Welcome to the
Grateful Dogs of Juneau
UPDATED March 17!!
CBJ Docks and Harbors Board is considering
the adoption of a registration requirement for pets
(dogs) living aboard boats in the CBJ harbors. There will
be a fee associated with the registration requirement.
The Docks and Harbors Board is also considering the adoption of
a code of conduct for pet owners in the harbor areas.
The CBJ Docks &
Operations/Planning Committee will consider the latest
version of the code of conduct. The
committee will meet Wednesday, March 18, at
5 pm in CBJ Room 224.
The new version of the
code of conduct became available before noon, Tuesday,
March 17. The latest version of the pet owners code of
conduct is only slightly different from the previous
proposal presented by Docks & Harbors staff. The
latest version continues to endorse a punitive approach
rather than the more encompassing, aspirational approach
offered by Grateful Dogs.
The Board is currently scheduled to adopt the
registration requirement, registration fee, and pet owners code
of conduct at its March meeting.
