Tips for Introducing your dog to dog parks

 

My Pet Pail at the Dog ParkMy Pet Pail is the perfect addition for a trip to the dog park. Since this all-in-one, stylish pail has everything you need for a day at the park your best friend will never go without their dog bowls, dog collar, dog leash, doggy bags, fresh water and even dog food. The My Pet Pail even has extra storage to bring along treats for your dog, perfect for reinforcing good behavior. Although taking your dog to the dog park can be a rewarding experience for both of you, there are some things to keep in mind before you head to the park.

If you have puppies under 12 weeks old, it’s too early. Puppies usually aren’t done with their immunizations prior to this, and its likely their immune systems can’t handle something older dogs can shake off.

Make sure your pet is in good health and up to date on all their shots. It’s important not just for your dog but every dog in the park. If your dog is sick, leave them home to recuperate. If you’ve gotten a new dog from a pet rescue, make sure to bring them to your vet for a checkup prior to heading to the dog park.

Remember you are in charge. It’s important that you establish dominance and your pet responds to you when called. This is for their safety. Having treats for your dog can help with dog training at the park since they react so well to positive reinforcement of good behavior.

Most of all pay attention to your best friend. Your dog depends on you to keep them safe. Watch other dogs’ interactions with your dog and vice-versa. The best way to keep every dog in the dog park safe is to be observant. Make sure your pet has plenty of water as the extra activity tends to dehydrate your pooch. You can be ready with your My Pet Pail to provide all the water your puppy will need for the day.
