Woofstock Park is a popular destination in Woodstock for pet owners. With the spring upon us, it is incredibly tempting to visit the park with your dog. Before visiting, make sure you look over basic rules of thumb shared by Bark Station owner Lorre LaMarca in her March article titled, “Dog Park Etiquette 101.”
Take a look in the dictionary and you’ll find the definition of etiquette as, “the customary code of polite behavior in society or among members of a particular profession or group.” When it comes to pet ownership, there are special considerations that should be taken regarding others and their animals. We think that the guidelines outlined by Lorre LaMarca make for a great etiquette guide for pet owners, or what we like to refer to as petiquette.
These guidelines will be especially important this season with easier access to Woofstock Park. In January, the official ribbon cutting was held for the Woofstock Park Trail Head. In case you missed it with all of our cold and snow, the Town to Creek and Noonday Creek trails are connected to Woofstock Park with the new trail head and bridge. Take a look at the Woofstock Park Facebook page to see the many transitions that have happened in the space over the years. This is also a great resource to find notifications as to whether or not the park is closed before you go.
