Owners Would Like More Grass


The gang at All Things Dog Blog is not just a dog park loving bunch; we're die hard enthusiasts of the dog park lifestyle. We enjoy a variety of parks in our area and try to catch up with a few of the dog Meetup groups at various park outings.


That's why we're so excited to hear about the dog park appreciation project called ROOM TO RUN™, sponsored by Nutro. Their Facebook events page has a nice video from last year's project, as well as a map of locations, a park user poll, photos from last year, and contact info for volunteering. You can email nutro@edelman.com to get details on how you can help.


Pledging to enhance or improve 30 dog parks around the country, they certainly do have their kibble bowl full. Volunteers will be sought to participate in these events, to occur June 12-19 all around the U.S. and Canada.


This is a great way to get involved in making a dog park even better--adopt it! For more ideas, check out our Adopt a Dog Park page.


Projects will vary from park to park, depending on the area of greatest need. Some examples are painting benches, assembling benches, planting trees, removing debris, and pruning landscape.We're especially excited to see two Florida parks on the roster of parks slated for assistance. Check the map on their Facebook page to see if your area is part of the plan, and then come on down and lend a hand. It's sure to be a satisfying day of camaraderie and great accomplishments.

Hope to see you there!


And as always, don't forget to visit 5 Minutes for Fido, where Tanner and Oliver spout off their opinions and generally offer up silliness.
