Fur children (our dogs) and dog parks…

Today I decided to take Tucker and Sunny to Paradise Valley dog park. As I got them ready putting their leashes on my 14 year old fur child Sassy just wimpered and layed by my husbands feet. She loves to go to the park with us but not the dog park. She is getting old and can’t run around like she used to. But the other two are raring to go! We are fortunate to have quite a few dog parks in the Phoenix Metro Area to choose from. My last count shows 36 dog parks!

I recommend finding several dog parks close by and going and checking them out. Many now have two fenced dog parks. One for the little dogs and one for big dogs. Check to see if there is water available Many have double water fountain-one for pups and one for humans! Some parks just have a water spiggot to fill bowls. Check to see if the area is well maintained-make sure it has grass and not a dust bowl or mud bath. Look for a shade structure and trees.

New to the area or thinking about making the move to the Phoenix area? For information on the 36 dog parks contact me at [email protected]
