Crissy Field Dog Group is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and advocating for responsible dog ownership and establishing and upholding permanent off-leash dog walking rights within the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA).

CFDG is working directly with the GGNRA, our Congressional delegation, and other stakeholders to advocate off-leash dog walking and other recreation issues within the GGNRA. It is our ultimate goal to restore permanent off-leash dog walking and preserve recreation within the GGNRA. As an organized non-profit group, we have a substantial membership base and voice in the San Francisco Bay Area.
