Welcome to the

Grateful Dogs of Juneau

WHY GRATEFUL DOGS?

Grateful Dogs is about you and your dog in the out of doors in Juneau.  Grateful Dogs advocates on behalf of responsible dog owners in Juneau to maintain access to public trails, beaches, parks, and open spaces.

 

Grateful Dogs believes in multiple use of public areas.  Grateful Dogs believes that responsible dog owners and other members of the public can co-exist in public spaces.

 

Grateful Dogs seeks to be a responsible and representative voice in the community on behalf of responsible dog owners.

 

Grateful Dogs devotes much of its efforts and attention to the issue of dog poop in the community, not by choice but as a matter of necessity.  Dog poop is the primary issue that divides the dog owners and the non-dog owning community in Juneau.  Abandoned dog poop is the primary motivation behind efforts to ban or otherwise limit the areas that dogs can use in Juneau.   Getting the dog poop issue under control would be a significant step toward greater acceptance and freedom for dogs in the community.

Grateful Dogs has worked with the local office of Fish and Game, the Juneau International Airport, the US Forest Service, CBJ Parks & Recreation, and other agencies to benefit responsible dog owners and to promote joint use of public lands.

Clean up after your dog: The Grateful Dogs of Juneau reminds dog owners to pick up after their dogs.  In recent years, 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 in the dark

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.

NOTICE:

Access to the West Side of the Mendenhall Wetlands.  The road to the golf course is not to be used by dog walkers.  Whether the gate is open or not, do not use the trail that goes around the pond. The golf course road is private property and the CBJ has insisted that the owners of the golf course fence their property off.  This mostly has to do with access for emergency vehicles should a plane crash happen, as well as the owner's liability for people on their property.  People will have to park on the east side of that end of Industrial Blvd. (along the white fence that runs along Miller Const. gravel yard).  The CBJ has posted "No Parking" signs on the west side of the road.
