Pug Closeup


The Full Story

Whoof is a new concept for the state of Maryland: a place for both dogs and their owners to socialize, with perks like a doggie splash pad, organized play times for dogs of different ages, access to special services like training and agility classes, exercise classes for owners and their dogs, visits from local food vendors and artisans, yappy hours with local craft beer and wine, and more! And all with a social purpose to promote dog adoption and support our local rescue organizations and fosters.  It is socialization with a social mission.  That's Whoof!


Whoof is registered as a Benefit LLC, which means we put our mission first. Our mission is not only to create a place where dogs in need of a home might find one.  We are also about creating a place where pups are an integral part of family life. Whoof will partner with a registered 501(c)(3) organization (Friends of Whoof), who will work with local rescue organizations to plan adoption events, and evaluate adoptable dogs for honorary memberships.  

Whoof will operate as a private club so it won't be for everyone. But if you are interested in joining a community of dog lovers, where play is more regulated, but the perks are plentiful, then Whoof is for you.  Whoof is hoping to open in the spring of 2020, and is looking for like-minded companies, organizations and individuals who share the vision and are interested in joining as a vendor, a partnering rescue, or part of our staff. If you share the vision of Well-being and Homefulness Of Our Furry friends, then reach out to us today!
