Dog Parks – Coquitlam, Parksville & Qualicum Beach!

By Pet Access Guy | April 26, 2013

We’re nearing the end of April and I’ve really been enjoying the weather! Going to get into camping season pretty quick here, which means plenty of adventures for us!imgres-19

Why not start a (local) adventure this weekend, by visiting your local dog park? Sounds like a great idea!!

DOG PARK ETIQUETTE:

  • Keep your pet on leash if there isn’t a sign stating that dogs may run off-leash.
  • Always carry a leash even in a leash-free area. You never know when you may need it.
  • Don’t let your dog harass other pets, people, or wildlife.
  • Make sure your dog has reliable recall if you allow him to run off-leash.
  • Always keep your dog in sight and within voice range.
  • Make sure your dog is up-to-date on his vaccinations.
  • Don’t bring female dogs in heat to the dog park.
  • Don’t bring young puppies. Their immune systems are not yet fully developed.
  • Never bring more dogs than you can handle if a situation were to arise.
  • Don’t bring toys – they may cause guarding or territorial issues.
  • If your dog starts behaving aggressively, leash him immediately and leave.
  • Leash-free areas are not suitable for aggressive dogs.
  • No digging! Fill in any holes your dog has created.
  • Respect the rules of the dog park.
  • Clean up after your dog… every time!
