Getting Your Community to Support Dog Parks

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 by Linda Rosado

A dog park is only as good as the people who support it

A dog park is a great addition to any community. It provides a big, open space for dogs to play, exercise and socialize. Parks made specifically for dogs are more beneficial for local communities, dog owners and their pets, as they let owners and pets cohabitate, and pet owners do not have to worry about unleashing their dogs due to unfriendly guests or outside nuisances, like cars and trucks. With that being said, communities can meet dog parks with some hesitation as people worry about safety and cleanliness. DOGIPOT® has some tips and solutions to providing a user-friendly environment that will leave the community with a positive impression of your dog park and earn their support. 

Easy Navigation 

Signs help eliminate confusion. By putting up signs that distinguish each area of the park, guests do not have to worry about unleashing their dogs in areas where it is not permitted, reducing safety concerns. DOGIPOT® has signs available that remind people to clean up after their pets and notify guests of pet exercise areas where dogs can be unleashed and free to interact with other dogs.

Avoid Pet Waste MishapsA dog park is only as good as the people who support it

A lush, green play area for pups speaks for itself when visitors step foot in your dog park, but pet waste that is not picked up is inconvenient and unpleasant for park goers to deal with. It can cause sanitary issues and foul smells inside the park and in the surrounding area.  Pet waste stations are an easy solution to encourage cleanliness, keeping both the community and guests happy. The Poly DOGIPOT® Pet Station is conveniently equipped with everything a pet owner would need. It comes with a trash receptacle, bag dispenser and sign that reminds guest to properly dispose of pet waste. This way if anyone forgets to bring dog waste bags, the park will have some readily available. Little things like this take some stress away from pet owners and will encourage them to keep coming back. 

Keep Them Entertained

At the end of the day, dog parks are about having fun. People bring their pets to dog parks for a special, dog friendly experience. Pet owners want to see their furry friends enjoying themselves and playing. DOGIPOT® has a selection of dog park products that will make your park feel like a doggy jungle gym. Hoops, tables and more are available for dogs to run on and play with. This will leave guests smiling and laughing as they watch their pup explore the park and make new friends. Participating in off-leash exercise and play is important for a dog’s mental condition and physical health, while helping to reduce potentially disruptive behaviors at home.

Making Sure Everything is in Tiptop Shape

A good first impression is unlikely if your dog park is not well kept. Poorly maintained bag dispensers, and overflowing pet waste receptacles will immediately turn people away. Make sure that all park equipment is cleaned regularly to ensure the safety of both visitors and their pets. Taking simple housekeeping measures will go a long way in making the right impression.
