Speed Dating for Dog Lovers

Dog owners and their pets gathered in Randolph, NJ for speed dating dog-lover style at the Morris K-9 Campus. Dog lovers socialized in six-minute intervals in hopes of finding a romantic connection at Thursday’s event. About 40 humans circulated through the crowd. They carried Margarita glasses in one hand and leashes in the other.

It was the first speed dating event for the training center, and attendants are hooked on the concept. Geri Curran of Cranford says that if she does date, she wants to spend time with someone who loves animals. “You can tell a lot about a person by their dog — by the way they treat their dog,” said Curran.

  1. We could use something like this in ma country… great idea 😀 dog lovers meeting dog lovers.

    Happy Valentines to you Fudge, Sola & Nigel + Neil 😀

  2. I would love to see this type of event also used as a dog-related fundraiser, such as for the local humane society, or for example a fund to help fixed income seniors/disabled with dog food, dog supplies and vet care. In fact I think I’ll make that suggestion to our local Humane Society and ask a dog-friendly reporter who writes on animal issues in the local Weekly to float this idea to readers.

  3. I think this concept is a wonderful idea!!

    When will another speed dating dog-lover style event take place in New Jersey again? I hope in the very near future.

    I look forward to receiving your reply.
