Give your dog a run at a dog park in Bergen County. It’s good for you and your pet.
Dogs need exercise. Without adequate exercise, dogs become frustrated and act out behaviorally in ways no owner appreciates. A dog is a 10-15 year commitment and part of dog care is exercise. As a result dog parks are often the best answer for many owners.
There are several Bergen County dog parks. If you’re a dog park person you also know that it’s fun. You get to socialize with the other owners while Fido is playing.
Moving can be tough on dogs. Not only is your pup adjusting to a new environment, he’s not getting enough exercise while you’re in the middle of unpacking boxes. Finding time to meet your neighbors isn’t easy either with all you have to do. You can solve both problems by taking your dog to a local dog park.
Dog parks aren’t for everyone but if you and your dog enjoy going to them, the local dog park will help Fido run off some steam and socialize with other dogs. You’ll also get to meet many local residents and maybe book a play date or two for your pet.
There are 6 dog parks maintained by the Bergen County Parks Department. If you have a small dog Wood Dale Park in Woodcliff Lake lacks a separate area for small dogs. This park is being renovated so that might change.
You need to bring water for your pet because most parks don’t supply this. You should know that all parks are closed at sun down.
