Tips for a Fun Day at Your Local Bark Park

The dog park can be a fun and exciting experience for both you and your furry companion. It's a great opportunity for your dog to socialize, as well as burn off excess energy. 

However, there are a few rules and etiquette guidelines to follow to ensure that everyone has a safe and enjoyable time. Here are some things to keep in mind.

  • Keep Your Dog Vaccinated and Healthy – Before they set a paw in the dog park, make sure your dog is up to date on vaccinations and generally healthy. This will help prevent the spread of diseases and ensure that your dog is ready to socialize with other dogs.
  • Keep Your Dog on a Leash Until You Enter the Park – This may seem like a no-brainer, but it's vital to wait until you’re fully in the park with gates closed before unleashing your pup. This will prevent your dog from running off and potentially getting lost or hurt.
  • Don't Bring Toys or Treats – While kind of a bummer, toys can lead to possessiveness and potential fights. Treats can also cause jealousy and aggressive behavior. Instead, let your dog just run and play with the other dogs to burn off their pent-up energy.
  • Monitor Your Dog's Behavior & Know When to Leave – Keep a close eye on your pup to make sure they're not getting too rough, aggressive, or overstimulated. If they show any signs, it's time to take a break. If issues continue, it’s always best to simply call it a day.
  • Pick Up After Your Dog – This is the golden rule of the dog park. No one wants to step in dog poop, so keep an eye out and bring plenty of bags to clean up after your pup right away. Not only is it considerate, but it's also required by law in most areas.
  • Respect Other Dog Owners – The dog park is a shared space, so if another owner brings up an issue or asks you to control and calm your overly enthusiastic companion, do your best to address the situation, even if that means leaving and coming back another time.

Now that you know the etiquette, it’s time to find a dog park near you! Take a look at our list of bark parks in your area. We recommend doing a quick search to check on when the park is open and to take a look at photos to make sure the park is the right fit for your pup.
