Raleigh dog parks Raleigh Parks Dog Park Raleigh

Raleigh Parks and Recreation facilities have some super great parks for both humans and dogs. In Raleigh there are three off-leash dog parks in which dogs are able to run and play without the restriction of a leash.

The parks have nice mulched areas and romping room for playing and running. There's usually an area that is covered where owners can sit and visit while the dogs have fun.

The parks have separate areas for large and small dogs. The "small dog" area, in some parks, also means older dogs, dogs that get upset around other more frisky dogs, or dogs that play best with smaller dogs and puppies.

These Raleigh Dog Parks have rules and regulations that enable the dogs and their owners to get some exercise and socialization in clean, safe areas.

The rules are basic and make common sense. Most of the dog owners in Raleigh are well respectful of these rules. Basically the rules are these:

• Your dogs must have had current rabies shots
• Puppies younger than 4 months old are not allowed in the park
• Dogs in heat, and sick dogs are not allowed in the park
• Don't let your dogs dig holes and if they do - you must fill them up
• No dog food or dog chews
• No choke, prong, pinch, and spike collars
• You have to stay inside the fenced area with your dog
• You can't bring more than 3 dogs per person
• Don't litter or climb on the fences
• Watch your kids
• Pick up your dog's poop

Raleigh dog parks are definitely a place to bring you dogs to have a blast - so remember these are parks for dogs so don't bring your cats, polar bears, badgers or birds.
