RUFF North End, the local dog owners group, held a community chat at the December meeting of the North End / Waterfront Neighborhood Council (NEWNC) regarding dog issues in the neighborhood.
RUFF leaders Leslie Horn and Anya Potter responded to questions about how to encourage irresponsible dog owners to pickup after their dog. The group has signs and a surveillance efforts, but finds that communicating with other dog owners is the most effective way to educate them. RUFF is looking forward to opening their permanent dog park at the Gassy in 2017 and also maintains a dog run on Richmond Street.
