You will find that a properlydesigned and managed private dog park is a dramatically different experience than what you haveread about or have witnessed in public parks. A privately run dog park can properly screen, staffand enforce park regulations. We do caution you that even with the information you will gain fromthis article, please know that any dog park is not regulated, so we encourage everyone to do theirhomework before visiting any dog park to ensure it is right for you and your dog.The current trend is that community and homeowner associations are responding to communitydemand by setting aside a small plot of their land for a public dog park. Unfortunately theseunmanaged and unregulated fenced areas often turn to that of neighbor confrontation, injury andhorror, even with the best of intending groups and dog owners. Lets face it, without any oversightor enforcement, incidents are going to occur. Because I recognized the dangers in dog parks tothe point that I would not take my dogs to one, I was motivated to devise the complex recipe for asafe off-leash dog park. Therefore; I conducted an in-depth investigation of many existing dogparks to establish the precise formula needed to create an off-leash haven.I visited many, talked with visiting dog owners and observed many dog parks, both private andpublic. From my investigative travels and with my inherent understanding of dogs, I developed thecomplex operating matrix for a safe, off-leash dog park. Since that design work, we havesuccessfully opened the first of our many private dog parks that thousands of qualifying dogs andtheir owners have already enjoyed. Our safety performance at the Royal Paws Dog Park &Doggie Day Camp facility speaks for itself with an impeccable safety performance and industryleading staffing ratio.Benefits to your Dog with Off-Leash ExerciseThe benefits to a dog at an off-leash dog park or any open area of land are immense. Unleashedrunning elevates heart rate, increases metabolism, improves gastrointestinal efficiency, andextends muscles and joints, all of which contributes to general overall fitness. It is known thatmaintaining such a healthy lifestyle for your loved dog will increase longevity and reduce risk of allassociated conditions and diseases that obesity can cause. The experience for your dog in openfield run is like no leashed exercise we can otherwise provide and the benefits will last a lifetime.When letting your dog run in an open field for exercise value, please consider that there are manyrisks to both you and your dog. You may be violating leash laws, the dog can track a scent or getlost, run into traffic or unwelcome neighborhood area, confront aggressive dogs or dangerouswildlife or foliage; which are all of the reasons as why I do not take my dogs to any open land
without fences despite their excellent obedience.In fenced area designated as a dog park, in addition to fitness improvement, your dog can enjoybenefits from the social interaction with the other dogs IF experienced without incident. Theadvantage for a dog that is well exercised and socialized benefit the dog, the owner and thecommunity ONLY IF they have somehow avoided traumatic incident. Well exercised andsocialized dogs are much less likely to contribute to neighborhood nuisances like chronic barkingor showing aggression to other dogs.If public parks could operate as well-run private dog park do, these benefits would be maintained.Unfortunately, many dog parks are not continuously regulated nor do they have the resources orknowledge to accurately screen the dogs; therefore, odds are that incidents will occur. Incidentslike your dog being attacked by another dog or even being bullied by another dog can causeregression in social skills, cause behavioral issues, invoke fear aggression or cause physical injuryor death. Following any incident at a public park, without a safe and regulated choice of privatedog park that can best create positive experiences to overcome the impact of the incident, yourdog may never physically or emotionally recover from the past trauma. The likelihood of goodexperiences for your dog in a well-managed private dog park is the reason that many loved dogowners everywhere chose private over non-regulated public parks.Premise of a Safe Dog Park - Its PrivateThe advantages a private dog park has over any public dog park is the ability to secure morefavorable, larger parcels of land, improved grounds maintenance, set dog health requirements,enforceable park rules, screening of appropriate tempered dogs and third party intervention.Beware though and do your homework about any private dog park you intend to visit. Justbecause they can do all of the above does not mean that they do! While it is integral that theprivate dog park has the ability to control all of the above to make visits to a well-managed privatedog park enjoyable, the most important to me are the health and temperament screening andability of park staff to intervene.If you have read the actual details in the recent headline grabbing horror stories of incidents in dogparks, they almost always are a result from a dog being in the park that should not be or fromuneducated/erroneous decisions made by visiting dog owners. Both of these should not occur ifyour private dog park is consistent in managing and operating the facility for the safety andenjoyment of all. With private dog parks operating as a business, financial success is always aconsideration. So turning away visiting dogs equates to lost revenue, so unless the park isfocused exclusively on maintaining a safe environment for all, a private park that is short-termfinancially driven can pose the same risks that a public park does.The third party oversight ability of park staff to intervene is required to eliminate personalityclashes and biased evaluation of situations and/or dogs behavior. So when the experiencedscreener determines the dog lacks the temperament so he/she can play with others, it is the parkstaffs responsibility to deal with the disappointed dog owner. Same intervention by park staffgoes in the event a visiting dog owner does not abide by park rules or a dog plays too rough orviolations of any other park code of behavior. You can imagine these discussions are difficult;however, by park staff entertaining such discussions it eliminates any personal intervention byvisiting dog owners.
Telling a dog owner that their dog is not allowed or can no longer come to the park untiltroublesome behavior is removed is always difficult. However, it is critical that the staff of theprivate dog park you are intending to visit has the proper screening system, the diligence tocomply and financial ability to effectively turn away the revenue for dogs that do not appear to becapable of socially interacting at such level to keep the park safe for all.As important to the screening is the parks development and maintenance of expertly developedpark rules. To the novice dog owner, many of the park rules appear to be too cumbersome anddetailed. The reality is that each rule of a well-run dog park is well thought through and derivedfrom merit by an expert in dog behavior. Compliance to all of the rules is key to the safeenjoyment of the park by all. For example, the toy aggression of a dog or rough play can withinseconds turn into a dog fight even with the best of mannered & socialized dogs. Withoutsuch detailed rules and the full oversight to insure they are all followed, the private dog park couldturn into mayhem.Dog Park Management of Sizes and BreedsFor the safety of all, we highly recommend separating small dogs from large, excluding entranceto a few breeds, requiring males be neutered unless under strict command and requiring that dogsbe at least four months old to enjoy the park. What we hear the most from small dog owners isthat they want their small dogs to be able to play in the designated big dog area because "they liketo play with big dogs". Although the small dogs may have enjoyed past experiences playing with alarge dog of neighbor or friend, the risk remain of physical injury to the small dogs if they areallowed in the same area as big dogs. It is my opinion each size should have designated areas tocreate safe play for all. Thus, we recommend that when investigating which dog park is right foryou, this should be part of consistent operations.Let me first say I do not believe in stereotyping any particular breed for temperament. However,due to instinctual drive levels, size and bite capacity, there are some breeds that I believe shouldbe prohibited from entry to an off-leash park and some that should have elevated entrance criteria. Pit bulls, not specifically because of temperament but rather from jaw force/releasability should beforbidden from the off-leash dog park. Although we have met some of the sweetest and well-socialized pit bulls, we do not allow them to visit our parks because the risk is so high of severeinjury to another dog if they were to bite.Chow Chows are another breed that unless have a lifetime of scalability or coming in as a youngdog, do we rarely let into the park. Any of the other "working breed" dogs, including terriers, dueto their breed characteristics, prey drive, protection dog status and/or sheer size should go throughelevated entrance criteria. These types of dogs must meet entrance-required temperament, inaddition must demonstrate clear owner command. Upon meeting entrance criteria, they undergofrequent evaluations for continued social ability and owner command. All other dogs must passdog socialization evaluation and demonstrate basic obedience.Many Responsibilities of the Dog OwnerEven with the best of run private dog parks, the dog owners retain a high level of responsibilityupon park entrance while be willing to withstand the occasional park staff directive. They must
carefully watch their dog, abide by all park rules, maintain the obedience skills of the dog andknow their dog well enough to predict their dogs behavior. Knowing your dogs mood, watchingits posture and identifying or correcting any potential troublesome behaviors is critical so all canenjoy the park. Every dog will encounter occasions where they will meet another dog that they donot like or are uncomfortable around.It is the best of private dog parks where entry requires command of your dog so that incidents ofescalated aggression can be avoided when each dog owner carefully watches their dog and cancommand their dogs away from each and every situation. Incidents occur only when the dogowners are not vigilant in watching their dogs or do not understand their dogs behavior and theslightest of uncomfortable encounters prolongs to escalate into a dogfight. Again, each dogowner should understand their dogs postures, expressions and movement to be able todifferentiate in off-leash situations when they are comfortable and when they are not. If the dogowner does not intuitively understand their dog, we recommend seeking the assistance of aprofessional dog trainer.Safely Socializing Dogs Early Benefits EveryoneWe believe that all dogs, when in receipt of proper health vaccination should be socialized in asafe environment to improve their ability throughout their life of all of the benefits an off-leash parkcan provide. Any puppy, following final adult vaccination booster should be introduced socially toother dogs, people, children and other distractions and a well-managed private dog park createsthe perfect place. Puppies visiting a safe off-leash park will easily learn good behavior in the dogsocial structure and provide the dog owner the ability to enhance obedience training withdistractions. Just as the benefits of teaching good manners to a dog early in their life areimmense, so are the risks that behavior issues or dog aggression will occur in the event the earlyexperiences are traumatic.With puppies, we strongly encourage you thorough investigation on the park you are consideringto take them to best create the opportunity for good experiences. We recommend you confirmthat the park is well maintained, strictly managed and rules enforced. Taking the puppy to aprivate off-leash dog park will provide your dog a life-long of comfort around other dogs, peopleand children. However; even with the best of private dog parks, there are other distractions thatyou should have your puppy comfortable with, which is why we also recommend taking a puppy(when fully vaccinated) to busy shopping malls with diverse people and sounds, nature walks withchildren & bicycles and on-leash dog walking trails to learn on-leash manners.Picking the Private Dog Park for YouWhile private dog parks are gaining in popularity because they may be the only choice for safeand enjoyable off-leash fun, enter with caution. If a dog park is "Private", it is operated as abusiness entity, but this does not guarantee it is safe for you and your dog. It is ourrecommendation that with any place you intend to take your dog, you first tour the facility. Inspectthe fence and the grounds, as well as talk with some of the dog owners visiting to learn about theirsafety record and staffing. After touring, talk with the park staff about what is required to visit. Ifyou do not have to show paperwork confirming vaccinations or they do not meet your dog anddetermine social ability with other dogs, we would recommend that you know there may be risks.As with any place that you take your dog, insure you have great command of your dog and you
are comfortable with the park layout and your dogs social skills to lessen the chances of apossible incident with another dog.Terri Malueg-Ray, President & Founder of many industry leading, innovative companies who is aninternational pet industry expert.Terri L.
