The Rancho San Jose Dog Park is an off-leash dog park in Claremont, California. The dog park is an integral part of the city's Rancho San Jose Park which has sports fields, picnic spots which are accessible for the mobility challenged and several paved walkways.
The users of the off-leash area are welcome to park their vehicles in the main park's lot. This dog park in Claremont is tucked away in a shady but somewhat tight on space corner of Rancho San Jose Park. Large dogs might find this shared size off-leash area just too small for them to stretch their legs in.
The enclosure is fenced, but with metal railings which many small breeds, like Yorkshire Terriers and Chihuahuas, can easily slip through. Small dog owners will need to keep an eagle eye on their pups here to stop them escaping and heading for the children's playground next door.
The slides there are much more exciting than the two bits of pint-sized agility equipment in the off-leash run. Pet parents should also be aware that although the dog park is open until ten in the evening, there is no lighting which makes the corner very dark.
The one thing this dog park does have in its favor is that it is super clean and well-maintained. The pet parents who use this kerchief- sized off-leash area are particularly fastidious about cleaning up after their pups. Just because this is a diminutive dog park doesn't mean it doesn't have rules.
It does and just as many as a dog park twenty times its size. Pet parents shouldn't leave a pup alone behind bars; it probably won't be there when they get back. Be vigilant about the way dogs are playing in case it starts to get too rough. Scoop all poop to make sure this scrap of Claremont Dog Park stays just as pristine as it's always been.
