Many who travel with dogs appreciate having an exercise area where the dogs can be off of their leashes. It’s a marvelous feature after long hours on the road or cooped up indoors.
Some places have unique rules, such as maybe allowing one “family” of dogs at a time. This gives each family some safe and relaxing play time, especially for the more timid pets. All require cleaning up afterward. After all, pets are typically welcomed as long as their owners are responsible.
These dog parks aren’t intended to be baby sitters for your pets. The 2-legged owners of these 4-legged cuties are required to stay at the dog park during the entire off-leash time.
Please, always follow the park’s rules so that everybody has the chance to enjoy this too-rarely found campground amenity.
