General Advice

It is a given that all members of the dog run cherish their four legged pals. Yet, from time-to-time, folks loose track of what is important. If you find yourself exposed to a situation that is bothersome, or even making you hot under the collar, simply leave the run. Better to leave happily, under your own terms, then to leave angrily, never to return. While the rules of the run are there to make the run more useable to us all, some will always abuse the privilege this park affords our pets. You can truly be a monitor of your own behavior, not others, nor their pets. The signs are clearly posted, most people are not illiterate, so if they choose to break the "rules of the run" they're doing so willingly. Unless you truly feel they missed the signage at the gate, it is doubtful that pointing out the rules will elicit the response you want. Fortunately, our membership tends to be a good lot and follows the rules making the Freeway Dog Run one of the finest in the city and for this Arf-Arf thanks you.
