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.

Fundraiser this Sunday, 5/16 at Bruckner Bar & Grill

Now that we have the final approval, we just need the remaining funds to get the park built. We hope you can all come out on Sunday, May 16 from 4-8pm at Bruckner Bar & Grill to support our upcoming Dog Run in St. Mary's Park. We would like to thank Animal Feed for providing gift certificates, as well as the Pet Pampering Patrol for offering a free grooming session to a lucky guest.

And let's not forget there will be a DJ and local/national celebrities! Hope to see you there!

  1. Greetings! In the aftermath of 1/12 Brooklyn dog shocking, please disseminate this vital public service to preclude more tragedies. Many thanks and happy safe new year!



    Just so you know, I confer with Con Edison's Stray Voltage and Public Affairs Units and contribute to Wet Nose Guide and New York Dog Chat.

    Contact voltage is a chronic hidden hazard that can readily victimize an unsuspecting dog, walker, or both. No dog lover could possibly observe a more horrifying scene than witnessing his beloved pet instantaneously maimed or tragically electrocuted. When you exercise your pooch, please exercise greater prudence. Common outdoor electrical and metal fixtures may shock or even kill your vulnerable dog. And depending upon the current, the walker will be bitten and like poor Aric Roman, suffer permanently. But you can, indeed, self-protect.

    Just start to adopt this simple strategy — EYEBALL THE BLOCK, AND AVOID A SHOCK. Take a few seconds and make your trajectory toward generally safer, free standing, non-conductive surfaces, ie., plastic, wood, cardboard. Intuit your dog’s cues and if it’s resistant, change directions. Work site perimeters may be live so try to elude them. If necessary, switch sides of the street or your hands when leading to skirt hazards. If you traverse the same route, you may memorize locations of potential dangers. Carry your pooch when in doubt. Consider indoor restroom products like PottyPark when external conditions are chancy or RopeNGo’s hardware-free leash and harness. And don’t rely on dog booties as a palliative as they will actually put your pet at even greater risk since the dog can’t tell you they’re leaking! To learn to more, please see StreetZaps. A safer walk is yours year round if you are willing to open to your eyes and mind to it
