Dog Park Dos and Don’ts
Winchester's Premium Professional Pet Training
Exercise is just as important for your pup as it is for you, and there’s no better way to get good exercise than a day at the dog park. Having enough exercise can alleviate your dog’s anxiety, help eliminate negative behaviors like chewing and keep your dog at a healthy weight so he or she can enjoy a long life.
While most dog parks have plenty of room for running and romping, there is certain etiquette you should know before embarking on your day out at the dog park. To keep your dog and other dogs safe and happy, pay heed to these dos and don’ts for the dog park.
