Protecting the Environment
The City of Dublin provides permanent sanctuaries for native wildlife and vegetation. Once abundant, these irreplaceable resources are rapidly disappearing.
As pressures from the expanding human population increase, the parklands become even more important as refuges for wildlife. For this reason, when dog owners cooperate with regulations like those listed below, the impact of domestic animals on wildlife is reduced.
Trail Manners for You & Your Dog
- Keep your dog on a leash not more than six (6) feet in length.
- Always be courteous. Don't give other trail users any reason to complain. Set an example for others by being a conscientious owner with a well-behaved dog out enjoying the trails.
- Clean up after your dog. Leave all trails as clean or cleaner than when you arrived.
- Respect the environment - don't let your dog dig or cause damage.
- Respect wildlife and their habitat - you are in their home.
- Yield the right of way to other hikers. Many people are afraid of dogs. Communicate with others and always keep your dog under control.
