Dogpaw is an all volunteer group of people who build and maintain dog parks in the Vancouver, Washington area. They also sponsor special events like Doggie Olympics for pets and their owners participation, as well as dog shows featuring Best Tail Wagger; Best Smile; and best pet/owner look alike couple. In addition, they furnish bags for doggie poop and disposal bins, which they empty regularly. It's a wonderful service to our community and their parks are the only facilities in the county where dogs can be off leash and just act like dogs!
