“Effective January 1 2014 This will become an official Erie County Off-Leash dog park. Thanks to Friends of Ellicott Inc we have made this happen. This park is an island that can only be accessed by 1 bridge so dogs run free there. There is a one half mile loop path that people walk around with their pets following and playing. Now really a designated dog park! Double gates installed, Rules and regulations should be observed so we can keep it this way.”
Friendly Dogs Only Please
There are few Off-Leash dog parks like this one. If you have a problem dog that does not behave well off leash - please consider whether this is a good place to bring your pet. There are many parks you can walk your dog on a leash. Be considerate of the good dogs that run around free and play well with others right here in this park!
unfortunate social experience
I was delighted today to find a new place to walk my dog rather than just thru my neighborhood, which was getting quite boring. I noticed signs that dogs must be leashed, however saw that many were running free. My dog was happy and met a lot of dogs along the path, leashed and unleashed. Then a pack of 3 dogs came running up. Their owners were close-by thankfully, the dogs walked past us, dogs sniffing each other, then they turned back and came back to investigate my dog further. Next thing I know MY DOG WAS IN A FIGHT!!!!!!!!! It was so fast I hardly knew what happened. I have NEVER seen that in my life, my dog is very friendly and never has fought before. Then again it's not everyday there is a little "pack" off leash that we come into. I saw some posturing for a split second and then the sudden fighting. I don't even know how it started. Thankfully the guy that was there with his wife was able to grab my dogs leash and get it to me. I had dropped it when I saw the crazy fighting ensuing and I was the only one holding a leash. I was ill prepared for a dog fight I admit, but there IS A LEASH LAW THAT IS BEING DISOBEYED. I don't go to dog parks for that very reason, because they are off leash. **SIGH** Sad my 5 year old border collie/labrador retriever mix had a bad social experience....
Khloe absolutely loves it here! The dogs are friendly and under control, the people are nice, and it's overall a great experience. (You *do* have to keep an eye out for the dog warden, though!)
