The Gloucester dog park

Whenever I travel, I like to visit dog parks, independent pet stores and other locations to see what works and to pick up on new ideas.

Today, I was able to visit the Gloucester dog park.  In this case, it was quite by accident – the dog park happens to be located across the road from the Welcome Center.

I particularly liked to see that prong, choke and spiked collars are specifically prohibited and that dog owners are encouraged to make donations to the upkeep of the park.

The double gated entries to both the large and small dog areas were spacious and easy to manage.

Well done to the Town of Gloucester (Massachusetts)!
