Wellington's first fully fenced dog exercise area should be completed in the next fortnight. Mirimar Vet Allan Probert has organised a $20,000 fundraiser to complete the fencing of Cog Park, near Greta Pt in Evans Bay.
He said it was about time that Wellington Dog Owners had a fully fenced area where they could safely let their dog off the leash. He said dog owners, who pay Wellington City Council $1 million a year in fees, deserved something for their money and he could see a good case for similar exercise areas in other suburbs. The park was partially fenced and he expected work to completely fence it would start within the next week.

I imagine that people will come to this, Wellingtons First Fully Fenced Dog Park from ALL over Wellington...
as its invaluable for:
small dog safety, for those that are timid, or afraid of large dogs...
retaining puppies in training within the Dog Park,
for teaching Recall to your Dog,
and of course the Biggy... Keeping Your dog OFF the road and out of the Traffic ! ( I'm sure most of us have had a dog that suddenly decides that its a good idea to pop across the road, out of the Dog Park, to visit / meet and greet another dog on the other side ! (painted on ears, all of a sudden ! )
Pass the word and let all your doggy friends and those you meet,
know that Cog Park Dog Park is Open !
See you out there, Penny - Loose Leash Dog Walking
and as Allan Probert says " Enjoy ! "
