Confession: One time I brought food to a dog park.
Don’t judge! I didn’t think about how food can make dogs crazy. Now that my dog is crazy I know better.
Lucy loves to play with other dogs. But somehow the dog park became a work place for her. They say that herding dogs like to have jobs to do. And Lucy’s favorite job is fetch. When we go into the dog park she is laser focused on us and the ball. (I know - bringing a ball to a dog park is questionable as well).
As a deaf dog owner, the dog park is also a safe/enclosed place for off leash exercise.
