Dogs Run Free In Denver Dog Parks
Dogs were never meant to be cooped up all day, trapped in urban areas, confined to walks on leashes.
Dogs of all sizes, breeds, and personalities were built to run, born to socialize with other dogs, destined to jump and chase and play, and do all of the things that dogs love to do.
But what’s an owner to do, when Denver has a strict leash law that’s strictly enforced? Go to a dog park in Denver or in the Denver metro area, where dogs can be dogs, and owners can rest easy knowing their dogs are safe and happy.
Denver Parks and Recreation has set up six dog parks in Denver: Stapleton Dog Park, Kennedy Dog Park, Fuller Dog Park, Berkeley Dog Park, Barnum Dog Park, and Green Valley Ranch Dog Park. So, whether you live in northeast Denver or southeast Denver, northwest Denver or southwest Denver, central Denver or the surrounding suburbs, you should be able to find a dog park near you.
Then give a whistle or shout, put the pooch in the car, and get ready to make your dog the happiest dog on earth!
