The 6 People You See at Every Dog Park — powered by Cracked.com

Local government has realised that off leash dog parks are both very popular and rather cheap.

Therefore we will have quite a lot of them.

Shane Rattenbury has announced two more for O’Connor and Belconnen:

North Canberra dogs and their owners are set to benefit from two new off-leash dog parks in Belconnen and O’Connor, announced Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, Shane Rattenbury.

“A new park for O’Connor and an upgrade of the existing Belconnen off-leash dog park will provide dog owners with more safe places to exercise and socialise their dogs,” said Mr Rattenbury .

I would appreciate a big/small dog separation at a dog park. I am hesitant to go to the dog park anymore after a few encounters we’ve had with small dogs displaying fear aggression when approached by my big dogs.

Try Casey Dog park at Springbank Rise. We have taken our 5month old German Shepherd Dog out there many times and she loves it. We were at first taking her into the small dog/puppy side but was on the receiving end of small dog agression like yourself, she now prefers the big dog area and the dogs in there tend to be calmer.

Most dog parks I’ve been to do have a separate small dog area? Though I think Belco doesn’t. Yet. But I think the rule is that big dogs are not allowed in the small dog area but small dogs can be in the ‘general’ area.

Actually… he’s got a point about the social chatter nuggets that people at the dog park have in thier conversational repitoire.
