Explore the different ways building a dog park can benefit your community.
Dog Parks Are Good For You!
Social, Physical, Mental, and Emotional Benefits
As we know, dog parks are great for dogs! They provide a safe space where dogs can exercise, socialize, challenge themselves, and bond with their owners and other pups. Did you know that dog parks are good for people too?
When we take our pups to the dog park, we tend to mimic their behavior. We are actively playing, socializing with our neighbors, and challenging ourselves, you may even find yourself going through a tunnel or climbing the A-frame! This activity and social interaction provides a combination of social, physical, mental, and emotional health benefits.
Dog Park Community
Dog parks are filled with a diverse group of people from all walks of life, who are instantly connected by one commonality, they all LOVE dogs. This instant connection is unique to dog parks, breaking down the barriers of the outside world, cultivating friendships, and bonding community members that may not have crossed paths otherwise.
