Dog hate!

Dog hate morphing into graffiti vandalism in Hoboken!

Wow this stretch of First Street downtown is really “going all in” when it comes to how clear they’re making their dog hate known.

They’ve lowered themselves to defacing the sidewalks with messages for dog owners. While I do see their logic (because no one looks up anymore since they’re on their phones), it’s still pretty much vandalism.

Maybe when they pass and come back in another life – perhaps they’ll be reincarnated as a pooch!

Dog hate in Hoboken finds new lows!

8/28/2013 Update:

Thought this was a funny update… there’s a particular stretch of First Street that has no love for Hoboken’s dogs, with signs essentially showing the “dog ban” logo.

However, now even graffiti on lamp posts also goes negative towards the pooches!

As you can see – Hoboken411 Mascot Oscar’s buddy Norton didn’t appreciate it one bit:

Hateful Hoboken Dog Sign

1/14/2013:

Every time I’m on First St. downtown, this particular sign ticks me off.

The person responsible for putting this sign up must have a strong hatred towards the four-legged friends in Hoboken.

For one – it has a symbol that essentially suggests “no dogs,” or “dogs prohibited,” which is 100% not the case in town. Then it reads “sidewalks are for people,” and goes on to say to clean up after your pet.

What about bikes, massive strollers, and motorized wheelchairs? And how come they’re not asking for people to clean up their own steaming piles of vomit that are left on the sidewalks each and every weekend? Or blood from nonsensical street fights?

I think this person has their priorities screwed up!

While I usually agree with you 411, I understand the intent behind that sign as 1st street is possible the biggest minefield of unclaimed and cleaned mounds of dog excrement on the eastern seaboard. The sign would be more accurate with a picture of a dog pooping and an owner walking away staring down at their dingleberry or iphone.

While I have not personally experienced the “poo minefield” situation on 1st Street, I’ve had enough of the “no dogs on grass” in city parks or city land of any kind. Dogs don’t know how to read signs and via instinct want to pee on grass. Its very hard to explain to a dog from out of town why they are not allowed on the grass. Aside from the gravel dog runs, dogs are not welcome in many public spaces. Gravel hurts the paws of my dog and she doesn’t like the dog run. If I lived on 1st Street,… Read more »

Not only are the fines incorrect for the violations, but take a look at the signs in Church Square Park. If your dog deviates from going directly to the dog run, the fine is something like a max of $2000 and forfeiture of the dog! That creepy Health Dept guy used to give me crap about walking my dog through the park when in lived on the park. To one commenters point, I don’t like when dogs pee across a sidewalk. So I would let my dog pee in a bush in the park where no one walked. For that… Read more »

the problem is not dogs – the problem is the people that think its cute to own them, but don’t know the first thing about caring for them, and who dont give a ‘crap’ about others. They don’t clean up and allow their dogs to bark all hours of the night or early mornings. Don’t blame the dogs, blame the irresponsible owners.

You are right. Unfortunately, if you think about that a dog goes probably two or three times per day, what may appear as a bunch of a$$hole owners can be just one idiot. It only takes one idiot to have a 5 block radius covered in $hit. I don’t take pictures- I confront owners. If one tries to get away I will literally pick up their dog’s poop with my hands and throw it at them.

Inquisitive, you will be happy to know that in County Parks, a responsible owner with a well behaved dogs is allowed on the grass. There are some parks where dogs are also allowed off leash.

People bitch about dog poop on the sidewalk, but I hardly see it. Where exactly are these minefields??

While I understand the point of this sign, as I have experienced the “minefields” that exist, the sign itself is purposely misleading and should be replaced. Citing the specific ordinance # which is meant for cleaning up after your dog, but using it on a sign that implies that dogs aren’t allowed on the sidewalk is wrong. I’m curious if any dog owners have been deterred from walking here as a result.
