Seattle Parks and Recreation asked COLA to compile a list of 3-4 possible pilot locations per council district for new OLAs. We have completed this for most districts, but we need more locations in Council Districts:
Please click on the link and fill out the survey let us know what parks, land banks, or public open spaces (like SDOT, City Light, SPU, or WSDOT land) you would like to see turned into a dog park in those areas and why!
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.
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.
Seattle City Officials have a DRAFT Master Plan for People, Dogs, and Parks that will definitely impact Seattle dog parks. PLEASE JOIN OUR LIST BELOW TO MAKE SURE TO STAY UP TO DATE!
