Dog park basics
You have a dog in your life who loves to head out of the house. This means that she is often looking for fun things to do outside, and a dog park seems like a great place to spend some time. What should you know about an area like this before heading out?
Your dog will need to have some basic social skills in order to get along with others when at the dog park, so be sure to encourage appropriate behavior while there and to work on this when at home as well. Stay near your dog so you can keep a close eye on her and tend to her needs as they arise. It’s also important to take the time to learn the rules of each park you visit, as these can change from place to place. Your local Murrieta, CA veterinarian can offer additional guidance.
