If a dog could design the ideal dog park, then it would probably look something like the Heritage Dog Park in Olathe, Kansas. For those who have not visited it yet, it is part of the Heritage Park which is a fantastic public park and provides residents of Olathe with recreational facilities such as golf courses, fishing lakes, and football fields as well as a place to re-connect with nature.
This dog park in Olathe encompasses 30 acres of paradisical green fields, from a dog's point of view, and a swimming pond. It is a haven for pups as it has been fully fenced in, so there is no chance of them escaping onto any dangerous roads.
That is not to say owners do not need to keep an eye on their dog at the Heritage Dog Park. In fact, they do, and also need to have them trained to voice commands. This dog park is a big space to run amok in, so some canine control is essential.
Even doggy heaven has rules, and at the Heritage Dog Park, there's a set of necessary regulations all users of the off-leash area are asked to abide by, and it goes without saying, owners and dogs enter the park at their own risk.
Although good behavior is expected from all pups playing in the park, personalities can clash on occasion. When that happens, dogs which are socially misbehaving just have to be shown the gate and get taken home. Angry, nasty, and naughty dogs just don't get to stay in the off-leash area.
Every dog who wants to have a run around in the dog park must be up to date on their shots. The tags to prove they are should be worn on their collars along with the one for their license. While the dogs get to have some fun, the owners get to follow up with the dirty work.
Yes, poop scooping is obligatory even when a dog poops at the far end of the field. There is no escaping responsibility here, since there are bags and dumpster provided for just that. And there is no excuse under the sun for not complying with the rules.
