Calling all dog enthusiasts! Would you like to help support and educate the local community of dog owners? Join the Chelmsford Dog Association.
The CDA worked to build the Chelmsford Dog Park and was responsible for maintaining the park for its first three years. The CDA’s charter includes the goal of educating and supporting people about responsible dog ownership. We provide seminars, as well as organize and participate in events dedicated to dogs.
Just to name a few examples, past seminars include Recognizing Dog Behavior (Body Language), Supporting your Senior Pet, and Service, Support, or Therapy – Which Dog is Which? amongst others. Our typical annual events include pictures of dogs with the Easter Bunny and the Howl’ween celebration at the park. We have been hosting Howl’ween since 2009 – and can’t wait to host it again in October 2021.
We also participate in the Lowell Humane Muddy Paws Super Hero 5K, the 4th of July town of Chelmsford celebration, the Byam Historical Fair, and the town’s Holiday Prelude. Last year, we held Cars, Canines, and Coffee in September. This event was very popular and will be held again on June 19.
We are always looking for new members and volunteers to assist at seminars and events. The yearly membership fee for General Membership is $20 per person. Organizations can join as a Group Affiliate for $50, which includes advertising on our website and at our events. These dues help fund the educational seminars and our other events. Membership also gives you a 10% discount on any CDA merchandise which we sell at our events.
