Our fav park ... Large enough to play and run ... Yet small enough to watch and control your dog's outing ... We've been there half a dozen times so far and really like it ... Responsible owners ... Nice pooches ... Great space ...

I have been going to this dog park almost everyday for 8 years with my 2 Labs. I like to share some tips on how to have a good time for you and your dog. 1. Go to the park at the same time every time. You get to meet the same people and your dog will see the same dogs and get comfortable with those dogs and people (dogs make friends too). 3 things are common when dogs fight. First the dogs don't know each other and it's usally over a toy or food. If you have 2 dogs that know each other they are far less likely to fight and they play hard when they trust each other. When my 2 Labs go at it many times someone new to the park will ask if somebody is going to break it up until they find out their sisters and that normal play for them. As for peole talking with each all the time how else or we going the solve the world's problems !
best dog park in allegheny county

My dog and I visited this dog park today, and it was by far our favorite. There were over twenty very well behaved dogs there today. No fights, or fuss. Plenty of room to run, places to sit, a water fountain, and it is completely enclosed. There is mulch and grass throughout. I will definitely be coming back more often!

The park is nice, have been here a few times. It does get muddy, but that's to be expected that's Mother Nature. It's the end of March, the Park's not muddy today. My only complaint us the water is not turned on., and there are burr bushes, you gave to check your dogs fur and paws, and pick the burrs out. I believe these burr bushes should be removed from the park, for a more pleasurable experience for the dogs & their owners.

Largely Good Experiences

This is a well-used dog park, and thus the grass is patchy in places. During dry weather, you'll get a bit dusty, and during wet weather you'll want to carry towels in your vehicle to towel off your dog after park use. My dogs span a range from 11 pounds to 150 pounds, and we've never had a bad experience with other dogs or their owners. We spend time in the park at least once weekly, usually more often than that. I recommend the park to anyone who understands that dog parks are an excuse for dogs and people to get a bit dirty, and knows that not all dogs will enjoy being with all other dogs and knows how to pull their dog(s) out of potentially difficult or dangerous situations (true of ALL dog parks).
the people mess this place up

Like a few other people have mentioned on here that some owners need to pay attention to their dogs. I was trying to get my dog out of the fenced in area because there was a man with his dog and once i called mine he yanked his dogs leash and kicked my dog therefore making the dogs fight. Hewas very rude my dog was under control but as soon add he reacted both his and mine also reacted. I am sure my dog slipped in the fence before i could grab her but as soon ashe kicked my dog that's the end of that.

I had been to this dog park a few times before the final experience and found it to be mostly dirt/mud and many of the owners stand around and talk to each other, not paying attention to their own dogs. My pitbull/lab mix was running around and trying to get another dog to play with her(no aggression). The owner didn't want any dog bothering his so he grabbed MY dog by the collar and lifted her off her feet and yelled in her face. I was stunned. No more
Would not recommend

My sister and I tried this park once with her dog. We found the park to be dirty and muddy, and there were several dogs there that acted in an aggressive manner. We eventually left because her dog kept getting jumped at and snapped at by other dogs, and at least one of the attacks was completely unprovoked. The owners of the aggressive dogs did not appear to be keeping a close eye on their dogs or correcting their dogs at all. My sister is a regular at dog parks with her dog, and said that this was the worst one she has ever been at. I would not recommend this park.

We tried this park 3 times. It is mostly dirt or mud. Also, the last time on the way out my dog ended up on the bottom of 3 dogs [shortest]. A pit bull had it's ear torn by whatever the tallest dog was. Obviously, it could have handled the situation, but was a therapy dog and left the area without a fight. So much for the bad rap they get. Bottom line: dirty, on a hillside [unless you like mud] and watch out for dogs that attack.
