Dog Parks in Nanaimo & Osoyoos

By Pet Access Guy | May 3, 2013

imgres-20Today, If you’re on the island, or enjoying this beautiful weather in the beautiful city of Osoyoos, we have off-leash dog parks for you!

If you’ve discovered an off-leash park somewhere, let me know! I’d love to feature more!

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!
