There’s no doubt that pet owners value their four-legged friends as members of the family. To see how important my dog is to my life, just take a look at my blog name!
If you have a dog, I don’t have to tell you how energetic they can be. Our dog, Annie, still loves to run, jump, and play – just like she did when she was a puppy!
That’s why I’m excited to share details about the Beneful Dream Dog Park Project. This initiative is bringing dog parks to pet families all over the country, which is perfect for energetic dogs like Annie (and my other 5: Trevor, Blaze, Willie, Fat Head, and Boudreaux)!
How Dog Parks Benefit Pets and Owners
Dogs need a lot of time outside. They need time to run around, exercise, and meet other dogs. For lots of pet families, though, outdoor space for pets to play is at a minimum. And that’s where community dog parks are a huge help to both pets and owners!
We don’t have a local dog park in our area, but I would definitely love it if we did! At a dog park, we’d have a chance to let Annie run and play as much as she wanted without worrying about space. Plus, she could meet other dogs and I could meet other dog owners! Since we live in such a busy society, dog parks make it possible to for us to slow down and reconnect with our neighbors and their pets.
What is the Beneful Dream Dog Park Project?
Like me, Purina is passionate about the value of dog parks in building community. In fact, for the last five years, the Beneful Dream Dog Park Project has been helping to build and renovate dog parks around the U.S.!
While the project started as a contest, it has grown into something much larger. This year, the team has set a goal of supporting twelve different dog parks in the country, either by donating materials or providing service days. To accomplish this, Purina is partnering with GoFundMe to give dog park organizers a chance to create dog park improvement campaigns and raise funds.
