The number of dogs on the beach and water at Northshore Park has been increasing. Today at noon there were 12 dogs on the beach, most without leashes. I observed 1 fairly rough dog fight, and dogs pooping in the water. Part of the problem seems to have started with the volleyball players who bring their dogs every day, but now everyone else is bringing their dogs. People bring dogs clearly in front of the "no dog" signs. The dogs make me uncomfortable at the beach, scare the birds, and the pooping in the water seemed really unsanitary. I think if you sent someone out on a Sunday once or twice and issued some warnings, you could greatly decrease the dogs.
