Local Dog Parks
** Smart tips for Dog Park attendance

  1. Make sure your dog is up to date on all vaccinations.  Take a copy of your current shot record with you to the park.
  2. Have your dog vaccinated against Kennel Cough (Bordatella).  Dogs in a park are within close contact and it is more likely to spread disease.
  3. Know which vet offices are close by in case of emergency.
  4. Keep your lead around your neck or with you at all times so you can restrain your dog in the case of a dog fight. Even if your dog isn't in it, he/she will most likely run to investigate it.
  5. Teach your dog a good recall code (and practice it everywhere).  If a situation gets too dangerous between dogs you can get your dogs attention and leave immediately.
  6. Lastly, Be aware of what your dog is into at all times.  It is nice to chat with friends at the park, but caution is always best when there are a lot dogs with a lot of energy. A situation can arise very quickly.
