What about . . . . dog parks in DFW?

Today was the day – the Railroad Park Dog Park in Lewisville was reopened after over two weeks of locked gates! If you haven’t been yet, you should really make the trip – your dogs will love you for it. It’s got separate areas for small and large dogs, covered benches for the humans, with drinking water for dogs and humans, and the sod is in great condition. Plenty of parking and nice visual vistas make the pleasant for humans too.

You can get more information and maps at the City of Lewisville’s website, just click on the link above.

I also received great news for those of you that live in Frisco – the city has moved up your proposed Dog Park up the priority list. This news was spread via email from Sarah Perham, President of Frisco Dog Park, Inc., and she credits your emails of support sent to the Mayor and City Council for helping to convey how important this issue is for the residents of Frisco. The next Council Meeting is on March 11th, so continue the good work and keep those emails coming.
 

There are many great dog parks in the area now, hopefully we will soon have one in every city so that dog socialization and exercise are convenient for everyone. I’ve recapped the area dog parks below.

There are several websites that list dog parks by area like www.dogparkusa.com, but they are not all kept up-to-date, so check more than one to be safe. They list general information, so that you don’t have to visit each city’s website to get hours of operation, locations and maps, and hotline numbers.

Most of the dog parks have a published phone number to call for information, be sure and call first if you aren’t sure the park will be open because of weather or maintenance. Dog parks are typically open six days a week and closed one day for maintenance – check the website for which day of the week for your park.
 

For more info:  If you are interested in learning more about dog training or different ways to solve problems and communicate with your dog, there are many places you can start, including the link to www.clickertraining.com. As always, you can email me at TAMIam@training-spot.net with any questions or comments, or for help with specific issues that you are having with your dog.

    I LOVE the Lewisville dog park! It's 5 minutes from my house. Great place to play chuck-it with my dogs and (try to) wear out my border collie!
