Have You Been to a Dog Park?

My friend Desiree suggested that since I want to exercise more, I should take my dogs to the dog park that’s about 30 minutes away.  I’ve only been to a dog park twice and it was just too hot to appreciate.

With October and cooler weather on the way, I was thinking I should try it out.  I know Mr. Pug would have a good time, but I am not sure about Miss Doxie.  She just isn’t usually that great with other dogs…we’ll see..

Have any of you been to a dog park?  If so, do you have any suggestions for me?  I know I need poop bags, their leashes and harnesses, and sunscreen…what else should I try to remember?

  • Nope. It’s not the greatest idea in the world. My vet — and the one before her — strongly recommend against it. Dog parks, like day-care centers, are sinks of disease. Your kid, who will get sick the minute you stick her into daycare and stay that way until you take her out, at least is on your health insurance. You get to shell out the dough from your own pocket to get your dog over whatever it picked up at the dog park.

    Also, dogs, not being cute little kiddies after all, get into fights at dog parks. The cost of treating kennel cough is as nothing compared to the cost of the surgery required to sew your dog back together, followed by the lawyers’ fees ensuing from the bite your pooch inflicted on the other hapless owner’s ten-year-old who got into the middle of it.

  • I am so glad to hear this…I don’t feel as guilty as I did for never letting my pups have any fun there. I still haven’t taken either of my dogs and now I don’t think I will. Thanks Funny!
