The Jacobs Dog Park is one of several off-leash areas in the dog-friendly city of Tucson, Arizona. Even though vehicles can be parked right by the entrance, owners are requested to take notice of the parking lot signage and keep their dogs leashed until inside.
Dog owners who enjoy a cigarette when exercising their dogs should note that this dog park has been incorporated in the Tucson no smoking pilot program. Therefore, smoking is banned in this off-leash park. The Jacobs Dog Park is not overly large, but still provides enough ground space for a dog to get some decent exercise.
The off-leash area also has plenty of paved pathways so owners can stretch their legs too. If walking around is off the agenda, there's benches to sit on and some picnic tables although owners are expected to keep a watchful eye on their dogs at all times.
Here in the Jacobs Dog Park, the dog's can play on surfaces of natural grass, which is a bit patchy and worn in places, and gravelly dirt. The palm trees inside the perimeter fence, as well as looking attractive, serve the purpose of offering somewhere for a dog to practice the art of scent marking.
All sizes of dogs are exercised together in this off-leash dog park in Tucson as it doesn't have a particular area fenced off for small breeds. All dogs, whether large or small, are expected to display the correct social behavior while using the off-leash facility. Aggressive or anti-social behavior, by either dogs or handlers, is not tolerated.
Don't forget, all dogs going into the off-leash area should be wearing their license, vaccination and identity tags. Poop bags are provided and are there to be used. Poop should be scooped immediately to help prevent the spread of infectious diseases and deposited in the on-site trash containers. Complying with the scoop regulations helps keep the dog park a healthy and happy place for all pups to play in.
