Dog parks are fun and exciting places for dogs to explore and for their owners to meet new friends! We care deeply about dog safety and so we have put together a list of safety tips when you're at the park with your dog!
Tips for Playing Safely at the Dog Park
1. Study up on dog body language!
Once you are familiar with dog body language, you will be able to understand what your dog is trying to say before anything escalates!
2. Practice basic obedience commands before visiting the dog park for the first time.
Dogs that have excellent obedience skills will know to listen to their owners and will be more willing to do what you ask in exciting situations.
3. To bring toys, or to not bring toys?
Toys are an awesome way to have meaningful and engaging play with your dog. If your dog is great with sharing and not toy aggressive/possessive, then bring the toys with you! Be mindful that other dogs may want in on your game of fetch and if things get too rowdy, you may need to put the toys up for everyone's safety.
4. Stick with similar size dogs.
If you are lucky enough to visit a dog park that has a big dog and a little dog side, please visit the appropriate side for your dog's size! This is for the safety of not only your dog, but also for the safety of others.
5. Pick up after your pet.
Clean play spaces benefit everyone!
6. Limit your stay to an hour or less
Dogs can get overtired just like people! The dog park is a very exciting place and their over-excitement can quickly turn into overtired crankiness.
