs coming along to walks all around the Lothians and I was getting great feedback from people who enjoyed not only the organised approach but enjoyed meeting the same people and new people too, every month.
