10 Reasons to Support a Dog Park in Cedar City

We have been working hard to get a dog park in Cedar City for many reasons.  Here are just a few.

Reasons to support our dog park:
  • Dogs that play hard are less destructive and calmer at home.
  • There are numerous health benefits for both dogs and their owners for instance exercise and socialization.
  • Dog parks are not just for dogs, they are a great place for owners to meet with other people who share their love of dogs.
  • Many disabled and senior citizens are not physically able to exercise their dogs, and having a dog park where dogs can play with others and run off their energy would be a great benefit to them.
  • We need a place where we can help educate dog owners where they can meet to learn from the professionals and other knowledgable dog owners.
  • It could help in our economic development to host large dog related events in our city
  • It would make it easier for our city to enforce leash laws and registration
  • It makes for a better community. It promotes health and safety because well exercised and socialized dogs are less likely to be a nuisance.
  • In working closely with our local rescues and shelters, it is my belief that there would be less dog surrenders if people had additional opportunities to bond with their dogs.
  • Our local homeless shelter dogs could have a place to run and socialize on a doggy field trip(Chris Johnson, Enoch Animal Control's statement) and show off their attributes for potential forever homes.
****As a Rescue Volunteer for over 25 years, I know that many dogs cannot display their true nature in a kennel situation.
