Every breed needs to get exercise, but some, such as border collies or labradors, need multiple hours of activity a day. Not everyone has a large space for their dog to run their heart out. Luckily, dog parks are there to provide a safe place for the local dogs nearby to play. If in Arizona then you are in luck, as this article will cover the 4 best dog parks in Chandler and what they offer for your pup.

Before visiting any dog park, it is important your pooch is well-trained and comfortable around other people and dogs. Each dog park has its own rules that should be followed, and if you need to know them, they can usually be found right outside the off-leash park entrance.

  • All owners must pick up after their own dog
  • Dogs must be under voice control at all times
  • No sick or in-heat dogs
  • No smoking or alcoholic beverages
  • No eating 
  • Aggressive dogs should be removed immediately  

Checking the rules at the different dog parks you visit is important, as each area has its own that should be followed.
