silhouettestable Posted August 7, 2007 Report Share Posted August 7, 2007 I keep reading about the troubles people keep having at dog parks and I have to wonder, isn't there some better alternative? I'm one of the lucky people who have acres at home for my dogs to run and play on and I can't imagine not having that, so I can certainly see the draw of going to a dog park if your only alternative is leash walking. But, with all the problems due to idiot owners and/or agressive dogs it really sounds like it ruins the whole experience. That brought me around to wondering, would anyone who has lots of space be interested in hosting play date meet-ups? I've often invited friends with dogs to come over and let them run and play in my fields, anyone else do something similar? It could be a great way to get the dogs exercised and socialized, and if it's on private property, hosted by private individuals then there shouldn't be the idiots to deal with, and if there are any problems the owners can be asked to leave. Of course doing it this way wouldn't be accessible all day long like the parks, but it might be a more enjoyable time. Just a thought.
