The owner has muzzled his dog Blue and he is more under control now. Don't allow other dogs to spoil your day at the dog park, bring your dog and allow him to enjoy it. Blue is very seldom there any more, as his owner has a very heavy work load. If you sit with a group of people who are there, they will also help and watch out for your dog.

Puppy Tails is one of the best dog parks on the west coast of Florida. There’s plenty of seating and enormous amount of shade to keep you cool during the hot days of summer. The park is well kept with bulletin boards along with bags to clean-up after you dog. I’ve been going there since 2002 and have always enjoyed the social gathering as well as watching dogs play. I do have a request and it’s to all the good people who use the Dog Park. It would be appreciated if all dog owners would watch their dog and pick up after them. Hope to see you there, and have a great day!

Problem dog named Blue at GT Bray

What can be done about a problem dog named Blue at the park? I have made several phone calls and keep getting the run around.

my puppy

Sounds great, but does my puppy have to be a certain age? He is currently 12 weeks!
ANSWER: The rules online for this park do not specifically give an age but the puppy needs to have ALL of his shots before coming to the dog park.

I take my 2 dogs to this

I take my 2 dogs to this park at least twice a week and it is great! They have the bags, water, pools, seating, and seperate small and large dog areas. The only problem with this park is the irresponsible owners that go there, so watch where you walk.
