Meet Up with Old Friends at the Beach!
Although it’s sad to say goodbye to Summer, the good news is dogs will be welcome on the beaches starting September 15th. Once the Gloucester Dog Park is completed, our canine companions will be able to romp "unleashed" year round!
Back to School
My dog/s has never been in a dog park before. How can I expect them to react? Reactions vary depending on a dog’s nature, their living environment, and age. For dogs that are house-bound or who live in small fenced-in back yards, entering a large area like a dog park and being off-leash can be stressful even with no other dogs. They need time to adjust to the new-found freedom.
1. Make your inaugural visit to the dog park a short one
2. Arrive at a time when there are not very many dogs
3. Walk your dog around the park on the outside of the fence
4. Remove your leash once you enter the first gate
Rosie Lourenco, of the Barking Lot, gave a special treat to some lucky canines at our Visitor’s Center booth recently – free nail clipping. Thank You Rosie!
Pack the Pup!
The number of people who travel with their dogs is growing, and so too are the options for pets on the road — from "ruffing it" at camp-grounds to enjoying fabulous four-star hotels. There’s never been a better time to pack your pet and go.
Cape Ann is dog-friendly, too. Check out the "pet-friendly" accomodations on Cape Ann the next time you, your family members or friends need a place to vacation with your canine companion.http://www.capeannvacations.com/accommodations.cfm
