Very good information for prospective home buyers. We sure could use some dog parks in our area.

Have an outstanding month and be sure to have your camera in hand to capture the special moments.

Hi David,

We have several dog parks in our area and the community loves to take their dogs there...especially the big dogs as they need more room to run but be safe. Thanks for sharing and I really enjoyed your post and your pictures.

Hi David,

We have several dog parks in our area and I have always wanted to take our Bandit to one but haven't yet.  He loves other dogs and loves to run and play so I think it would be great.

Dog parks are not just for the pooch, I meet so many of my neighbors and new friends there as well.
