Dog trainer Beth Logan, led the class and addressed a variety of the problems, such as stopping dogs from jumping up on people, reducing barking, and teaching dogs to sit, stay, and come.

A Dog’s Eye View: What’s up with the Chelmsford Dog Park?

Please thank Anna B. for getting me off my butt to tend to my blog. There are many things happening around Town (as always). Some days I feel like a squirrel and all the nuts are across the busy street. But back to Anna's inquiry..."so how's the Dog Park Plan coming?" After four years of looking at multiple sites all over Town, I am happy to report that at this spring's Town Meeting, Warrant Article 23 will seek to designate a two acre area of 54 Richardson Rd. for use as a Dog Park.

Chelmsford Dog Park Project

Chelmsford Dog Park Project

The Chelmsford Dog Association in conjunction with many residents and Town officials has been working together to establish an off-leash dog park for its residents and their four legged companions since 2009. This project has a multitude of benefits for the community and its over 3300 canine residents. This plan will explain the project and its significant benefit to the community. The park is 2.06 to 2.5 acres of the 12.0 acre site of the old Chelmsford highway Department garage.

In spite of Mother Nature's latest shenanigans, the Chelmsford Dog Association is preparing for Spring. First up, is the Chelmsford Spring Town Meeting, which starts on April 29. The Spring Town Meeting Warrant is now signed by the Board of Selectmen. Article 23 will designate an area of 54 Richardson Rd to be used as a dog park. Article 29 will allow off-leash dogs in an area designated by the Town. The Chelmsford Dog Association is asking supporters for a dog park in Chelmsford to let their Town Meeting Representatives know that having a public dog park is a desired project, and to ask them to vote in favor of these two articles. Once these steps are complete, the group can finally work on building the park. They'll be asking for lots of help then. Thanks to all of you for getting the word out. Please feel free to ask questions-if I don't know, I'll find out! Thank you-on behalf of the Chelmsford Dog Association.

Holiday Prelude – Pictures with Santa

Many thanks to the Chelmsford Decorating Committee for sponsoring the Santa on the common during the Holiday Prelude. As our contribution to the community, a member of the Chelmsford Dog Association took the pictures of kids, adults and pets with Santa and we have posted the full-quality digital images in our gallery.

Flyers, Flyers, Everywhere!

Yes, it's been a long time since I've had a chance to blog about anything. Thanksgiving is almost all set-all I need to buy is food and find my family and we're good. So that makes today is the day I focus on things that are happening on the first weekend of December.

Howl’ween is ON!

Thanks to the rain last weekend, Howl'ween was postponed. It has been rescheduled for THIS Sunday, October 21. We're looking forward to seeing you all (and all your dogs!)

A Dog’s Eye View looks at: The Dog Days of Summer

Several weeks ago (yes, the end of July), I went out feed the rabbits and I noticed one of them had started to shed his summer coat. This usually happens around now (the middle to the end of August), so I was surprised to see this starting so early. About a week after that, I noticed the huskies were starting to plop their summer tufts, and the goose has started his semi-annual molt early as well. I've noticed an inordinate amount of leaves on the ground, but I'll just blame that on the torrential rain we've had recently. Fall is in the air. Already? It's eighty degrees out!
