Welcome to the Grateful Dogs of Juneau.

 

News

Airport Dike Trail is a competent voice control trail.   At its November 8 meeting, the CBJ Assembly adopted an ordinance that would allow dogs on the Airport Dike Trail to be under competent voice control.  The ordinance was adopted unanimously by the CBJ Assembly and took effect on December 8, 2010.   Dogs that do not promptly respond to voice commands or that are not under control must still be on leash when using the Airport Dike Trail.  The Grateful Dogs have actively encouraged, promoted, and supported competent voice control for the Dike Trail for the last year.

 

Treadwell Ditch Trail will be closed to trapping beginning on July 1, 2011.  The Alaska Board of Game unanimously accepted the proposal by Grateful Dogs to close the Treadwell Ditch Trail to trapping.   Thanks to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game for its support for the proposal.  Without the support of the Department, it would have been much more difficult to persuade the Board of Game to accept the proposal.

Upcoming Events

June  (tent.) -- Grateful Dogs Board Meeting  5 pm  Tuesday NCADD Conference Room Downtown

 

Meetings of Grateful Dogs of Juneau.  The board of Grateful Dogs of Juneau usually meets on the first Tuesday of each month.  All members of Grateful Dogs are encouraged to attend.

 


 

Summer dog regulations for CBJ sport fields and for CBJ parks will start in March, 2011

The Summer regulations for sport fields take effect March 15, 2011. 

The Summer regulations for Sandy Beach and the Rain Forest Trail take effect May 1, 2011.   The regulations establish specific area and seasonal requirements for on-leash, leash-optional, and no-dog areas.   Signs at each location describe the regulations that are in effect in each area.  The regulations for Sandy Beach are complicated because parts of the beach in front of the picnic shelters are on-leash until you reach the stream.   However, you must pay attention to the posted signs because the message on the signs determines what regulations are in effect at that location.

The Grateful Dogs Of Juneau reminds dog owners to read the signs that are posted at CBJ parks and sport fields for up-to-date information on the regulations that are in effect.  Click here to view the regulations.  If you have questions about the rules for dogs in your favorite CBJ park or recreation area, contact the CBJ Parks and Recreation Department.


Clean up after your dog: The Grateful Dogs of Juneau reminds dog owners to pick up after their dogs. In the last 36 months, dog owners have made great strides in promoting a dog friendly community by cleaning up after their dogs.  If we continue to clean up after our dogs, we can make Juneau an even more attractive place to live and a more dog friendly community.

KEEPING YOUR DOG SAFE

Keep you and your dog safe after dark:  With long winter nights, the Grateful Dogs Of Juneau reminds dog owners to use reflective clothing and safety lights both on themselves and on their dogs, when walking or jogging with their dogs after dark.  Dogs and pedestrians that are not visible to drivers are a hazard.   Dog owners should do all that they can to keep themselves and their dogs safe when walking or jogging after dark.  Appropriate safety clothing and lights for you and your dog are readily available at several stores in the community.
