11 May, 2023 | Sarah

Pet parents are you on the lookout for a safe, secure, and fun place for your dogs to exercise? Look no further than the JLT Dog Park! It has everything to keep your doggies entertained: plenty of open space, a sandpit, and even play equipment to help them burn off all that energy. There are plenty of shaded areas as well, to help your pet stay cool and not get dehydrated. 

If you’ve got a bored dog stuck at home this summer, the JLT Dog Park is a must for them to exercise, explore and make new friends! What’s more – you could also connect with a host of fellow dog lovers. Let’s look at how your pet pooch and you will benefit from regular trips to this dog-friendly JLT park:

1. Gives them a healthy dose of exercise and keeps you fit

It’s easy to forget that our pets need exercise to stay healthy and sharp. Open every day from 8 am to 9 pm, the JLT Dog Park offers 475 sqm of space for your pet pooch to run around to their heart’s content. The park is conveniently located in Cluster H, so if you live in JLT – the neighbourhood full of soul – it’s a hop, skip and jump away. You can let your pets get a cardio workout while you burn off some calories as well, running, jogging, and playing with them.

2. Helps them make new friends

Socialisation is vital for dogs to stay happy and healthy. Experts recommend that dogs spend enough time in the day playing with other canine companions. Not only do they learn new behaviour from their fellow pooches, it’s also a major stressbuster for them. Just like humans, dogs need a healthy social life for their personal growth. The JLT Dog Park lets them explore new friendships in a safe and controlled space.

3. Builds discipline and trust

Any pet parent will know how much their dogs look forward to vast open spaces to nurture their hunting instincts. While there may be no squirrels or cats to chase – being in an open park can do wonders for your pet’s mood. Moreover, having a daily routine gives them something to look forward to – and you can even use it as a reward for good behaviour. The routine will also strengthen the bond you share with your pet and build trust.

4. Beats boredom

Raising a dog in a city comes with its own set of challenges – from restrictions on where you can take them to finding ways to keep them entertained while at home. At the JLT Dog Park, your dog can roam around freely and unleashed until 9 pm. There is also plenty of dog-friendly agility equipment and other amenities – so you fur baby doesn’t get bored easily.

5. Introduces you to a community of dog lovers

As pet parents, it’s normal to seek out the company of other dog owners to discuss common issues and concerns that could affect your pet. From chasing their tails to butt scooting and howling at the moon - share a laugh with fellow pet parents over the funny and weird things your baby does. It’s kind of comforting to discover that your pooch is not unique when they chew up the laundry or destroy the couch! The JLT Dog Park is in a buzzing residential and social district – so you will have plenty of opportunities to meet and become part of a caring community of dog owners.
