If you have a dog, you know that little ball of fluff is a huge part of your family and one of your best friends. If you love your dogs as much as we do, you want to give them every joy in life that you possibly can. You take them for walks, let them socialize with other dogs, and let them run around and burn off their energy with a game of fetch. Parks are one of the best places to take your pooch for a fun walk, the grass there is much more comfortable for their paws, and chances are, they could meet a friend or two along their walk. Most parks have a nice walking path or a playground for children but are lacking in activities for dogs. Any park can easily be transformed into a puppy’s paradise with the addition of a dog fence for a dog park play area. Mills Fence Co. has proudly installed some of the best dog parks in the tri-state area. Call us today to turn your local park into your dog’s favorite playground.
We all love the idea of letting our dogs run free. They always seem so happy with the wind running through their fur and grass under their paws, but letting your dog loose at a random park could be an accident waiting to happen. All dogs are different, but many dogs express their excitement by running erratically, barking, jumping on people and even taking play bites. If your dog is even slightly skittish, they could bite someone unintentionally or bite another dog that gets too close. Unfortunately, many family dogs have to be put down due to incidents like this that could have been easily avoided by either using a leash or by taking your dog to an enclosed dog park. As responsible dog owners, we owe it to our beloved pets to give them a safe and fun place to run and play with other dogs freely.
Fun For Dogs
Dog parks are much more than safe places for dogs to go running around in, they are literal playgrounds for your dog to explore, meet other dogs in, and learn important social skills. One of the worst things that you can do for your dog’s development is to isolate them from a young age and not socialize them with other dogs. Large dogs especially need to be socialized and trained so that they don’t pose a threat to any joggers, walkers or other dogs. Certain breeds like German Shepherds, Australian Shepherds, and Border Collies need the stimulation of socialization and play to get their physical and mental energy out. If your dog isn’t given the chance to play regularly, you could find yourself stuck with a furniture chewer, a rough houser, or an all-around disobedient dog.
No matter what kind of dog you have, a trip to your local dog park is a great way for them to burn off excess energy, make new friends, and learn important social and developmental skills. You might even find a new friend yourself along the way!
