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.

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

Access to the West Side of the
Mendenhall Wetlands. The road to
the golf course is not to be used by dog walkers.
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.
