Dog Park Etiquette with Bil-Jac #Giveaway!


We love to take Lucy to the park when it's nice! We haven't taken her to a "dog park" yet but it sounds like a great way for our four-legged friend to get some much-needed exercise and socialize! Here are some dog park etiquette tips for those of you who are first-timers like us:

1. Clean up - Don't forget to pick up any messes left by your dog! The other pet-lovers at the park will appreciate it.

2. Leave your little puppy at home - Puppies under the age of four months should wait to go to a dog park.

3. Put the phone down - Make sure you are properly supervising your dog.

4. Learn some commands – Your dog should know a few basic commands before you visit a dog park. Most important might be 'come.' Bil-Jac treats are great for teaching! Visit Bil-Jac.com/products to find the best variety for you!

Lucy is super picky about dog treats, it turns out, but she loves these ones that look like little sausages!  They're sold at Petsmart, Petco, or you can find them near you at Bil-Jac.com/productlocator.


GIVEAWAY
You can win some Bil-Jac Grain Free Dog treats for your pooch! Enter below by 8/31 at 11 pm anyone's time. I'll choose a winner the next day!

Special thanks to the wonderful people at Bil-Jac for this opportunity!  All opinions are honest and our own.

  1. Your dog is so cute! Thank you for the tips – I think the one that most people at the dog park have a problem with is putting phone down. It would be nice if they would supervise their dogs more. Thank you so much for the chance to win!

  8. Just adopted a 9 month old German Shepherd / Retriever mix. Signed him up for obedience training starting 9/15. This would be perfect to help train him.

  23. Harley is only 5lbs so, we've only been to the dog park once. I'm afraid bigger dogs might squish her. It's nice to see dog parents with etiquette in mind.

  26. These are great tips. Sometimes I wish there was a big sign at our dog park about these common courtesies! My 13 pound cutie b-lines it for every pitty, lab, and anything else over 80 pounds to "play" with so dog park visits are few and far between! :)
