Dog Park Wilanów, the catwalk in Stegny or the playground for dogs in Górczewska Park are just a few of the dog park options in Warsaw. We would like to add that in our opinion, before you go to the dog park, observe your dog. Are you sure he plays well with a group of other dogs? Dog play is not a crazy chase during which pets bump into each other, objects or guardians. It is alternating, there are breaks and, most importantly, longer rests. A relaxed dog is one whose body is not tense, runs softly and rests by sniffing or even lying down for a while.
To ensure comfortable interaction between dogs, two key things are necessary: time and space. These elements are often missing at dog parks.
When we enter an area where there are already several dogs, it is worth remembering that they are usually already excited and nervous. They usually wait at the entrance, and their first reaction is to immediately surround our pet, sniffing it and not allowing it to quietly meet other dogs. This situation can lead to potential conflicts, or at least causes great discomfort and stress for dogs.
