The Chihuahuas, Dachshunds and Jack Russell terriers of the world will always have a space at the park, mainly because of their small size. But not every park goer is fond of compact canines. Large breeds are becoming more popular with dog owners year after year, which means you’ll need to be able to accommodate them just as well as their Napoleonic counterparts.
With that said, here are a few essential tips towards creating an ideal pet-friendly area for the large dogs, too.
Good Fences, Good Neighbors
Creating spaces that allow both small and large dogs to feel more comfortable during their visits. Separate, one-off spaces, complete with size-appropriate DOGIPOT® pet products, help ease nervous dogs into the process of meeting newer, larger ones.
Proper Waste Management
When it comes to pet waste, the bigger they are, well…you get the rest. This means you should provide ample opportunities for large dog owners to properly clean up after their pets. Start by investing in DOGIPOT® Pet Stations and SMART Litter Pick Up Bags™ that can be strategically placed throughout the park at locations like high-traffic entrances/exits or near water fountains.
Sizeable Exercise Equipment
Big dogs need just as much exercise as some smaller breeds, so it only makes sense to include a few DOGIPARK® products, like the Arched Stepping Bones or 3-Level Dog Shaped Jump Hoop, which come in sizes that can accommodate many large breeds, that get dogs running, jumping, and playing their way to better health.
Go Big or Go Home
