The Corpus Christi Dog Park is an off-leash dog park in the City of Corpus Christi, Texas. This dog park is part of the Water's Edge Park, which has been conditioned as an off-leash area for exercising dogs. While walking through the park from the vehicle lot to the designated off-leash area, dogs need to be kept on their leashes. This dog park in Corpus Christi has quite a fresh and modern design.
The two compounds, for both large and small dogs, have been enclosed with decorative metal railings and bordered with palm trees. Mostly surfaced with pea gravel, there are also a couple of circular areas covered with astroturf. This is a shiny, new dog park and to date, there are no comfort amenities such as benches for owners or water fountains for the dogs.
There no poop bags either so owners need to go ready equipped with bags and mitts to pick up after their pup. Forgetting to take poop bags to the park is the pet owner's problem. It doesn't mean poop deposits can be ignored. Borrow some from another pet owner and make sure the scooping duty is done. This dog park in Corpus Christi may be new, but it follows all the old and well-established rules which work so well in other dog parks.
Owners are the ones who are responsible for their pup's safety while in the off-leash areas. Leaving them unattended is a complete no go. Rough play between canines has its limits, and when a pup is out of order, their owner needs to intervene with the best correction methods to make sure they socialize properly.
There is only one leader of the pack in every household, but in a dog park, pups don't need to prove their status. Being friendly to the other dogs there is much more important. This can sometimes take a while if pups are not accustomed to a dog park environment, but patience and perseverance with training techniques usually win the day.
