Stockton is a large city with parks, a zoo, and museums to enjoy. If you have a dog in the city, there are also a few dog parks great for exercising your pup. In Stockton and other California cities, dog parks are the best places to go so your dog can have a safe area to play off-leash. Off-leash areas are also perfect places for your dog to meet new friends.

Your dog should be well trained and fully vaccinated with current shots before going to any dog park. Along with that, you should follow the rules of the dog park you visit, which are posted outside of the off-leash area. Here are a few rules common in dog parks that you should follow when visiting;

  • Dogs must be supervised by the owner

  • Food and alcohol are banned in the dog park 
  • Pick up after your dog 
  • No children in the dog park 
  • All dogs should be licensed and fully vaccinated 
  • No smoking in the dog park 

Stockton dog parks may have different rules. It is always best to check the rules of the dog park you are visiting before entering. Let’s take a look at the 3 best dog parks in Stockton.
