Taking your puppy to the park

These parks can be a wonderful and safe place for your pup provided that both humans and their canine friends follow some basic rules.  First, not all dogs should be taken to the dog park. If your pup is very young, don’t take him to the park until he is a  bit older and could run and play with the other dogs.  If your dog has behavioral or health issues, don’t take him to the dog park.  While you’re at the park, make sure that your dog comes and sits on command.  Keep barking to a minimum. To avoid conflicts, don’t give treats around other dogs and follow all dog leash rules.  Make sure you also watch you manners.  Avoid disciplining another persons dog and make sure you clean up after your own.
