Dog Parks

I tend to stay away from the dog parks, due to so many people have told me negative things about then. I would like to know the dog owners opinion on dog parks at RV Parks. I am headed into New Mexico and they tell me there isn't much grass around and that the dog parks are the best option. Just wondering how everyone else feels.

We use them when we are close to them. Our guy is 15 and can't walk to far or long any more but he does enjoy them. Only thing I don't care for is people with aggressive dogs. Most times they are ok.

The RV park we are at in Flagstaff backs up to 1.8 million acres of the Coconino National Forest. There are a hundred miles of trails and incredible places. Our dogs approve!

Dog Parks

Most are OK - The biggest problem we've found with any dog park, campground related or anywhere else, is the dog owners that let their dog go 'nuts' and tend to bother other dogs. Aggressive behavior and uncontrolled pets can pose a problem whether their in a dog park and just around the campsite.
Our Vet also mentioned that some diseases can be transmitted via feces that dogs merely get close enough to smell.

We use the campground and public dog parks all the time. Our little (15 lb) guy loves them.

We very seldom use dog parks. We have very small dogs (5 - 8#) and they can easily slip through gaps in the gates. And, they are rather skittish around larger dogs. Ours don't need much room to romp.

Steve and Maryann, The reason I don't use the dog parks is because my friends dog got sick and her vet did say they can get stuff from other dogs. Been in Colorado now for 2 weeks, I just keep away from them. Like everyone says, there's lots of other places to walk them.
