This neighborhood is home to the Brookdale Dog Park and is located about 17 miles west of Ridgefield, NJ. This is a relatively new dog park, and it is very spacious. This park has it all: It is an off-leash, fenced-in park that has running water and provides waste baskets. There is agility equipment for more adventurous dogs to play on. There are different areas covered in gravel, grass, or mulch. If you would like to get some exercise with your pooch, there are paved trails to walk on. Just keep in mind that the pavement gets hot and could hurt your pooch’s paws.
This neighborhood is home to the Sirius Dog Run, which is about 12 miles from Ridgefield, NJ. This is a great place to bond with your pooch and escape the “city” atmosphere. Your pup will enjoy splashing in the pool and drinking out of the water fountain. There are benches for owners to sit on, and trees provide shade, so you can cool off if you get too hot. Keep in mind that it is paved with asphalt, which, on a hot day, could hurt your canine friend’s paws. You will also need to bring your own waste bags, as those are not provided.

There are doggy water fountains all through the park, and there are other dogs for your fur baby to meet.

I have worked with animals for the past 5 years. I have worked with an array of taxa including various species of primates, birds, reptiles, fish, and mammals. I specialize in marine mammal training, specifically sea lions. I have grown up with dogs all my life and I am very comfortable working with any breed.
