Dog Park Etiquette
By Dawn Arkin
You’ve heard about dog parks from your friends, family and even complete strangers. It’s somewhere you can take your best friend so he can frolic happily with other dogs, getting exercise and socialization with members of the canine family. But what do you need to know before you pack up your doggie for a fun filled day? Your best friend can have a great time if you are willing to follow some general, and common sense rules.
1. If your dog has a history of aggression against other dogs or people, do not take him to a dog park. You are just asking for trouble, not to mention putting other people and pets in danger. An aggressive dog isn’t controllable in those conditions and you are financially liable for any damages your dog does as a result of his actions.
