    Hello! Since getting our dog Piper in March this year I have been looking for a Derby dog group where I can walk Piper with other dogs and owners, she loves other dogs and she gets on great with them so I would love for her to be able to meet with them. I have looked on the usual social media's and even googled it but nothing's come up.

    So any Derby/Derbyshire dog owners out there that can help?

    You don't say what if any breed Piper is? If she is a particular breed or even something like a lurcher, look for a FB site dedicated to such. They usually have meet up's in National Trust places or large parks. Hope you find something, nothing better than a nice group walk, especially in Derbyshire. Oh check out dog training groups too even join a training class as you will meet a lot of like minded people at those.

    Hi, thank you for your advice! Piper is a Saluki x Greyhound so I've searched for greyhound and lurcher groups on FB and even googled them, I've even looked at the RGT website. I'm at a loss! I have friends in other cities (too far to take piper) that are part of groups for sighthounds so I thought there would surely be something for derby or Derbyshire.

    I just checked out the Lurcher Link Rescue Facebook site for you & there were a couple of threads on there talking about people's saluki greyhound crosses with photo's. Its not just a rescue Facebook site. Check it out, read a few things, join if its a closed site if it sounds interesting, and ask on there about possible walking groups on there.

    Thank you so much for your help! I will check that page out, I never thought of looking at rescue pages. I could probably search for some Derbyshire lurcher/greyhound rescue pages as well.
