The idea of a dog park is certainly appealing, particularly if your dog spends most of his time on a leash or at home alone. But not all dog parks are created equal; nor do all dog parks work for every dog. In fact, some don’t work at all.
Several years ago, our Corgi, Bedford, devoured an entire box of chocolate truffles when my back was turned. In those pre-Internet days, my only options were to (a) dig out my book on pet first aid (if I had had one and if I knew where it was), (b) scoop him up and rush to the closest veterinary clinic (which wasn't close at all), or (c) call the poison control hotline. Fast forward to the age of mobile apps. Wherever you are, you pretty much have whatever pet info you need. . . .
