The Spring Valley Dog Park is an off-leash dog park in Spring Valley, Nevada. The dog park is a portion of the Spring Valley Community Park which has been reconditioned for use as an area for exercising dogs off-leash. This town's dog park might be close to Las Vegas, but pups don't need to gamble on having a good time here, it's guaranteed.
To get to the Spring Valley Dog Park from the parking lot is just a short walk along the paved pathways of the main park during which a dog must be on its leash. Getting caught with a dog off-leash in a public park anywhere in Clark County can cost a pet owner a hefty $250.
This dog park in Spring Valley has three very spacious compounds which have been enclosed with ten-foot-high fencing. Nothing is getting in or out of these off-leash areas unless it goes through one of the staging gates. Not only do the toy breeds have an individual run all to themselves, but there's also one for medium-sized pups and one for the larger ones who need that extra bit of space.
All three areas are surfaced with a combination of tufty grass which has seen better days and sand which could well have been brought in by the trailer load from the Nevada desert. The sand can get well heated when the sun's blazing, and there's practically no shade for the pups though owners do have a couple of shelters to sit under.
Good pet parents never mind sharing the pavilions with their pups when they need to get out of the sun. The Clark County parks authorities encourage pet parents to take their fur child to socialization classes before letting them loose in an off-leash dog park. The off-leash areas are monitored by the parks department and any pet parent without poop bags and found to be not removing their pet's feces run the risk of exclusion from the facility and a citation.
