Supporting the Creation of a Dog Park

What does it mean to be supporting the creation of a dog park? Dog parks are the “in” place to be and attract pet parents to progressive communities. Some political officials are now running on the basis of supporting the creation of a dog park.

However, it takes a lot more than political clout to create a dog park. Local dog trainers can be recruited to develop responsible pet parents through the AKC S.T.A.R. puppy program and certify dogs as Canine Good Citizens. This will ensure that dog owners using the park will understand dog behavior and know how to encourage others to be responsible for positive behavior from their dogs.

Fundraisers such as dog walks, contests and dog splashes can also be used to raise money. People’s love for dogs brings them together to create a common ground across social and economic barriers to either contribute their money or their time to have a place for their dogs to play.

    Hello, nice to come to your blog!

  • I like your vantage point. My research has shown your ideas to be true, but I have also seen the opposite from other articles like this one. Do you have any ideas for finding more legitimate information on dog training or related topics? I would certainly appreciate it!

    Talitha, Thanks for connecting with us. The dog park has opened to the great delight of the dogs and their parents. Since I have crossed over to the positive approach, I tend to check out what the like-minded people at the Association of Pet Dog Trainers are thinking about. They have perspectives from both sides, like I do. Those of us that have been around awhile tend to look at life from our pet’s view to keep the lines of communication open and love unconditionally.

    Visit us again,
    Amelia and Schatzi
