Dog Park Etiquette 101

Thursday, May 3, 2012 - 1:15pm

The weather’s warming up and dogs across America are getting restless. For urbanites that means heading to the nearest dog park! But before you do, be sure to keep your (and your dog’s!) manners in mind. Here are our top tips for dog park etiquette:

Spay or Neuter Your Pet. Want to take your dog to that fun dog park down the street? Then your dog needs to be spayed or neutered as most dog parks require it. It just makes sense.

Don’t Be a Bully. Sure, we know your pup is an angel…most of the time. But if you simply feel your dog is having a bad day, leave the park and plan to come back at a later time. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

Be Watchful. While dog parks are also great places for humans to meet, remember to keep your attention on your dog and her playmates at all times. If you see signs that play’s not going well, you can step in to stop interaction before things get out of hand.

Scoop the Poop. Accidents happen, but leaving it behind is downright rude. It could result in you being fined, and your dog being banned from the park.

Control Those Parasites!  Fleas and ticks can spread like wildfire at the dog park. If you take your dog to play, be sure to give him a year-round flea control medication like PetArmour, the exclusive flea and tick sponsor of the ASPCA.

After the game, the Heat were quick to leave Atlanta as they made their way to Asia as part of the 2012 NBA China Games. James will be making his ninth trip, but it will be one of the rare times he will be going as a member of his NBA team and not a Nike ambassador. Expect some special Nike events in honor of James second trip to China in as many months.
