Dog Park Etiquette
  • Keep walking or playing- this helps keep off-leash area “neutral” territory for all.
  • Keep your dog on leash until you enter the off-leash areas, and carry a leash on you for each dog at all times while in the park.
  • Dogs shall be under your visual contact and control at all times; stay within close range of your dog.
  • Be aware that dogs have different play styles.  Talk to your veterinarian, talk to other park users and educate yourself on dog behavior.
  • Ensure each gate closes behind you before you enter the next one.
  • Fill in any holes your dog digs or make appropriate repairs to disturbed areas.
  • Do not bring a dog with a known history of biting or fighting.
