Needham Dog Lovers Facebook Group

Dogs in a Pack

Needham Dog Lovers is a Facebook group consisting of people who love their dogs and agree to keep them in control in public and to clean up after them. We love walking with our dogs, around town, while walking our kids to school, while watching our kids' activities, and while walking through the woods. We are concerned about any efforts to limit where and when we can take man's best friend. This website is meant to be a primary source of information about and the status of a dog park in Needham.

Follow Us on Twitter

We now have a Twitter account where new and information from this site can be seen.  Check it out here! https://twitter.com/needhamoldp.  I'm trying to use the hashtag #NOLDP for entries to make them easier to find.
