A Paw-ful Place to Play: Innovative Dog Parks

There’s nothing like spending a day outside with our dogs. Large dogs, small dogs and all dogs in between love getting out for a stretch walk and run! Well structured dog parks make spending time with our pets even more fun.

There are over 1,000 designated dog parks throughout the US and Canada alone! Finding a place to take your pup isn’t really that hard. But, if you need help finding one that’s just right for your dog here are a few helpful resources: DogParkUSA , DogPark , PawNations 5-Paw Dog Parks and HauteDogs

More and more parks have become innovative in their amenities, offering more than just a bit of grass and a trail or two. Dog parks have become focus destinations and with features like these…

Agility courses
Swimming pools, ponds and lakes
Designated doggie beach areas
Self serve as well as full service dog wash facilities
Weather shelters
Fully fenced off-leash areas as well as completely fenced off-leash parks
On site doggie daycare and boarding services
Poop bag waste stations
Human facilities such as wheelchair access, full lighting, benches, tables, picnic areas, restrooms

…a day at the park is so much more than it used to be!

From public to private parks, the amenities are becoming more varied and unique. Along with improved amenities also comes attention to park rules and regulations. Some designated dog parks require entrance or annual use fees. Other parks have designated large and small dog areas, treat and food restrictions and aggressive dog restrictions. Be sure to check specific park regulations before your visit!

Even a short day at the park requires the proper supplies. Come prepared with a Man Kind Dog Dog Dish Assortment. It’s got everything you need to make your day at the dog park a great one!
