Very concerning….Dog Park goers be aware, be alert and be proactive!

February 9, 2010

I received information today about an alert for those living in NYC who take their dogs to dog parks and runs and the threat of poisonous substances in or around these areas.  It is very important to always be alert of the environment in which we allow our dogs to play and also, to relieve themselves.   When I am traveling with my dogs, which is often, I tend to use rest areas to relieve my dogs. I do not walk directly through the “dog run” area due to safety reasons.  Be aware of what other owners have not picked up, other dog’s poo is not something you want your dog walking through.  Also avoid areas of standing water, this is not a healthy way to allow your dog to hydrate and pay attention to what is on the ground.  Do not allow your dog to eat the various items on the ground.  What does this mean for you as a dog owner?  Pay attention to your dog and the environment you subject them to, your dog’s safety is your responsibility.
