2015 Waterfowl Hunting Season in the Juneau area: 

September 16 though December 31


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.

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 will probably post no parking on the west side.



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.

CBJ Docks and Harbors Board has considered 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 also considered the adoption of a code of conduct for pet owners in the harbor areas.


The D&H Board took action to adopt the registration requirement, registration fee, and pet owners code of conduct at its March meeting.


For more information on these proposals, visit the GDOJ information page: here.
