The Low-Down On Triangle Dog Parks

DogPark

Does your dog enjoy frolicking with other dogs?

Does he want to greet every pooch that comes his way?

Then it may be time to discover one of  the Triangle’s Dog Parks.

Key things to consider about your dog before you go:

1. His temperament (does he get along well with others? Tolerate all sizes and energy levels)?
2. His eating habits (if he enjoys eating poop then you will have to be vigilante)
3. His vaccination records (is he up to date on Rabies, Bordetella, etc)?

Also note, not all dog parks are free and some require you to pick up a permit/pass ahead of time.

    Found this blog post (http://onpointdesignstudio.com/zarathevizsla/romr/) about a cool private property in Chapel Hill that lets you take your dog off leash. The company, Romr, lets you reserve private properties to go camping, fishing, and – of course- off leash dog hiking! That’s pretty awesome!
