The Parks Department has released its DRAFT MASTER PLAN for what do about dog off-leash areas.

IT’S EVEN WORSE THAN EXPECTED:

  • They plan to do little more than continue the same failed policy of the last 15 years
  • NO NEW BEACHES
  • Increase ticketing and raise fines!  

They are ignoring the results of the $104,000 study. This study included a survey, focus groups, and the nationwide research about how other cities’ manage their dogs. 

 

 

2016 has been a banner year for COLA.

  • We hired our first executive director
  • Successfully lobbied to add a 14 point addendum to the dog park master plan
  • Proposed 21 OLA pilot locations to Seattle Parks
  • Overturned the moratorium on adding new dog beaches

All of this was made possible by the support of people like you. In 2017 we are planning to build on this success by continuing to advocate for our off-leash areas, and by launching our new education program that provides free resources to all dog owners in the city.

Education Program
NEW!

7.6 million animals are surrendered to shelters each year in the US. The #1 reason? Behavior issues and lack of training. More often than not, bad dog behavior like excessive barking, destruction, and even aggression can be traced back to a need for exercise and socialization. In additional to advocating for, managing, and maintaining Seattle’s OLAs, COLA is launching a free education program for dog owners.
