Dog parks are great places for any dog to get out their energy and meet new friends. Dog parks are also among the only places where you can safely let your pet get some time off its leash and explore new areas.

If you plan on visiting any dog park, your dog should be fully vaccinated and also properly licensed. Having a well-trained dog is also important, ensuring they are able to comfortably play around others. Each dog park you visit has its rules, which are usually posted right outside the off-leash area. Some common rules found in dog parks include:

  • No food and alcohol 
  • Smoking is not permitted 
  • Aggressive dogs should be removed from the park
  • No children in the dog park
  • All dogs should be vaccinated
  • Owners are responsible for the dogs they bring 
  • Sick or in-heat dogs are prohibited from the park

Any dog would love a day to get off its leash and meet new furry friends. Let’s take a look at the 3 best dog parks in Lincoln, California, and what you can expect when visiting them.
