Dog friendly parks
Find a local off-leash dog park for you and your dog to enjoy. And don’t forget to take your doggy-poo bag!
Off-leash dog areas, or dog parks, provide a community setting in which people can gather and socialise and where they can observe the interaction of groups of dogs at play. Dog parks the world over allow owners and their dogs to spend time together while the dog satisfies its cravings for canine play and companionship.

Important things to remember.
Take your doggy-poo bags.
Allowing dogs off-leash in the safety of a dog park is an excellent way to socialise dogs, but they must be supervised at all times.
Some people keep their dogs locked up in a crate during the week, only to unleash their dogs in a dog park on the weekend without proper exercise, creating mayhem; and still others allow dogs with illnesses or unvaccinated dogs to run alongside healthy dogs.
Take a toy suitable for the dog park to interact with your pet.
Ensure your dog is well hydrated. Make sure there is water at the park or nearby or, especially on hot days, take a bowl and a bottle of water if you can.
