Help Create A Dog Park In Carrickfergus

Please help me set up a dog park in Carrickfergus. An area specifically designed for dog owners to excercise their dogs off their leads in a completely fenced and safe area. Understandably, due to the dangers of canine related diseases being contracted by humans; (mostly as a direct cause of irresponsible dog owners; in failure to clean up after their pets), areas where dogs are allowed to be exercised, are ever decreasing. I passionately believe it time to create a compromise between these two sectors and to offer a fair and sensible alternative to the dog owning public, by way of creating an area for the sole use of dogs and their owners. Lots of parks etc, are fencing off areas for children to play in, when it would be much more sensible to make the enclosed areas for dogs and their owners. In most parks, dogs are only allowed a few metres walking space on the edge of either football pitches or playing fields and of course none of these are completely enclosed. Your signature is needed, as responsible dog owners, to help make this happen. Please sign and forward on to everyone you know who owns a dog. Your support is greatly appreciated. Please make sure you fill in all fields as signature will otherwise not be recorded. Many Thanks From all your canine friends..!


Most dogs require exercise that lead restrictions do not allow. The Cardiovascular benefit provided by healthy play time with other dogs is essential for a dog's longevity and weight control. Dogs are social animals whose mental health is improved by interaction with other canines. Happy and healthy dogs are calmer and better behaved, reducing nuisance barking and other annoying behavior's exhibited by unexercised animals.
