Digging Has Become a Serious Problem!
Dogs must be discouraged from digging. The shovel and dirt were provided by the town for you to use to fill in holes your dog may dig. Please be responsible and fill in any holes your dog digs! The concrete support base of one bench has already been cracked and has been removed for safety issues. It was caused by dogs digging and will not be replaced.

Who We Are:
Bedford Dog Owners Group, Inc. (BDOG), a non-profit corporation operating under 501(c)(3) status, is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to improving the recreational opportunities and the lives of dogs and their owners. All of the programs and initiatives of Bedford D.O.G. are supported through membership fees and private donations. For many people, dogs are an integral part of their lives. Many dog owners enjoy outdoor activities with their dogs such as hiking and playing ball. They look for opportunities to socialize together with other owners and their dogs. Spending recreational time together, however, is greatly hindered when a dog must be kept on leash.
lend support in the creation of a dog park in Bedford and to provide
ongoing community assistance to maintain it as a recreational asset for
the citizens of Bedford. To maintain a positive presence in the
community, encourage community involvement, and recreation through the
development of dog parks. Strengthen community values and compliance
with canine laws by promoting dog access policies and responsible dog
ownership. Support conservation of open land by containing the areas
used for recreation by citizens with their dogs. Educate the community
about responsible dog ownership.
We just surpassed 10,000 hits in the past two years. Thanks for making BDOG.org one of your favorite websites. Tell all your dog-loving friends about us!
