Female dogs in heat can cause aggression in male dogs. Also, females in heat should be kept at home in order to prevent unwanted puppies. - Do not give treats to any dog without the owner’s permission. - Some dogs may have allergic reactions to some treats. - Owners must clean up any dog droppings made by their pets. - Bag all droppings before depositing them in provided receptacles. - Owners help keep the dog park clean and well maintained by picking up after their pets. - Owners must fill in any holes made by their pets. - Owners who fill in holes dug by their pets help maintain the dog park.
