After what has been nearly a 10 year process, the Rhinelander community has finally been granted the luxury of a public dog park. The positive impacts that this will have on all dog owners in the area seem to be endless.

As the number of dog owners has been on the steady rise over the past years the need for a place to take our furry friends continues to become more and more of a priority.

“My two favorite things are that they have a gate system where you go in one gate and close the door behind you and then you go in just in case other dogs already in the park won’t run towards your dog,” Said Morgan Elko, a frequent user of the dog park.

As you can see, the new dog park allows a safe place to take your pup with lots of great features to make your visit the best that it can be. Along with the features that it allows, the park is the only one of its kind around Rhinelander which is what makes it so unique.

“They also have a cool water fountain that you can use and then with the push of a button you can make it so your dog can drink too,” Said Elko.

This goes hand in hand with the great features that the park has to offer. With so many people and dogs using the park, the need for hydration is a necessity if the overall goal of the park is to satisfy the need of both the owner and dog.  

“We are much happier especially my dog,” Said Lisa Sandstrom, who uses the park on a weekly basis.

The park has a positive impact on the community because it makes us happier. The fact that our dogs are happier and less energetic means that we will also be in a better mood.

“She gets very excited, her tail starts wagging and she even starts to cry a little bit if she can’t get in the park fast enough,” Sandstrom said.

The opening of the dog park over this past summer has impacted anyone’s dog who uses the park in positive ways. As said above, dogs get excited even when they are near the park.

“Woof.” Exclaimed the yellow lab at the park.

The tone in the yellow lab’s bark at the park had a certain tone to it that if you were there to hear it you would know that it was a bark of happiness. The overall impact of the dog park on the dogs around Rhinelander has resulted in much happier pets.

All in all, the dog park provides the public with a safe and secure place to take whatever type of dog you have in your life. As long as the crowd that uses the park continues to take care of the complex, the dog park is something that could be a part of our lives for several years to come.
