In order to have fun and be safe while in the dog park there are a few rules that need to be adhered to, the following will outline things to do and not to do.

• If there is a pack of dogs at the gate, wait until the crowd goes away.

 
• Watch all dogs closely,{ not just your own}, observe the level of play and
interrupt them if they get too rambunctious. Move around so your dog will
have to watch you closely.

 
• If your dog seems afraid remove them from the park.

 
• If your dog is being a bully remove them from the park.

 
• If your dog just wants to leave the park, respect that and go home,
don’t stay, hoping things will get better.

 
• Refrain from taking toys to the park as this will increase the opportunity
for resource guarding.

 
•Don’t believe that your dog can solve problems with other dog’s on their
own, this can lead to disaster.

 
• Don’t just talk with other people or chat on your phone, pay
close attention to your dog while at the park.

 
• Don’t take advice from other people in the park, they
may not understand their dogs behavior.

 
• Don’t assume a dog is aggressive just because it is showing
discomfort.

 
If you follow this simple tips you will increase your chances of
having a fun time at the park.
