The Benefits of Dog Parks

Saturday, August 27, 2016

They’ve worked with people for thousands of years herding and protecting livestock and controlling vermin. Most pet dogs spend their days alone on the couch or in their dog bed waiting for their owners to come home to take them out for a walk or to toss around some of their dog toys. They eat dog food from bowls-no hunting or scavenging required. Many dogs become bored, lonely and overweight.

Dog parks are becoming more popular across the United States. They come in all sizes but have one main purpose, to allow dogs to run freely off their dog leash and socialize with other dogs.  Dog parks are not for everyone but they can benefit both people and their pets.

We will talk about whether you should try a dog park in later posts. A dogs disposition and socialization makes a big difference.

I would like to thank Web MD for providing some of this valuable information.
