A dogi park is a park for dogs to get recreations with different types exercise. A dog park is usually full of different breeds of dogs. Dogs of different breeds gather in one place under the supervision of their owner in a controlled environment.
Dogi parks have different features in different location, although they typically offer a 4′ to 6′ fence, separate double-gated entry and exit points, adequate drainage facilities, benches for dog owners and visitors, shade for hot days, parking close to the site, water, pooper-scooper to pick up and dispose of animal waste in covered trash cans, and regular maintenance and cleaning of the grounds. Dog parks may also offer wheel-chair access, a pond for swimming and a separate enclosure for small dogs.
Some dog parks have two separate spaces for both large dogs and small dogs. Most of the dog parks have one large area for dogs of all sizes to make them socialized in a single frame. However, there are some dangerous breeds of dogs that can be very dangerous for other dogs in these parks.
Dogi park growth
December 2011: Dog parks are the fastest-growing segment of city parks. There were 569 off-leash dog parks in the 100 largest U.S. cities in 2010, a 34 percent jump in 5 years, while overall parks increased only 3 percent. Portland, Oregon has the highest per capita in the US with 5.7 dog parks for every 100,000 residents. Calgary, AB has the highest per capita in North America, with 15.9 dog parks for every 100,000 residents. There are now more American households with dogs than with kids of 43 million and 38 million respectively. “It’s a playground for people without kids.”
Children in dogi parks
In Houston, Texas, some dog parks allow kids inside if they are properly chaperoned by a guardian, while others exclude children. The Houston Dog Park Association, a non-governmental club, said that adults should be cautious about bringing children inside a dog park and be aware that it is hard to keep a careful eye on both the dog and a child.
Public dog parks, on the other hand, are specially fenced. Some special guidelines help everyone to take extra care of their pets.
