The Dog Park People


A simple lesson in etiquette

Posted by Phil Dunkerly on August 2, 2012 at 3:40 PM

I wanted to make a comment today about the state of the park. The benches look amazing, the water pump is terribly convenient, and the snow fence saved my dogs from getting the nasty itchies...

All the volunteers of the park have busted their butts to make the park as wonderful as it is for all of our dogs to enjoy...

...considering all the work that people have put into this gathering area for our furry friends, why is it such a battle to keep the park free of poops?! It's really not difficult. The wonderful volunteers even leave spare bags, in case someone has forgotten them! Today at 12:00 I picked up 14 landmines. This isn't a rare occurrence, but lately, after all this work has gone into maintaining and upgrading our dogs' park, it's frustrating to know that there are people taking advantage of those who try so hard.

Sorry for the rant. Please pick up after your dogs.

I joined through PayPal I did not receive a membership card. I have also donated bags. We do enjoy the park , good for dog owners whom we meet there, & Of course great for our little dog. Regards to the messes left We notice some owners are too busy chatting to see where their dogs goes. If we see a situation we point it out.

Can not go to your meetings, have my church council meeting on the same day & time. My little dog Morgan & I enjoy the park, he has had his lessons in socializing.I feel some dogs owners should be more attentive have seen droppings left. When Morgsn & I go out pooh bags are always with us. It's tough to educate others to do the same
