Using  best-practice leash-free dog park tips can ensure that these valuable outdoor areas remain in use for other pets and pet families.  Invest in your dog and remember to be courteous of other breeds and families using the dog park as well.

1. Make sure your dog stays in range of your voice, and that they have good voice recall and will listen to you.

2. Even if you are in an off-leash area, be sure to have a leash available as back-up.  Be prepared!

3. Bring those pooper scoopers, and bags...clean up after your pet poops, every time.  No exceptions!  Your apartment community will likely have posted guidelines about this important role of dog ownership.

4. Young puppies might need to wait before visiting off-leash parks...however even older dogs should have updated shots before visitng a dog park.

5. If you have an aggressive breed, don't use a leash-free dog park.  If you have questions, ask your apartment community's leasing professional.
