The Rockaway Freeway Dog Park is a big off-leash area for exercising dogs in the city of New York. For any canine suffering from being too cooped up in an urban environment, this is the place to take them. There is even parking for vehicles close by on the roadside which is super convenient for owners arriving by car.
All pup owners should remember that off-leash time for their dog doesn't start until they're inside the designated zone. This dog park in New York is great for both small breeds and large breeds. There's no getting under each other's paws here. The big dogs have a huge field all to themselves, and so do the miniature pups.
Both of the off-leash enclosures are secure, so there are no worries of any pup escaping through the fencing. There are also trees and shrubbery around the border which makes the dog park look as if it were in the countryside rather than in the city. Leashing and unleashing is a safe process as there are gated staging areas.
The lucky pups getting exercised in this off-leash area also have lots of agility equipment to use too. Even though dogs have a lot of space to run around in at this dog park, they're still expected to be on their best behavior. Rough and tumble is permissible, but not if it gets out of hand. Owners need to be vigilant of what their dog is doing and intervene promptly if they suspect their pup is about to misbehave.
Prevention is better than cure as dogfights are difficult and stressful to break up. Owners should also be on the ball when it comes to poop scooping too. In the Rockaway Freeway Dog Park, picking up a pup's poop could involve a long walk from the poop location to the trash bin, which is no excuse for leaving it laying on the grass.
