Massachusetts Vizsla Hike/Walk

Is there a common location for those of us in MA to get our Vs together for a romp? Haven't seen one posted but figured I'd ask in case anyone is local - I'm in central MA, not far from Worcester on 495 in Bolton.

Re: Massachusetts Vizsla Hike/Walk

Funny, I was just thinking of writing a post to see if anyone wanted to gather on the South Shore (Hingham/Cohasset area).

Whenever Gracie and I go out, we hear news of other V puppies in the area. If you are lurking here, please contact me! We are actually headed out to meet one new puppy friend this afternoon.

I'm glad to travel for a walk, too, although I'm afraid that Worcester will usually be out of range with carsick-prone kids! :-(.

Thanks,
Victoria

Re: Massachusetts Vizsla Hike/Walk

I live out in Western Mass, but I do occasionally see on the Central New England Vizsla club Facebook page (Fans of the Vizsla Club of Central New England) that a group gets together occasionally (have seen plans for Salisbury Beach, Ashland State Park, Woodsam Farm). These would be a bit of a haul for us (although if a date ever worked out for us, I would love to make the trip) - not sure how close/feasible for you. I believe lots of the club members live out towards Eastern Ma, so you might be able to make some contacts via the club.

Re: Massachusetts Vizsla Hike/Walk

We live in a suburb of Boston, but are generally happy to make the trek to spend some time with Vizslas

I've been to Ashland State park with my Vizsla and it is great! Not too crowded either...let me know if you organize something.

Re: Massachusetts Vizsla Hike/Walk

I'll do some research to see where a good location might be for a gathering that's central to everyone. Somewhere that's off-leash friendly would be ideal.

Re: Massachusetts Vizsla Hike/Walk

dcteague, Foxboro has this great, big forest where dogs can run off leash - F. Gilbert Hills State Forest. They do hunting there Mon - Sat, Sundays not allowed. However, you can hear the firing range nearby when there is a practice, and it might be spooky to younger pups. I know it might sound selfish because it's right in our area, but it is a great place, a little rocky, not too many people, some mountain bikers, lots of trails - small, big, challenging, not so challenging.

We are always up for new trail exploration and don't mind to travel at all. Let us know what you find!

Re: Massachusetts Vizsla Hike/Walk

I second Suliko's suggestion! We actually just met Suliko and Sophie there a couple of weeks ago and had a great time! Pippa was completely wiped out afterwards and I would be happy to meet anyone else there again It's a great place for dogs to spend a couple of hours!

Re: Massachusetts Vizsla Hike/Walk

Pippa,

Not sure where you live exactly but we live in Framingham and go to Callahan State Park all the time. It has great trails and a huge field where the dogs can go off leash and just play, play, play. There is usually a good amount of dogs there, but never any V's!!! I have heard Ashland State Park has a Vizsla group, but we have yet to check it out.

Re: Massachusetts Vizsla Hike/Walk

Our walker recently notified me of a group of V owners that are doing periodic walks in Boxborough - last time they met, there were about 8 V's - all female. I'm hoping to make it out next time, but if I hear about another one, I'll let you know where/when and we can get a larger group together.
