We have started planning for the annual Howl’ween event!
The event will be held at the Chelmsford Dog Park on Saturday, October 13 from 10-2

As usual, we’ll be holding the vendor fair, and offering food, raffles, contests and the costume show!

As the holiday season ramps up and we start our frantic shopping sprees. think about the CDA for a moment!
If you shop on Amazon, you can help us (and the park)!
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice.
Thank You all for attending Howl’ween 2017! Below are the results of the costume contests and the photo gallery of pictures taken at the event.
Many thanks to our photographers, Mary McConnell and Cara Zipoli
It’s been a Ruff summer for Phoenix and Smokey.
I created an online survey where people told me the strangest things their dog has eaten and not make himself (or herself) sick. The following list has me convinced me we are all surrounded by Bad Dogs to such a degree, that when my major policy renewal season is over at the insurance agency, I may just start petitioning the State Legislature to make Chronic Bad Dog Syndrome (CBDS) an ailment worthy of allowing me to obtain an ADA placard for my car, and maybe install some sirens and flashing lights.

Hello again, I seem to be following a pattern of writing a new article every 13 months to two years. Clearly I do not do this for a working wage….
Thank you to all of the wonderful and hard-working folks who came down to the spring cleanup work party (aka poop-a-palooza)!
Everyone worked very hard to clean up, make the park look nice – and did a great job.
POOP-A-PALOOZA AND WORK PARTY HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED TO APRIL 22 – NOTE THE CHANGED DATE!
We are planning a Poop-a-palooza and work-party to do spring-time cleanup maintenance on the park – On Saturday, April 22, from 8 till 12.
Please contact Will at email@example.com or on Facebook if you are interested in helping. (Do note, this does qualify as volunteer hours for high school students and the requirements for the National Honor Society.)
The park will be CLOSED for normal usage during this work-party, but volunteers can bring their dogs to hang out in the training area while we humans make the park nice for them (and us).
This is a survey about people’s use of the Chelmsford Dog Park. We appreciate all input (and the answers are anonymous, unless you enter your email address on the last page of the survey.)
Dog poop is a problem we deal with on a daily basis. But is it dangerous? How much do you know? Is uncleaned pet waste a health hazard?
The short answer is YES!
Read the article for the details…
Reminder: It is time to get your 2017 dog license!
Your dog can’t come to the park, without a valid license from your town!
Licensing your pooch online is as easy as 1-2-3:
1- Digital file (PDF, JPEG, TIFF, etc.) of your dog’s current rabies certificate from your veterinarian;
2- To renew a previously licensed dog, please have last year’s tag number available.
3- Credit card or checking account payment information.*
May everyone (and every dog) have a happy and safe year in 2017!
The park is now CARRY EVERYTHING OUT!
DO NOT leave poop on the ground.
DO NOT leave poop bags on the ground or gathered up into a bag on the fence.
DO NOT leave your Dunkins cups or water bottles in the park.
When you leave, TAKE IT ALL WITH YOU.
Happy Thanksgiving from the CDA! On this Turkey Day and following days as you eat, drink and have fun, be safe for all you humans and your pets. Common Thanksgiving…
We are planning a work-party to do autumn cleanup and pre-winter maintenance on the park – On Saturday, December 3, from 8 till 12.
Several folks expressed an interest in assisting last time and have asked “when is the next work party?”
Please contact Will at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Facebook if you are interested in helping.
Although this is not specifically a CDA sponsored event, several students from Tyngsboro High School are doing an Animal Cruelty Awareness project.
Their work will culminate in a pageant being held at the Dog Park on November 12.
To get involved, please email them at the address linked on this page.
