Just strolling by
Having a four-legged friend with his fur all over your lap is probably the best feeling as these babies serve to be the most significant member of the family for all pet lovers. It’s all rainbows and sunshine until furry ones wag their tails for an outing and the most you can do is take them for a stroll on the streets. If you wish to give your pets the best walk experiences, let us take away your sorrows and break the exclusive dog parks you can take your buddy to.
The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation has taken an initiative and built a bone-shaped park for the furry tribe to fraternise with their kind. The park not only includes a walking track, but also a Loo Café, eatery, paw-shaped splash puddles, weave posts, hoop jumps etc. When one takes a pet on walks, all sorts of workouts and exercises are required in order to keep them in good health and shape akin to humans. When we take them on a stroll in a lane, most of the activities aren’t covered, however, dog parks allow you to be flexible with the activities you involve your perfect pawed friends in. “I have been waiting for our country to finally understand how our pets are our family. I have a german shepherd at home, Shadow, I have been yearning to take her to a park where she gets to stretch. Like humans have gyms, dogs should at least have an activity-place no? A dog park will serve as that place, where she can explore her potential and just be herself without any restrictions you know. Where she can just meet other dogs, socialise without me having to pull her leash every five minutes. Finally, I can take her to a dog park, this actually is something for me and my buddy to look forward to”, says Rajeev Pandey, resident, Hyderabad. Another dog park, situated in Hyderabad is located on Necklace road, allowing your pets to whiff around as they exchange woofs with their friends. Bangalore is no less when it comes to creating a space for dogs to hang around in. Petboro Park is the place for you to take your canine friends and let them jump over those hoops and crawl under those loops. It is a cheery open space for you to cherish a sight of your fur baby having fun! Domlur Dog Park is yet another space for your pooch to wag in. Considering how the garbage dump has been transformed into this play space for pets, it is fascinating and commendable both. A rare characteristic of the park remains the dog-parents maintaining the space to let their four-legged family get the best of all worlds. The park also consists of a poop corner, which is a compost pit for the defecated waste of pooches. “I have recently shifted to Bangalore, and it is pure bliss to finally see some dog parks opening around and what better to pamper and surprise your dog with? It’s great to not think of people being afraid of your pet or being offended by seeing them run free. I can see him chase his tail without dragging him home due to societal restrictions and bias. Whenever I even mention the park, he starts woofing and gets all enthusiastic about swirling in the mud with other dog friends of his”, says Shreya Kataria, software engineer, Bangalore. Commenting on Bangalore supporting dog parks, Sangeeta Dey, engineer, says “I am a huge, huge dog lover. And visiting dog parks with my dog is one thing which keeps me connected to my love for dogs and lets him befriend his kind. I am so happy that pets’ health and well-being is finally something we see as a priority. I think I am going to get another pet soon, now that we have a healthy space for them to play and grow in.” With a number of dog parks opening up and furry beings having their own space, the change pet lovers had been coveting to see is finally here. It would bloom those fur-heads physically as well as mentally. Baby steps leading to a better, evolved pet-friendly place, where we can simply amble around with our wet-nosed canines is what we all look forward to.
