Let’s Go to the Dog Park!

Tis the season for the dog park! Although we might believe this is an easy, breezy activity, it is also very important that you practice proper dog park etiquette.

To start, it’s important to take your dogs temperament into consideration. You know your dog better than anyone so make sure they are having a good time and not becoming aggressive or feeling fearful. There are many do’s and don’ts.  Take these into consideration:

Don’t:
Take a dog under 4 months old
Let your dog off their leash unless you are confident in their obedience to your verbal commands
Let your dog bully another dog
Stay on your cell phone, it’s important to have full attention on your dog at all times
Bring or use treats and toys when other dogs are near
Being your dog to a park if they are uncomfortable

Do:
Make sure your dog is current on vaccines
Clean up after your dog
Supervise any play time with another dog
Know when to interfere when dogs seem to be getting aggressive or uncomfortable
Be willing to leave the park if your dog is no longer having fun or being bullied

Going to the park is a super fun activity! However, there are many factors to take into consideration before going and while there. You always wants to make sure your furry friend is safe and having a good time! Don’t forget water!:)

I am a three year old German Shepherd from South Georgia.  I don’t really have a favorite toy because my favorite things are sleeping and getting petted on the head. Although if I do get up some energy I will admit that I love getting into the trash to look for napkins.

My brother Teddy is lots of fun to play with, plus he usually takes the blame for my chewing.  I really like him for that!  I love to bark a lot; sometimes my humans do not appreciate that so much.  I am SUPER special because I am a white German Shepherd and that is not so common I hear.
