The Parks Department has released its DRAFT MASTER PLAN for what do about dog off-leash areas.
IT’S EVEN WORSE THAN EXPECTED:
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.
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!
