WOLF Pilot Program Approved!
Are you a dog walker at Woodland Off-Leash Area? Have you heard of WOLF? WOLF is a new pilot, nearly ready to launch, for dog walkers that use Woodland to contribute to its well being.
Members of WOLF pay yearly dues of $100-$300 depending on usage. Dues are paid to the non-profit COLA (Citizens for Off-Leash Areas), the primary fundraiser and public support for all of Seattle Off-Leash Areas, except for Magnuson which has its own non-profit. These dues will allow us to keep the park well-maintained, and in turn will spread the word about the great service you provide Seattle dog owners. Your business card will be featured in our WOLF display in the kiosk!
Dog Walkers who use Woodland Off-Leash Area are invited to join (soon) to help support our mud-busting gravel efforts at Woodland. As a work locations for dog walkers, we hope to foster/practice a community consciousness in which we contribute to the park through our labor and funding. As members of WOLF, we remain sensitive to the presence of other individuals and their dogs also using the park by modeling open communication, cooperation, and a general attitude that’s positive and friendly. We strive to foster an atmosphere that is safe, clean, and fun for all.
WOLF members agree to adhere to the guidelines for Off-Leash Areas set forth by Seattle Parks and Recreation Department.
Members are asked to participate in at least one work party per quarter.
All members are licensed and insured.
WOLF members diligently “scoop poop” regardless of if it came from within the pack or from another’s dog(s). WOLF members strive to leave the park cleaner than it was upon arrival.
Please visit the kiosk at Woodland Off-Leash Area’s east entrance to view members of WOLF and to watch how we contribute to your park throughout the year.
DISCLAIMER: BEING RECOGNIZED AS A MEMBER OF WOLF IS IN NO WAY AN ENDORSEMENT, NOR IS IT REPRESENTATIVE OF ONE’S QUALIFICATIONS AS A DOG WALKER, HIS/HER ETHICS, APPROACH TO ANIMAL BEHAVIOR, OR BUSINESS PRACTICES.
