Welcome to the South Bronx Dog Owner's Group

We are an active community organization working towards bringing a dog run to the South Bronx, specifically St. Mary's Park. Formed in March 2009, SBDOG has grown from a few dog owning members, to a strong community organization that is as diverse as the Mott Haven community it serves. Our ultimate goal is to make the South Bronxs' parks friendlier for those individuals in the community that own dogs and seek a safe secure place to socialize them, share ideas and experience, and meet other dog owners in the community. We plan to have the dog park up and running by summer 2010! To become a member of the organization, or to be put on the email list for important events, please send us an email. Thank you and check back often for the latest updates.

SBDOG had our first meeting with a Bronx Parks representative today. We discussed the potential dog park and selected a site for the park. Thus far the parks department has been extremely supportive of our quest for a dog run, and we very much appreciate all of their help. We are now awaiting final approval for the dog park from Bronx Parks Commissioner Hector Aponte! We anxiously await your decision Mr. Aponte!
