The dog park with the water and dock opened again, so we ran up to give the dogs some good summer fun. It was the first time for the girls, but Jäävuori knew what to do and showed them the fun to be had. The girls did get into the water but they did not go off the dock (this time.) We had not question about their love of the water but didn't know what they would do when the water was over their head. No problem for them, though. All three dogs had a ton of excitement, absolutely loving the water, the ball chasing, the other dogs, and running. This image is of Tilly standing on the dock, watching the other dogs who did jump from it. She looks wistful, but she jumped off the bank into the water and had no trouble, but the dock will be something to try on another visit.
If you are in the Salt Lake City area, or driving along I-80 and your dog(s) need a break from traveling this summer, I strongly recommend getting off at the Park City exit. They have two great dog parks that we frequent. The pond/lake with the dock is at Willow Creek Dog Park, not hard to get to. There is a separate area for dogs to run but not play in water. Both sections are plenty large enough for wide open running. There is water available for people and dogs to drink. Also, there is a great playground for kids and trails and a picnic area. If you want more info, please feel free to contact us.
We'd love to see photos of your pets swimming or playing in water -- please share!
