No Pets Allowed?

Something’s got to give at the Shipyard in Hoboken!

Not sure what is more embarrassing:

  • The fact that there are yellow spots all over this grassy area at the Shipyard – despite “no pets allowed” signs everywhere, or…
  • The fact that they keep the signs up. It’s obvious no one obeys them – so it might look a bit less insulting if they just take the signs down.

Maybe astroturf is the solution?

Dog owners disrespect the no pets allowed sign at the shipyard in Hoboken NJ

Good for you, Journey.

Yip, you’re right, I agree with you on the untrained dogs thing for sure. If you could throw in a good word for some of us about strollers blocking entrances and exits and cyclists riding along sidewalks in town in flip-flops, that would be great ;). Seriously though, good luck and careful on that “perfect” emerald grass.

Mooshu, I have more outdoor space at my place than most people in this town. That does not mean I cannot enjoy the park as well safely with my family. The laws are on the books because of issues with dogs in the past. I owned several dogs over the years including a wonderful 110lb male red-nose pitbull. This dog was wonderful and would stay, sit, laydown on command but only so because he was trained properly. You know the different between a trained dog and and an untrained one. I can’t tell you how many times I have cringed when I see untrained dogs misbehaving in this town. it is time for the Mayor, the council, the Heath Dept and the HPD to do a crack down on the untrained owners. They need to follow the rules and laws just like every other responsible dog owner does.

Hey the same could be said to dog owners. I don’t want a dog in the city because, if I got a dog, I’d want a husky and a yard to let it get a great private run in.

I’ll leave it to y’all to duke it out over the dog poop etc. but one morsel of information I find interesting is that the HPD was at Maxwell Place Park last night. I attribute that to the recent stories on this site about graffiti and paraphernalia, and I applaud Hoboken411 for once again getting something done!

The city acquired the deed last December. It is a city owned and run park, and I expect the city to enforce the laws especially with all of the blatant disregard for them by the dog owners in this town. You would not be allowed in NYC to do the same!

Mooshu I go to the park with my family, and I cannot enjoy it safely because of off
of the dogs deficating and urinating on the grass and the owners who allow them to do so, in addition to the dogs running around off leash. There is dedicated space in dogs runs throughout the city. If you want more space for Fido go to city hall and complain.

As soon as some kids get their face torn off by Fido all bets are off. The stats don’t lie most of the victims who receive medical attention for dog bites are children, half of whom are bitten in the face. Ever day there are over a thousand dog bites to people serious enough to require an emergency room visit. Getting bitten by a dog is the fifth most frequent cause of visits to emergency rooms caused by activities common among children.

Anyone can see it is only a matter of time and Fido will be getting the needle!

OK, then. I don’t walk my dog on this grass because it’s ridden with chemicals. But there are close to 50,000 people, and, thus, thousands of dogs, living in the one square mile city we call home. If you want more room for your brood, move to an area with less foot and paw traffic.[quote comment=”209774″]The city acquired the deed last December.
