Fence od part of dog park for smaller breeds in Brandon Mb
The Brandon Small Dogs Playgroup is petitioning the City of Brandon to include a specific area designated for small breed dogs only at the future dog run located at Victoria East Park. Off-leash areas for dogs are a valuable community resource for dog owners and non dog owners alike, and should be safe areas for dogs to play. However, dog runs which do not have an area for small dogs to play are discrimminating and not considering the safety of the small dogs. These off-leash areas are safe for large breed dogs, but not for small breed dogs. Large dogs can inadvertently injure smaller dogs while attempting to play, or may play too roughly for the small dogs.
