OUR MISSION

Recent events have reminded us all that being outdoors is an important factor in our own lives and mental health, we as educated pet owners must consider this same level of importance for our four-legged friends.

Our mission at Hancock Hounds Dog Park(HHDP) is a series of community built, maintained, and member-monitored dog parks, throughout Hancock New York. HHDP is currently reviwing plans for a new community animal shelter, as we explore and apply for a variety of funding options through grants. HHDP envisions a community that fosters strong relationships between residents and well-socialized animals, and opportunities to create jobs in Hancock.

 

Working to Build Better Community Services

OUTDOOR ACTIVITY

Most dogs are at their healthiest when they experience regular outdoor activity, that translates to less agression, outburts, and destructive behavior in the community!

 
REGULAR REST

Sleeping habits and noise levels can easily be regulated by regular acitivty. Does your neighbor have a noisy dog? Suggest they take them to the dog park. The best dogs are tired, and well exercised dogs.

 
HEALTHY LIFESTYLE

Both you and your dogs can enjoy a healthier and happier lifestyle, by having the option to visit the park when needed. Even if you don’t need it every week, having the option provides healthy exercise.

 
TRAINING

Dog parks provide a way for dogs to be easily trained and make the community a safer and more appealing place. This is also a possible job creation sector for the town.

JOB OPPORTIUNITIES

Towns are always looking for new jobs, and local dog walking and training services are easy additions to the town’s new job sector, as the dog park opens.

COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS

The dog park also creates wonderful new partnership opportunities for local businesses, advertisers, and state/federal grants that can bring business into town.
