Dog Park Etiquette

 Littermates Tripp, Oliver, Lily and Barley enjoy a good run at the Dog Exercise area in Mukwonago, Wisconsin.

Is your dog a good candidate for the dog park?  

How should you handle "situations" there when they arise? (Because they most certainly will!)  

What's appropriate behavior and what's not?

Find out all this and more in this excellent article on The Whole Dog Journal.

 

By Pat Miller at The Whole Dog Journal

Depending on who you talk to, dog parks are either the greatest invention since microwave ovens or the devil incarnate – either the perfect place to exercise and socialize your dog, or the best environment in which to traumatize your dog, make him dog-reactive, and perhaps get him killed. We’re told that perception is reality, but these two perceptions are worlds apart. Which one is right?

They both are. Your local dog park can be a terrific place to take your dog, provided it is well-constructed, well-maintained, and well-monitored. It can also be you and your dog’s worst nightmare. What determines which perception will be your reality?

In a word, it’s all about etiquette. If you understand the rules of dog park etiquette – and if other park users also understand and follow the same rules, you can be in dog park heaven. When etiquette goes by the wayside, you have a classic recipe for disaster.
