Dog Parks FAQs
Are dog parks safe?
You might feel concerned about the safety of dog parks, and here the saying "if you don't worry, then worry; if you worry, then don't worry," seems to ring true. Keep your dog closely under your supervision, have a leash ready if you ever need to intervene in rough play, stay aware of surrounding dogs and your dog should be plenty safe in the park.
What kind of supplies should I bring to the park?
Here are some supplies you can remember to bring to the dog park. For the car: a blanket to cover the seat, your pup's harness, and a doggy seatbelt clip. For the park: a leash, waste bags, water for you and your dog, treats, and any toys like frisbees. For yourself: sunglasses, sunscreen, running shoes, a raincoat, a hat.
Do I still need to pickup after my dog in dog parks?
Yes, especially in dog parks, waste accumulates quickly. Be sure to pickup after your dog to keep the park hygienic.
Is the information in this guide accurate?
While we've done our best to ensure accuracy, we can't guarantee it since our research might not be up to date. It's probably best to assume that dog parks are not fenced, don't have water, and are not off-leash until you confirm on-site.
