For Dog Day, our growing dog training promenade

.

In honor of National Dog Day (in America, at least) and for Camera Critters meme, here are some fresh photos of our town's dog training promenade.


It is a work in progress, made by volunteers, friends of our local veterinarian Dr. Doron Avishai,  who died before his time.


The builders left their names and messages in the concrete next to the water bowl.
To see how much has been added lately and to check out the various wooden training things, see my post from 2015.
And here you can enjoy pictures of the happy Dog Day that was held there in cooperation with the vet's widow.


The main rule listed here is to keep your dog on a leash.
This is in contrast to the official bare-bones Dog Park built by the Meitar Local Council right across the path; see the difference here.


Another welcome new addition is a patch of bare land where the sign invites you to scatter seeds of wildflowers from our own Negev desert region.
There's also a caveat: Please do not spray here.

Happy Dog Day!

I'm so happy to see the dog parks, Dina. We have a new dog this year, after our Golden Retriever died, and she recently visited her first off-leash dog park. While we were still in the car, she barked a lot, because she sees it as her duty, all 40 pounds of her, to protect us from other dogs. However, when we got out of the car, she stopped barking and began meeting the other dogs. We were so proud of her!
