The Chestertown Dog Park is a great off-leash dog park in Chestertown, Maryland. This dog park is just outside the town, about a one-mile drive and is part of the Bailey Park Complex. There is a parking lot for users of the facility which is located down the second driveway exit off Schauber Road.
All dogs need to be walked on their leashes the remaining fifty yards to the designated off-leash area. This dog park in Chestertown covers almost three acres of ground and caters for both large and small pups by assigning them their individual compounds to cavort in.
The Chestertown Dog Park is also fully fenced, so no pooch is going to do a runner and head back to town under their own steam. While the dog park doesn't boast a lot of amenities like agility equipment or tunnels, the dogs enjoy letting their fur down in the open fields and having a good leg stretch.
There are a couple of fire hydrants for the machos among them to scent mark and for the canine femme fatales to sniff at. To take a pup to this dog park in Chestertown, pet parents need to have passed their sixteenth birthday. Anyone under that age, but only from ten upwards, needs to be accompanied by an adult.
Under tens have to stay home with their grandparents or siblings as they are not allowed in the off-leash areas. Ten to sixteen-year-olds need to understand they are there to watch their fur sibling play, not to join in with the chase. What they are allowed to chase, the same as all pet parents and prospective pet parents is puppy poop at the Chestertown Dog Park.
Good dog park habits can never start too young. So long as poop mitts and poop bags are used correctly, even the youngest pet parent is more than capable of fulfilling the poop scooping rules. Everyone learns by example, and that includes correct hand-washing methods when a pet parent arrives home too.
