Things to keep in mind when visiting dog parks in Azle:

Scoop the Poop

Dog waste left in the parks is no bueno. It can also carry parasites which could hurt other dogs. 

Clean up after your dog and properly dispose of their waste to avoid any issues. 

Aggressive Dogs at the Park

If your pet has behavioral and aggression issues around other dogs or other people, seek assistance from a professional dog trainer before exploring the off-leash dog park. The last thing an owner wants is to be on the hook for an unwarranted bite coming from your pet. 

Get Rabies-Vaccinated

Dogs can transmit rabies through biting. A bite from a dog with rabies can be incredibly dangerous. Having your dog vaccinated for rabies prevents the transmission of the deadly virus to dogs and humans. 

Needing a rabies vaccine in Azle You can find a list of our vaccination station schedule here.

Leave Dogs in Heat at Home

Male dogs can smell pheromones produced by a female dog in heat from miles away. Male dogs -- especially in groups -- can fight over female dogs that are in heat leading to nasty conflicts at the dog park. 

In addition, you do not want your canine to get pregnant from a stranger dog at the dog park. Love is love but we always like to prioritize family planning if at all possible. 

It's best to neuter and spay your pets to reduce the risks of pregnancy and other health complications

Leave the Puppies at Home

Your puppy’s immune system is not yet fully developed, and they could collect infectious diseases from the dog park, like the ‘puppy killer,’ parvovirus

Vets recommend taking puppies to the park only after they’ve had their first round of shots, usually around 16 weeks.

Be Careful with Kids 

Dog parks are for dogs to run, play, burn off excess energy, and just be dogs. An overly energetic and out of control dog may knock down and injure your child or other children at the park. 

While your kid may be good with pets at home, new dogs may misinterpret your kid’s enthusiasm and react with aggression. It’s important to keep your kids close and be very careful around new dogs. 

Keep Your Leash in Hand

Keep your dog on a leash until you enter the off-leash area.

Don’t Bring Food to the Park

Most dog parks prohibit food inside the off-leash area. Even if the rules aren’t explicit, it’s wise to keep food away from the dogs. 

Dogs may become excited at the smell of human food and gang up on each other to fight over the helpings. Bringing food to a dog park can lead to conflict, fighting, and biting, and it’s best, if possible, to avoid.

Ask for Permission Before Interacting

No matter how friendly a dog seems to be, always get the okay from the pet owner before petting the animal. A dog owner will warn you if their dog is aggressive or does not like to be touched by strangers. 

Also, if you’d like your pet to play and be friends with another dog at the park, make sure it’s ok with the owner. Some dog owners are not comfortable with bigger dogs playing with their dogs and vice-versa. It’s always a good idea to ask first.
