For some reason, I hadn’t noticed the new dog-off-lead park in Tuggers – probably because it isn’t that noticeable unless you are looking for it.
Anyway, a neighbor of ours told me about it the other day and we (myself and doggies) ventured forth to see what the fuss was about. It was actually pretty great; nine foot fences, secure entry and exit double gates, lots of open spaces for the dogs to roam/chase/frolic, paths for the humans and plenty of seats in sunny spots.
We had a fab time, met lots of nice folks, lots of nice dogs and everyone seemed to be quite well behaved (except my whippet, who felt the need to piddle on the dog drinking fountain – which inspired all of the others dogs to also piddle on the said fountain).
Thanks to TAMs for providing this terrific spot.
My only suggestion – how about installing a couple of poo-bag dispensers (for the humans who occasionally forget) as they do at other dog parks? And the addition of lights would be a real asset on winter evenings.
If you haven’t been yet, it is on Mortimer Lewis drive, just off Drakeford (across the lake from the library); look out for the lady with the incessantly piddling whippet.
