SFDOG is a non-profit organization that promotes responsible dog ownership/guardianship, offers educational programs for both dog owners/guardians and the general public, and works for increased off-leash recreation opportunities for responsible dog owners/guardians and their canine companions.
The Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) released a new version of its proposed Dog Management Plan on Friday, September 6, 2013. They will be accepting public comment until December 4, 2013. The plan is 1500+ pages, so it will take us a little time to analyze, but once we do, we will post suggested comments that you can make to the GGNRA.

Dear Superintendent Dean,
SFDOG submitted an official public comment on the GGNRA DEIS for a new Dog Management Plan. It was hand delivered to the GGNRA at 3:45 pm on Friday, May 27, 2011. The DEIS is so poorly done it does not meet the standards required of it by NEPA law. The SFDOG Comment includes examples of the many problems with the DEIS, highlights the extraordinary level of bias against dogs in its assumptions and analysis, and argues that it is so fatally flawed that it cannot be fixed. SFDOG also has links to comments from other groups and individuals here.
