Bernard Dog Run

2 Comments Uncategorized

The Lawrenceville dog park initiative has been renamed the Bernard Dog Run in memory of Jay Bernard, a Lawrenceville resident, business owner, artist and abandonned dog advocate whose big heart and countless contributions to his community continue to inspire.

The proposed Bernard Dog Run is a linear 1-acre dog run located near the 40th Street Bridge, between the CSX rail line and the Allegheny River Trail. For a brief overview of features and amenities, please see the Bernard Dog Run tab or the poster and proposal below.

How many dogs in Lawrenceville??!

No Comments Uncategorized

Based on a national survey of pet ownership, it is estimated that 39 percent of U.S. households own at least one dog (1.7 to be exact). We can therefore estimate that 1,600 of Lawrenceville’s more than 4,200 households have 1.7 dogs…That makes nearly 3,000 dogs in Lawrenceville!

Given our compact urban conditions (i.e. small or no backyards), these hounds and their owners are in desperate need a safe place to run free.  Everyone knows that an exercised dog is a good dog… Below is a small sample of Lawrenceville’s dog community! Read more
