Dogs Flourish In Local Off-Leash Dog Park
The off-leash dog park at Chambers Creek Properties (adjacent to the Chambers Bay Golf Course) in University Place has been a source of pure joy for my family and our family dog, eight month old Border Collie, Kona. The park is clean, lots of water for pooches, and benches and great scenery for humans, it's a great play to play with your dog and to meet other folks with their four-legged friends. The park is maintained and organized by a local volunteer driven organization called SUNDogs. Click on the link to check them out and see how you can help, too. It's a fun place and neat group that's easy to love.
Speaking of love, my Kona gets so excited when we say dog park to her! She loves to run like the wind and catch a frisbee in her mouth. She socializes with other dogs a little, but as a Border Collie (a working breed), she is focused on her human family and her work (work being defined as getting that frisbee). It's fun to watch her have so much joy and the other dogs as well.
The other enjoyment that I personally get is talking to the other owners. Dog park folks are so darn nice! And I love to learn about their dogs, the dog's breeds, if there were a rescue/adopted dog, and the dogs little quirks. I learn so much, get fresh air, and with the upcoming springtime, perhaps a little sunshine too!
