|So neat to hear the varied responses
Too funny that in just last night's newspaper, they are discussing opening a dog park within our local park. Of course there is a lot of red tape and planning and expenses to be covered, but it is definitely being considered!
I would probably go to the dog park we went to again, not sure if on a regular basis though, as it is kind of tricky to get to, and not closeby-it is a good half-hour away, plus, if there are no other dogs there (thank goodness for that lady having her 4 dogs there), it would probably be pretty boring and not much different than romping around in our own backyard.
But I am excited and happy to hear they are considering a dog park less than 10 minutes from my house. That would be awesome!! Of course, it will likely be a couple of years before/if it actually happens, but it is sure something nice to hope for!
The same LOCAL park is the one I take him to on occasion (the one they are discussing opening a dog park at), so he can romp freely off-leash on the basketball court (about a 10 foot high fence surrounding it). He really loves that, trotting around, smiling the entire time. So if nothing else, we can take him there and let him have some nice wide open space to run about freely off-leash. The fence goes down flat against the pavement and is very strong and secure, with no holes or gaps near the bottom. So that is always a nice treat for him.
Thanks, everyone, for your replies..it is so interesting to hear others' experiences!!
