Exercise and socialization are two key ingredients to making a dog healthy and happy. A dog park is a great place to make this happen!
SVACA recommends that all dogs be enrolled in a basic training and socialization course before being allowed to play in a dog park. If your dog has aggression issues to people or other dogs, then a dog park is not a place for him to play. Please consult with a local humane dog trainer if you are having problems; visit the Humane Society Silicon Valley to learn more about humane training and how to select a trainer.
