Dog Park Tip – Watch your dog

Tip 3: Watch your dog

It can be tempting to lose yourself in conversation or your phone when your dog is contained in an off-leash park. Don’t.


For the safety and well-being of your dog and others’, make sure you know what your dog is up to at all times.

Dog Park Best Practices

Tip 2: Unleash

Remove your dog’s leash–assuming it is safe* to do so–before entering the main park.


A dog on a leash is disadvantaged when first meeting and greeting the unleashed park dogs.

*You should remove your dog’s leash in the front vestibule separating the street from the main park IF both gates are closed and there is no danger of your dog escaping.


Finally! No more waiting in long lines. No more braving the summer heat and winter cold.

You can now buy the widely-acclaimed and coveted, official Shaw Dog Park tshirt online!
