Shore Dogs Park is open from
dawn till dusk.
There is a 3 dog per handler
limit. Shore dogs' management believes that
no person can effectively control and supervise more than
three dogs. For that reason, we strictly enforce
a three-dog limit in the park.
Under NO circumstances may you
bring a sick dog into the park - one that has
been diagnosed with a contagious disease, or that shows
signs of illness (e.g., severe runny nose/eyes, diarrhea,
Female dogs in heat or pre-heat,
are NOT allowed in the park! Females in heat
can inadvertently cause dogfights.
Dogs that show pronounced aggression
are NOT allowed in the park! Dominant aggressive
dogs should NOT play in parks with other dogs. Keeping
them on a leash increases the aggression - and letting
them off leash eliminates your control.
Dogs that show fear aggression
(attacking other dogs because they mistakenly
believe the other dog will attack them) should
not be forced to play in parks with unfamiliar dogs.
It will increase the fear and aggression.
Some dogs are not suited for dog park playing, or
need some work before introducing them to a group.
Excessive barking may disturb the park's neighbors and
may also incite aggression in other dogs. Quiet your dog
if he/she is barking. You can do that by redirecting the
dog's attention to something else, like playing with you,
or by moving to a different area of the park. If the dog
will not be quiet, you must remove him or her from the
Do not keep your dog on a leash
inside the park. The dog park is an "off leash"
area. If you need to keep your dog on leash, you should,
for your dog's own safety and comfort, not bring him or
her into the park. Being kept on leash with other dogs
that are not on-leash triggers aggression and creates
tension and stress between the dogs. It will also put
your dog at a tremendous disadvantage if something goes
Choke chains, prong collars,
and head collars (Halti, Gentle Leader, etc.) should be
removed before you let your dog loose in the park.
Other dogs can get their teeth caught in the collar when
playing and panic when stuck, causing injury to themselves
and the dog wearing the collar. A prong or pinch collar
may also get caught up on a fence and will be painful
if pushed into the dog's neck during play, potentially
causing a fight because of a perceived "signal of threat".
Do not bring food of any kind
into the park. Food is a HUGE trigger for fights
between dogs - especially very tasty food like a chicken
Under NO circumstances are you
allowed to leave your dog unsupervised in the park!
If you leave, take your dog with you!
Do not leave the park gates open, and watch carefully
for dogs on the other side when you are entering or leaving,
so that they do not escape.
This park is a designated "Dog
Park". It is not intended as a children's playground.
Dogs in the park can and will often assume "natural
canine behavior" (run wildly while at play, etc.), which
may not be a safe environment for small children. Shore
Dogs Dog Club recommends that you don't bring small children
into the park. Unaccompanied children are not allowed
in the park -- you bring children at your own risk.
Clean up after your dog.
It's very unpleasant - not mention unhealthy - for dogs
to play in a field liberally dotted with droppings. The
park has pooper-scoopers, plastic bags and covered buckets
to deposit the poop. If you notice that a dog has pooped
and the owner seems unaware of it, point it out to them.
