Dog Parks in the U.S.

Find dog parks and dog off-leash areas in the U.S.

Dog parks can be a great place for dogs to exercise off-leash and socialize with other dogs. However, unruly dogs and owners who don't supervise their pets can cause problems at the dog park. Please remember to abide by the rules of the dog park and always practice proper dog park etiquette.

Tips For Keeping Your Dog Safe at the Dog Park

  • Know each dog park's rules, and follow them.

    Keep your dog leashed until you're inside the park's fenced area.

  • Never leave your dog unattended, even in an off-leash dog park, and maintain voice control over your dog at all times.

  • Know your dog's play style and what the warning signs are that your dog may be getting over-stimulated and may be in danger of crossing the line into aggression. Respond promptly to aggressive behavior. Deciding what constitutes aggressive behavior is sometimes a matter of judgment. It's important to know your dog and to know what is normal and safe for your dog.

  • Don't bring toys or treats that dogs could fight over to the dog park.

  • If you have to break up a dog fight: grab the dogs from the BACK-grab either the tail or the hind legs. If a dog is involved in a fight, you should not grab the collar or put your hands anywhere near the dog's head. A dog that is fighting is in a state of frenzy and is not aware of what it is doing. It may reflexively lash out and bite at anything that comes near its head. The safest approach is to grab the dog's tail. If the dog has no tail, grab the hind legs. Both owners should grab their dogs and pull them away from each other at the same time. Then each dog should be leashed and IMMEDIATELY removed from the park.

  • Keep your dog's vaccinations, especially rabies, up-to-date.

  • Never bring a female dog in heat to a dog park.

  • Bring water for your dog -- not all dog parks have a water source.
