The Reality of Dog Parks

Roughly stated, a dog park is a fenced area where dogs are allowed to run around for their pleasure. Owners socialize as they watch their little fuzzy babies careen, romp, and play with their friends. At the end of a visit, most of these dogs are thoroughly exhausted and go home to a night of deep slumber. In an urban environment, this kind of facility offers an outlet for animal lovers and cuts down on animal control problems. It is similar to the way organized parks cut down on kids’ playing baseball in the streets. Having a convenient, well-maintained dog park is a blessing for any community... or not.
