Tips For Keeping St. Nick’s Dog Run Looking Great in Winter!

Though fewer dogs and owners may use the run during the winter months, it still sees a lot of action. Below are some tips for what you can do to help us maintain our beautiful dog run.

Help keep the dog run clean and neat by:

– Bringing extra poop bags to fill our dispensers.

– Picking up trash (even if it’s not yours).

– Picking up poop (even if it’s not your dog’s).

– Filling in holes (no matter who dug them).

– Picking up stray cigarette butts.

– Picking up glass whenever you see it

– Volunteer on a Clean-up Day. (we always send out notices when we schedule them). Email us at if you like to be added to our list.

– Respect the rules of the Dog Run and work with other members of this great dog- owning community.

Contribute financially to support ongoing maintenance as well as future improvements to the dog run.
