Anderson, IN (PRWEB) June 28, 2012
A trip to the dog park has everything your furry friend could ask for: the sun in his face, the wind in his fur, friends to play with and no cumbersome leash to hold him back. The only thing that can spoil the experience is bad behavior – either by him or another irresponsible guest.
“Dogs are social animals, just like people, and they love the opportunity to go out and mingle,” says Cindy Dunston Quirk, owner and developer of Scout & Zoe’s Natural Antler Dog Chews. “For many dogs, especially those who live in the city, opportunities to run free are hard to come by. We look at it as an important part of a healthy lifestyle. So it’s definitely worth a little planning and effort to make sure your pet’s trip to the park is a success.”
From the Association of Pet Dog Trainers, here are some important Do’s and Don’ts to consider when taking a trip to the local dog park.

“A trip to the park is great exercise, for both of you,” says Cindy. “If there’s not a dog park in your area, consider leading an effort to create one! It’s the kind of family tradition that builds memories and makes for a healthier and happier pet.”
About Scout & Zoe’s: Scout & Zoe’s Natural Antler Dog Chews are 100 percent natural premium elk antlers, gathered only after they’ve been shed naturally as part of the animal’s life cycle.
Scout & Zoe’s are superior to other chews in helping dogs maintain clean, healthy teeth and contain trace minerals such as calcium and phosphorous which add to the pet’s overall health.
Antler chews are the right choice for the 15 to 20 percent of dogs with allergies to beef or pork, as well as those who suffer from certain other digestive problems. They’re a safer choice for any dog, because antler chews don’t splinter like bones. Owners like them because they don’t wind up in a gooey mess like rawhide, and best of all they take away the need for pets to chew on furniture, shoes and other things around the house.
Typically lasting four to six weeks, Scout & Zoe’s chews are available in a variety of sizes to suit every breed. No animals are harmed and no violence is imposed on any elk during the gathering of the antlers.
