Peterborough West Animal Hospital Dog Park


I took Gracie to a brand new privately-owned leash free dog park, and so much fun was to be had! This fenced in happy place was brought to my town by Dr Scott Sargent, owner/operator of the Peterborough West Animal Hospital. Such a generous thing for Dr Sargent to do! 
It's not nearby, this dog park, but it's worth the little drive to get there. It's clean, well fenced, has trees and boulders, and even supplies doggy bags! I was pretty impressed. More importantly, though, Gracie was impressed!
We were lucky to have two other dogs pop in at the same time, so we can really test out the play aspect of a leash free park. Grace had a pretty good time with the basset hound & little white dog. The basset hound stole the show with his short-legged running & hefty howly bark!

Gracie & her two playmates

the rules of the dog park: "most of all have fun!!!"

Gracie runs free
Gracie loved her freedom, without fear of being yelled at or getting ticketed! :)

I'm looking forward to more leash free dog parks coming to my town. It's very much needed near the downtown area, where lots of dogs live in apartments and could use a good run & social time. I had hoped the City would partition a part of the Parks we already have to host such a thing, but no such luck. Who knows, though, maybe one day?
In the meantime, my town's Dog Park Association seems to finally have been given a lot of land by the City in which to host a big leash free dog park. It's kind of out of the way, but still, it's a start! It's much better than me driving almost an hour out of town to take my dog to a leash free park!
Before I had Grace, I never thought about leash free dog parks ... and now, it's something that I'm pretty passionate about. Dogs aren't meant to be constantly tugged on by a collar & leash; they need to run free! Just like any of us on this planet.
Sometimes I just don't get along with civilization. Y'know what I mean? Sometimes I just want my dog to run.
with joy,
Caren

    And I actually do have 2 questions for you if you don't mind. Is it only me or does it give the impression like a few of these remarks look like left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting on additional online social sites, I'd like to follow everything

    and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that not enough
    men and women are speaking intelligently about. I'm very happy I found this during my search for something concerning this.
