Collegedale Dog Lovers Social Group

Join group here > Collegedale Dog Lovers Social Group

We are a group of Dog Lovers within Collegedale, Ooltewah, Apison and the surrounding area that meet at the FREE off-leash Collegedale Dog Park. We are a group for ALL dog owners of any breed and size.

Purpose of this group:
• Post/Share your dogs play times to meet with other members at the park.
• Ask questions and share experiences with other local dog owners.
• Share information on lost and found pets in the area.
• Discuss future ideas and plans for the park.

If you prefer to walk or hike with your pet there are several local options. Feel free to post meet dates and times for these activities as well:

• The City of Collegedale maintains Wolftever Creek Greenway; a family and pet friendly paved trail with 5 pet stations throughout. If your dog loves water there are several spots to play in the creek along the way.

• Southern Adventist University Biology Trails accessible off University Dr offer miles of trails throughout the mountain landscape behind the college.

• Enterprise South Nature Park (VW) offers many miles of trails for whatever fun you’re seeking with your four legged friends. Refer to park maps on-site to know the difficulty or length of the trail before you venture off.

We thank each of you for your support and thoroughly hope your dog has fun through our Meet & Play social events.

If you have concerns, please feel free to contact one of the page administrators. “Admins” can be found by clicking on “Members”, then “Admins”.
