Enjoy off-leash dog parks safely this summer

Calgary is a haven for dog lovers, with numerous off-leash dog parks across the city. However, it’s important to ensure that off-leash interactions are safe and enjoyable for everyone.

Here are some steps you can take:

Keep your licence up to date

Make sure that your dog is wearing its licence tag and that it is up to date: if your dog becomes lost, its licence is its ticket home. The risk for having an unlicensed dog is a $250 fine. 

Know your dog

Did you know? Research has shown that our emotional state and confidence play a huge role in how our dogs respond. A study has shown that dogs’ cortisol levels change to match their owners’. This is a reflection of how strong our bonds are with our pets. Some off-leash parks have fenced areas where owners can schedule a play date or utilize them if their pet isn’t quite up to speed on their recall skills. This still allows their pet to get exercise and have some fun off-leash. 

Supervision and control

Keep a close eye on your dog. Stay within a reasonable distance and maintain control over their actions. One of the best ways to safeguard for a stress-free outing is to ensure your dog has strong recall skills. 

Bring essential supplies

Carry supplies such as water, waste bags, and toys for your dog. Clean up after your pet to maintain cleanliness and hygiene in the park.
