Why do we have a dog park?
A dog park establishes a specific and secure area for people to let their dogs run legally off-leash, giving the dogs enjoyable and healthful exercise.
Nearly half of the dogs received at the Boone County Animal Shelter are surrendered by their owners and one of the leading reasons is behavioral problems. Today there are more families where both partners work, more single parent families and more small yard (or no yard) residences. As a result, many dogs fail to receive the physical exercise they need because of time restrictions and space limitations.
Unreleased, pent-up canine energy is the number one ingredient in the recipe for dog behavior problems. Loneliness is the second ingredient.
