Dog Parks Near Old Town

Would you like an easy way to increase your dog’s activity level and well being? Dogs parks can easily wear your dog out and create a day of fun. If a dog is fully socialized, they often love meeting and playing with other dogs partly because they evolved as living in groups with other dogs. With regular visits to the dog park, your pooch will likely find familiar playmates and you’ll meet other pet parents. To visit dog parks responsibly, keep vaccinations current and remember to supervise at all times. It’s best to start socializing your dog as a puppy, and we’re happy to lend behavioral training tips during one of our comprehensive wellness exams. For your convenience, we’ve compiled a useful list of dog parks near Old Town for easy access to fun only a short distance from the neighborhood.
