Dog-Friendly Parks - Stark & Summit Counties, OH - DeHOFF REALTORS

Walking your dog yields some great benefits for you as well as your pooch, and the activity has its own week October 1-7 to call attention to its advantages. In addition to being good exercise that helps you both keep your weight in check, walking your pup lets you both socialize. It also helps keep Fido from getting bored and engaging in destructive behaviors.

Dog parks are the perfect spot to walk your dog for a bit and then take him off-leash to romp in a safe area. Our real estate agents suggest visiting the following dog parks in Stark and Summit counties during Walk Your Dog Week and beyond.

  • Dick Goddard Dog Park at Ariss Park - 2520 Wise Rd., North Canton, OH 44720
    Located within 80-acre Ariss Park near North Canton homes for sale, Dick Goddard Dog Park has separate areas for large and small dogs. Those over 25 pounds have a 1.3-acre area, and small dogs weighing 25 pounds or less have a half acre of space. You'll also find a nearly two-acre off-leash dog run and water fountains for both of you.

  • Veterans Park Dog Park - 1714 Schneider St. NE, Canton, OH 44721
