A place where you can take your dog, let them run free and meet and play with other dogs? Sounds like the perfect place, right? Well, here are 4 quick tips you should know before you take your dog to the dog park.
Pets get loose all the time, despite our best efforts to keep them safe. A gardener forgets to close a gate, a burglar cuts a hole in a fence, an earthquake or flood takes down a wall. It can happen to anyone. It can happen to you.
Even if your pet is used to being outside, fireworks or other loud noises may cause them to panic, break their restraint or hop a fence in a frightened attempt to find safety. If you have to bring your dog with you make sure they are on a leash.
