This park will be a membership only dog park with an attendant on duty during hours of operation, and unlike other off leash areas, there will be rules in place. The rules will be strictly enforced, there will be a consistent park stewardship plan in place, and all pups will be screened through the "Dangerous Pup" database before being granted membership. Children under 12 years old will not be allowed, and this is to ensure their safety. Just as baseball parks are not for pups, pup parks are not for small children. And yes, dog parks can foster kennel cough, which is similar to a pup catching a cold, and is not dangerous in an adult pup. Your best defense is to go to the vet and request the intranasal spray for bordatella. As far as any other major diseases, I am not aware of any. The chances of anyone bringing a severely ill pup to the pup park are nil.
If you would like more information regarding the membership requirements to Middle Island, please visit www.suffolkcountyunleashed.com The opening day will be posted on the site as soon as we are informed-
Gina your a moron. Look up PARVO. It is dangerous, it does kill. Adult dogs can carry parvo with no ill effect, bring a smaller dog; yorkie and such... or a puppy and guarantee a dead dog in 7 days. God what a dumb thing to say. Inform yourself before splatting out nonsense.

What the hell was Foley and the board thinking when they passed this resolution???
My tax money went to this B.S. Project.
This is right next to the old K-Mart right. At least hopefully something nice and USEFUL will be there soon to cover up that eyesore.
Does anyone know if this dog park in Brookhaven has opened yet??? Or where exactly it is? Thanks

Nice mouth, "Stupid People-" the dogs that come into the park are up to date on vaccs, which includes parvo- proof of vaccs has to be supplied when applying for the membership-

just because your dog is unneutered doesnt mean that they get aggressive that is a myth, my dog is unneutered and he is calm and mushy and he's a pit.

Suzie, just to let you know: the Middle Island Dog Park does not allow children under 12 to attend the park for exactly this reason. The park is great. You don't know what you're missing.

The town of Brookhaven has banned fishing at Shoreham Beach. People have been fishing at this beach for years. After labor day, they closed the beach to EVERYONE, but after some outcry the beach was reopened. Fishing is still banned there. The town board is doing the bidding of some local shore front residents who are trying to turn public beaches into private beaches.

Brookhaven residents pay incredibly high taxes for use of public parks, beaches, etc , and are now being denied access to these beaches. The Town of Brookhaven has 153 miles of coastline and a population of 448,519 with only 14 areas to go fishing legally.

In my opinion, these actions by the town board are illegial and only serve a select few , not all the residents of Brookhaven.

Many groups are now fighting this ban , but the town will not budge.

There is an on-line petition on this issue. If you care about your rights, whether you are a fisherman or not, please sign the petition and spread the word. We can not let this action by the town board stand.

Sad to know this is what you've become. Is this what you teach as a Deshi in TSK? Glad to know that my son does not train with you anymore!
You've have changed so much and DEFINETLY NOT FOR THE BETTER! You should focus more on your ethics and discipline and not on this crap you've been writing in. And let's not talk about cowardness, you are the first one to hide on this internet site and chicken away when somebody confronts you face to face. Grow up and act like a MAN not a little teenager that can't let go and admit that he was WRONG!!!

Way too many dogs; people should be limited to one each and every one of the dogs should be neutered. Dog poo is extremely toxic and cannot be composted because of the disease and parasites contained. Dogs are dangerous, noisy, threats to humans and especially to kids. To designate parkland for them is stupid and will end up costing millions in lawsuits. Dog owners believe themselves better than others for lavishing resources on animals rather than providing minimal care for homeless women and children. Pitiful and sad.

Be careful of dog parks. My vet says he see's lots of injuries showing up at his office due to fights that dogs get into in these parks. The dog whisperer says he doesn't think that it's a good idea either.
With all that said, I guess it's at least a step in dog friendly direction.
And not to mention, worms and other diseases, your dog may get from the other dogs!
