  5. Line a 5 gallon bucket with a garbage can liner and bungie cord.

  17. Report any issues or questions to the appropriate contact. 

  18. Depart, returning the battery to the charger at the police station.

Be an Ambassador

We are most hopeful that all Stewards will be Ambassadors.  However, any regular visitor to the park may participate in the Ambassador program.  This will greatly expand a “leadership” presence in the park throughout the day.  This should help us with the development of a strong, positive, responsible culture by our visitors.   The Brewster Dog Park can be the flagship for best practices with respect to the operation and maintenance of a “World Class” dog park.  Our Stewards and Ambassadors are the back bone and an integral part of this program.


  1. Get an overview of the park as you enter.

  4. Role model the rules as you enter, utilize, and exit the park.

  5. As you enter, get the horn from the orange box, which is attached to the fence adjacent to the rules sign, in the section you are using, and have it with you in the park.
