Dog Walking Restrictions

  • Although we love our furry friends, no dogs are allowed on Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) property within the Sudbury Reservoir watershed. This applies to trails throughout town.
    • Dog walking is permitted at the Town Forest and Breakneck Hill Conservation Land in addition to other commmunity resources such as Callahan, Hopkinton, and Ashland State Park.
  • The Sudbury reservoir serves as backup drinking water and strict regulations are in place to help keep the watershed and water clean and free of pollutants.
  • "Pet waste poses a serious threat to water quality as it is full of bacteria and viruses that can be harmful to people and wildlife, and nutrients that can cause harmful algal blooms." DCR Educational Flyer (PDF)
  • "Dogs are fed processed foods or people food that results in an excess of nutrients in their waste and the environment. Wild animals on watershed property consume natural sources from the ecosystem and return nature to nature in their waste." DCR Public Advisory (PDF)
  • Thank you for doing your part to keep the land and water clean. Even where dog walking is allowed, please pack out the dog waste. The increased use in trails has resulted in more dog waste in the community. Bad for humans, bad for wildlife.
