Luger Triangle, Adjacent to Angell Woods: New Dog Run With Two Sections

BEACONSFIELD, QUÉBEC--(Marketwired - July 19, 2016) - The mayor of Beaconsfield, Georges Bourelle, is pleased to announce the creation of the City's first dog run, among the largest on the island of Montréal, located in the Luger Triangle adjacent to Angell Woods in Beaconsfield, starting this summer.

This project is intended for use by the residents, since Beaconsfield has opted to not ban certain dog breeds, such as pit bulls, on its territory, but rather to enforce the obligation to walk dogs on a leash in public areas.

"Safety and respect for the rights and freedoms of all citizens are principles that we promote in Beaconsfield. It is in this spirit that dog owners will have access to a privileged site where their loyal companions can run and play in complete safety while respecting those who do not like to be bothered by dogs or are afraid of them," indicates the mayor.

The site which will cover an area of about 155,000 square feet, including a 25,000 square feet section for small dogs, will be set up in the coming weeks and should be accessible in September.

Certain events that occurred earlier this year have prompted the Québec government to consider a new dog policy which will be announced in the fall depending on the recommendations of a working group put in place to study the issue.

"In order to respect dog lovers, we wish to provide them with a space where their pets can run freely. We therefore decided to create the City's first dog run while ensuring the safety of all which is our first priority", concludes Mayor Bourelle.
