R.U.F.F. News and Notes

Responsible Urbanites For Fido’s (RUFF), Board will be on hand at the new dog park in the Gassy to answer questions, address concerns and get feedback on all things RUFF on Wednesday, May 23 at 6 and 7 PM.

There are many ways to get involved with RUFF, park maintenance, Year of the Dog event, the Big Dog Show and other ways. Helping to keep the park clean and working would be a positive way to assist.

The Rose Kennedy Greenway has asked RUFF to host a “Year of the Dog” event on The Greenway.

The Navy Yard Garden Association has asked RUFF if we would be interested in hosting an event this summer at The Big Dog Show at their art installation at the Spalding Rehab.

Do you want to host your dog’ s birthday in the park? Would you like to host a get together? RUFF is happy to accommodate. Reach out to us for more details. It is important we scheduled your event so that it doesn’t overlap with other events in the park.

The Park is popular. With lots of dogs checking it out, it’s important to be aware of aggression in dogs. Being a responsible dog owner also includes watching out for aggressive behavior and reading the signs your dog is giving off.

Please note that if you are having issues with an aggressive dog, reach out to RUFF. We take park safety very seriously. Complaints are logged and if necessary a ban will be issued. We encourage all RUFF members to seek proper training for their dogs. RUFF is happy to distribute some reputable dog trainers.

Anyone interested in the above-mentioned events email info@ruffboston.org.
