our favorite place

sandy bottom is our favorite place to go. they have over 5 miles of trails that i can run and play on and also a doggie park for the days i don't feel like going so far. the best part is that it is rarely crowded. i can actually enjoy being out on the trail with little distractions!

Hampton- Sandy Bottom Bark Park

large fenced in area, with lots of trees for shade, benches, water fountain for dogs, and nearby lakes for swimming... Costs $10 per year, must have shots including kennel cough, be 4 months old, not in heat, and have a city/county license, children under 13 are not allowed in park, and those 13-17 must be accompanied by adult, choke/prong collars are not permitted (only snap/release collars). pros- located in a park with trails, nice and shady, usually always someone there with their dog(s), large enough for dogs to run, city maintians the park, free poop-bags for clean-up cons- lots of trees with roots to trip on, the fence is only waist high, so if your dog is a jumper may not be the place to go, and finally: the rangers don't always patrol (therefore anybody can come in, even those who aren't members- which is wrong on many different levels). Main issues with this include people that don't vaccinate their pets and bring them into the park risk infecting other dogs (especially paying members), and people who bring in aggressive dogs that are not well socialized. Other issues of concern are those who don't know proper dog park etiquette: - releasing dog off lead, before opening gate (park is double gated, which allows you to enter into a small enclosure, before opening into larger park enclosure). Keeping dog on lead in the park is dangerous, and causes aggression/fear for dog on lead and others trying to play... as well as stressing owner. - owners who bring food/treats into park.. This causes food/resources protection/aggression. It is also rude to feed other people's dogs, especially when you're not sure if they can eat certain foods... (some owners don't feed certain things, i.e. biscuits containing wheat, or some dogs have allergies). - owners who bring children into the park (breaking rules, but also not dog/child savvy) (this can be dangerous for the children, especially with large packs of dogs running and knocking over children). - owners who allow their dogs to jump the fence to retrieve balls/sticks... This is showing other dogs that jumping fence is ok, and it is also very dangerous...
