New Dog Park Unleashes Furry Fidos

New Dog Park Unleashes Furry Fidos

August 26, 2019

Our new dog park is open, giving Fidos of all shapes and sizes a “paw-some” place to play.

The park features separate areas for large and small dogs. Benches allow dog “maws and paws” to watch their fur babies play.

Dog parks give pups and their people a place to make “fur-ever” friends. To make the dog park experience even better, we’ve put together a few tips so you and your pup can have fun.

Don’t Make a ‘Faux-paw’

Before you play, take time to learn dog park etiquette. The rules for our dog park are listed on the gate. Following them ensures that you and your dog “raise the woof” safely.

Pack a Doggie Bag

Dog play is hard work so make sure to pack a doggie bag. Include a water dish, treats and a towel (just in case he finds a mud puddle).

Bring Balls and Frisbees

What dog doesn’t like to play fetch? Bring tennis balls, Frisbees — whatever your dog likes to chase. Bring extras so your pup’s new friends can play, too.

Watch All the Dogs Play

It’s fun to watch all the dogs play, so keep your phone in your pocket. Make sure your dog is playing appropriately, is safe, and if he or she poops, pick it up and dispose of the waste. Also, watch and see if your dog gets along well with another dog — it’s a great opportunity to make future pup playdates.

Have Fun

Remember, the main reason to hang at the dog park is to spend quality time with your pup. Make a point of taking him or her at least once a week. And if you make the move to Harvest Green, your doggie can play whenever he or she wants.
