Some of our activities and accomplishments

DogPAC is a community volunteer organization that does a combination of advocacy (many hours in meetings) and on-the-ground enhancement for off-leash recreation (many hours in the forest and parks).

  • We provide information and promote responsible dog guardianship, especially relating to off-leash recreation.
  • We adopted and maintain the Deschutes River Trail and broader Good Dog! area between Entrada Lodge and Meadow Camp.
  • We created, maintain, and groom Central Oregon's only groomed ski and snowshoe trails that allow dogs.
  • We provide poop bags and empty "poop trash" at Good Dog!, the Wanoga winter trail, and the Phil's Trail parking area.
  • We catalyzed the relaxation of summer trail restrictions in the national forest (Deschutes River Trail and wilderness).
  • We catalyzed the Bend Park and Recreation District's expansion from 1 OLA to 7 in 2009; the Oregon Recreation and Park Association recognized our collaboaration with BPRD via the 2009 Volunteer Service Award.
  • We work to sustain and expand forest and park off-leash access.

Our mission

DogPAC's mission is to promote the health and enjoyment of dogs and their guardians through the provision of off-leash recreation opportunities in Central Oregon.

We hope this site, our advocacy, and our on-the-ground work enhance your enjoyment of outdoor experiences with your dog. It is important for you and others that your dog behaves responsibly when off-leash. Please check out our Get Smart webpage for etiquette tips and other useful information.

Our three keys to successful outdoor experiences:

Enjoyment, Responsibility, and Access.


Your donation funds trail maintenance; volunteers drive our dreams.
