SFDOG is a non-profit organization that promotes responsible dog ownership/guardianship, offers educational programs for both dog owners/guardians and the general public, and works for increased off-leash recreation opportunities for responsible dog owners/guardians and their canine companions.
On January 14, 2011, the GGNRA released a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for a new Dog Management Plan. The 2,400-page DEIS looked at impacts of five alternatives for a dog management plan at 21 sites, and selected a sixth as a Preferred Alternative. The Preferred Alternative will severely restrict access for people who want to recreate with their dogs off-leash compared to where they are currently able to do so. [Click here to read the DEIS]
