Dog parks can be wonderful for pets and their owners

I do not live in Medina but wanted to share an experience we had on a recent vacation in Maine. We were looking for a place to stop, have a snack and walk our dog.

We came across a dog park and stopped. It was wonderful. It was large and the dogs ran free. They were all well behaved and all owners cleaned up after their animal. It was expected and honored.

In contrast, we stopped on the interstate with a small pet area. It was deplorable. It was very small, the gate didn’t close (so pets had to stay on leash) and the garbage had not been picked up in weeks.

If you’re going to do it, do it right.
