I have had a large dog since I moved into the city 11 years ago. Many people thought I was crazy to have a big dog in a small apartment. To me it just meant finding places inner loop to take Peety dog (and now Zukey too) for excercise.
Most of our weekends start off with a trip to the dog park. In our house you can’t mention the word park until you are ready to go, as the dogs go crazy with excitement. Our favorite dog park is the Danny Jackson Family Dog Park, which is just a quick drive. It’s located off Westpark and Newcastle.
The park is fully fenced and has a small side for the little dogs and one for the large dogs. Having the dog park fenced is such an awesome feature so I know my dogs are safe. It’s a great park with a pond which all the dogs swim in and a covered area for owners to sit and watch their dogs. My favorite feature is the wash station. No worries about how dirty they get! I love clean dogs and here they provide hoses and water, so the dogs get baths before heading home.
I’ve met some great people (and their dogs) at the park. Dogs don’t worry about not having a yard or only a small yard when they get to come to this HUGE yard and play with friends. My dogs are very happy, which makes me happy.
