Dog Parks and On-Leash Dog Walking Trails Around Long Island

Grab some friends…grab some bags and join LI-DOG’s Project P.U.P. (Pick Up the Poop) Spring Clean Up Event—on Saturday morning, April 29th!

Help provide our wonderful dog parks with some T.L.C and let everyone know how much we value our beautiful dog-friendly areas.

How can cleaning up dog parks be fun? It’s easy with these few simple steps:

The park will be spotless in no time and everyone, including the dogs, will thank you.

Before you let your dogs play and enjoy the results of your efforts, take a group photo to showcase your hard work and everyone who participated.  Post your photo to the LI-DOG Facebook Group and/or to Instagram with #ProjectPUP!

 

Bundle of Brightly Colored LI-DOG LeashesPrizes–beautiful 5′ leashes with metal clasps and LI-DOG’s name on them and high quality, individually-wrapped doggy treats–will be awarded to the dog park groups with the largest number of participants!

** Many thanks to original LI-DOG Board Member and longtime supporter Barbara Mitchell for donating the prizes in celebration of her family’s newly minted Canine Good Citizen Team Zach and “Natty” and the entire April 2017 CERTIFIED CGC Class of Instructor/Evaluator Virginia Westfield-Slowik at Suffolk Obedience Training Club! **

What is a more relaxing way to unwind from the work week than having Fido at your feet and a few beers in your hands?

With the popularity of its inaugural “Yappy Hour” earlier this year, Greenport Harbor Brewery and Harbor Pet have come together again to give us a second round.

On Friday, April 21st, you and your fur baby (well-behaved and leashed, no retractables) are welcome at Greenport Harbor Brewery’s Peconic Tasting Room. As you sip delicious full pours, Fido will get to gnosh on Harbor Pet Grrowler Dog Treats (made from the brewery’s wet grains of the day!)

No sign-up necessary, but let Greenport Harbor Brewery know you and your fur baby are coming for some treats on their Facebook event page.

You and your fur baby can cheer on our hometown favorites, the Long Island Ducks, as they play their cross-LI Sound rivals, York Revolution, all while helping support LI-DOG!

Come early for group photos (gates open at 5:30), but if Fido is still embarrassed about his last haircut, then just be sure to come by 6:15.

Our deadline for orders is Fri., April. 14th. Tickets are $15 per person** plus $5 for a Pooch Pass for your pup! All proceeds benefit LI-DOG’s work to get more access to parks and beaches for Long Island dog owners and their dogs. Please note: Tickets are non-refundable.

Admission fee includes participation in contests, but you’ll need to sign up to play once you’re there. Contests will take place on Off-Key Tikki’s stage and on the large patio by the water. Even if your fur baby isn’t competing, come watch and cheer on a friend!
