Dogs are our best friends for a reason, and that is because they love to spend time with us. But they also should spend time with their fellow dogs!
If you have only one dog and your pup wasn’t raised with a large litter or among other dogs, a great way to help them socialize is by bringing them to the dog park. However, it is not as straightforward as you might think!
When we walk our dogs we know exactly how long we’re going to be out. We can plan for contingencies and take precautions when there is any danger, but at dog parks, the conditions change a little. You know there’ll be other dogs there, but you don’t always know how many nor how they’ll behave. Even friendly dogs can get a little carried away in the heat of the moment. It is convenient to keep in mind some dog CPR tips to help both your dog and their friends, but not all tips are that life-or-death!
This guide includes lots of tips that will help you make sure you have everything you need to avoid conflict, have fun, and make sure that your doggy gets all the joy and excitement they deserve from this outing!
