Collie Connections are informal gatherings held across Canada each year, generally in the spring and fall, at off-leash doggie parks by people who love the Collie breed. They are not a rescue event but Collie Rescue Network does help promote the event in any way we can. Collie Connections are groups of people who love Collies and spend an afternoon with other Collie fans. You’ll find Rough Collies, Smooth Collies, rescue Collies, show Collies, Collie mixes and some “not a Collie” dogs there. Everyone and anyone is invited to a Collie Connection!
If you would like to hold a Collie Connection in your area, please let us know and we can help promote your event. You need to email us with a date, time and the off-leash dog park you want the Connection to happen at and we will help by letting our volunteers and adopters in that area know. We’ll email any local Collie people we know and also put up information about the Connection on our website, on our facebook page and in our newsletter. We also put an ad in kijiji about the event and will email you posters you can print off and hang up in your area to let other Collie fans know about the event!
