The theme of the event was "Dachtoberfest". Guests arrived in costume and enjoyed refreshments and socialization for both canines and humans. Over 20 Dachshunds, accompanied by their owners, gathered in our large outdoor play yard on a beautiful fall day to run off some energy and meet new friends.

Dog Park Safety

Dog Park Safety

Dog parks are great places for dogs to play and socialize with other dogs. Unfortunately, the fun can sometimes turn violent. Without proper knowledge, a dog and its handler are both subject to injury.

Robin Bennett, an author and trainer with All About Dogs in Woodbridge, Va., believes that in order for dog parks to be safe, dogs need to be properly supervised. This means that dog owners must know what to watch for if problems arise between the dogs.

“Early warning signs indicating that a dog is stressed include lip licking, yawning, half moon eyes, stiffening and avoidance,” Bennett said. “These signals all happen before things get too far out of hand.”
