Introduction to Dog Parks!
Introduction to Dog Parks!
Dog Park is an enclosed area for dog lovers to bring their dogs to mingle, play and socialize. It is also a great area for humans to do some catch up while exercising their pooches.
We are very fortunate in Singapore, as we do have numbers of Dog Parks to bring our dog to. Do you believe we have 13 Dog Parks in Singapore! Apart from the 13 Dog Runs that are in Service, we are expecting 2 more to be added by The year 2018.

To be honest I am not a believer of Dog Run. Studies have shown, Dog Parks is the #1 area that dogfight occurred.
Why? this is because Dog Run Users are usually the regulars. Most of the Dog Runs I went, very often, the pack orders have been established. And any newcomers are regarded as an intruder.
And the most dangerous point is the Entry-Exit. Due to space constraints, both Entry and Exit are the usually the same gate. If you are observant, you will realize most tensions erupt at this area.
Here are my 6 suggestions how you can reduce your risk of dogfight at the Dog Run;
1. Observe the vibes outside the dog run, if you foresee any unusual tensions it might be better not to bring your dog in,
2. If you want to enter, quickly move through the gates and proceed to move to the inner area of the dog run,
3. Maintain the leash on your dog and allows your dog to settle down (5-10 mins working on basic commands),
4. Release your dog, however, keep a look out for your dog whereabout at all time,
5. Practise recalls in an interval of 15-30 mins to get your dog always to respond to you and to be mindful of your presence,
6. Last by not least, recall your dog the final time and leash before leaving the dog run.
I know that Dog Runs are great venues to catch up with friends and fellow dog lovers, but I like to remind you, it is your duty to ensure your dog's safety and well beings. If you do not pay attention to the whereabouts of your dog on the run, how are you going to ensure his safety?
The Safety Net of our dog is the Owner and I expect full responsibility from all dog owners. To You, He is Just a Dog, But to Your Dog, You Are Everything!
Have fun & stay positive!
