Dog Run Ideas
I predict that by 2010, Hoboken’s population will be near or above 60,000.
Along with thousands of extra residents, will come many more dogs. The tiny and poorly operated “developer give-back” type dog runs (such as the one at the Shipyard) are just not sufficient enough in my opinion.
With all the walking around Hoboken I do, and after spending some time with my dog at the Dog Beach in Manasquan a few weeks ago, it dawned on me that there are some spots that could be converted to dog runs with minimal effort. Spaces that are being 100% completely unused.
Behind City Hall! Stick a small run here. What else is this space being used for?
And what about this little inlet by the Hudson Tea Building? Clean it up, add a gate, and presto! You have yourself a small Hoboken dog beach.
Who knows, maybe being a new dog owner has just gotten to my head and I should go back to thinking like a normal person. But after seeing the dust storm that my dog has to inhale at the various “pebble parks” we have, I thought I’d throw it out there.
Have a great weekend everyone!
