With it being such a sizeable park, we were able to divide the large dog park to then create this low energy section for the more old-timers and mellow fellows. Having so many volunteers, we were able to gravel the whole park to not only make it look nicer, but also make it more accessible when muddy and more manageable for the city to maintain. We also had time to build two new shade pavilions in the areas lacking shade and touched up the paint on the ones we built the year before.

Let’s play: Pet Enrichment Ideas

It’s hard to beat one on one time with your pet. Roughhousing in the living room, Frisbee, fetch and tug-of-war are all great examples of activities for dogs inside the house or backyard.
