2023 Autumn / Winter Meetup Reservations Now Open
free stitch is pleased to announce reservations are now open for our 2023 Autumn / Winter Meetup Festivals.
Every year free stitch holds special Meetup events for a variety of dog breeds where owners and dogs can enjoy a wide range of activities ranging from agility competitions to raffles and tombolas.
Funds raised from participation fees will be used to support charitable activities that raise awareness of issues facing the pet industry in Japan. We hope that by having more people participate in the event, we can help enrich the lives of everyone and their dogs.

At our Meetups, we offer training and obedience sessions conducted by our regular specialist trainers from around Japan who have years of experience in giving advice on a wide range of breeds.
Held in carefully selected outdoor locations, owners, dogs, and their families can enjoy a full day of fresh air communication, and play while taking in some of the beautiful Japanese nature sights.
