 Charleston SC Dog Parks – Keeping Your Four Legged, Furry Children Happy!

Charleston SC Dogs at PlayMy sister and her husband have two gorgeous, four legged, furry children… ( photos attached) and locating a dog-friendly park was a critical element in their search for a new home.

So , why haven’t  I considered researching the Dog Parks in the Charleston SC area before now… No answer except to say I am making up for lost time…

It is natural for dogs to want to socialize and play with other dogs. They are after all descendent from wolves and the pack instinct is strong.  But … domestic dogs leave the “Pack” (their litter mates)  typically by 8 weeks of age. So it is up to us humans to provide friendly opportunites for our “ four legged- furry “ children to socialize with their doggy peers as well as people other than their owners.

Charleston SC Dog Parks - Dogs and Owners 

Dogs that are allowed to socialize with other animals and owners build good relationships and develop positive coping skills – reducing stress & anxiety…  Several online sources suggest that well socialized dogs that receive exercise,play with other dogs & owners are less aggressive in their behavior.

So if you have been considering buying a home in Charleston SC or the surrounding area and were wondering; “Where can I take my dog for some exercise and interaction with other canines ? “  " Where are all the Charleston SC Dog Parks?" Here is your answer… Just one caveat “PLEASE COMPLY WITH DOG PARK ETIQUETTE”
