Are Dog Parks Good For Your Dog?

According to the ASPCA, dogs are used to working alongside people; and working hard. Hunting for food was a big part of their lives. Today’s dog spends most of his time alone, sleeps on the couch, and visits the bowl to munch and crunch. They have lots of energy but nowhere to displace it.  They can become bored and overweight which can lead to bad behavior.

Socialization at a dog park can alleviate some of those problems. But says Cesar, do it slowly. Maybe just once a week to start and just a slow introduction. Don’t let him race into a doggy crowd. He will gradually want to move into a social structure and enjoy it.  And it’s great physical and mental exercise for dogs. But only you can decide if dog parks are good for your dog.

People enjoy dog parks too. Socialization with other people is good for many, (especially if they don’t see many people on a daily basis), and the opportunity for some off-leash training is always good for Fido. And it’s a good idea to check out the dog park alone the first time; just to see where he will be playing.

There have been lots of improvements to the park thanks to a generous donation from a local funeral director and huge dog lover, Thomas B. Dobies.  The dog park is open seven days a week from dawn until dusk, so stop by anytime.

Oelsner Park In Port Richey. For well over 50 years, Oelsner Park has been part of the life of the residents of Port Richey;  and with it’s playground and covered gazebos and spectacular water views, that’s easy to understand.  I heard that dolphins show up from time to time (unfortunately, not while I was there).
