About Us

Explore the flavors of Manchester, CT and support our local businesses.

The Manchester Dog Owner’s Group (MDOG) is small but hard-working group dedicated to creating and promoting the spirit of a small-town community through its events, seminars and the operation of the town’s only dog park.   MDOG’s emphasis is on responsible pet ownership which encompasses the health, training and good behavior of our canine companions within our neighborhoods.

The Taste of Manchester is MDOG’s flagship event and it offers a sampling of fine foods prepared by participating restaurants along Main Street and Hartford Road.  Event goers can take a stroll or ride the bus and follow the map to visit each tantalizing venue.   Towards the end of the evening, everyone is encouraged to head over to the Army-Navy Club and put your tickets into the running for the raffling of gifts donated by local merchants.

In addition to the Taste of Manchester, MDOG will be sponsoring the third annual Barktoberfest in October, assisting in the rabies and registration clinic at the Manchester Fire Department and presenting educational seminars throughout the year.

MDOG Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  The operation of the dog park, event production and other activities are made possible strictly through volunteer time and donation.

We greatly appreciate the community’s support and look forward to giving back to the wonderful town of Manchester Connecticut.
