Walk the Dog


Are you allowed to bring dogs to the park?


Hi Stephanie,

Melbourne and its surrounding suburbs has so many parks where you can enjoy walking your dog.

However it is a good thing to check the local council by-laws regarding whether you can walk your dog or let the dog off the leash.

Here are some great resourceful Sites that can help:

# Walking dogs in parks in Victoria.

# Doggy Parks in Melbourne

Upmarket Pets Inner City
Dog Park Guide

Find the best Dog parks that we recommend!

Hope all the above gives you some great options and that both you and your canine friend enjoy the experience.

Let me know if you require any more information.

The photo I used for this page came from Liz's Flickr collection and I notified her of it being used on the site page.

At the same time I also asked if the picture had a story attached.

This is what Liz wrote back to me...

Thank you for using the photo, Marylyn.

It's a photo of Bob - he was elderly (10 yo) when the photo was taken (about 3.5 yrs ago), and unfortunately he died in August this year of liver disease and diabetes.

He was a Jack Russell x collie (a Jollie ;¬) )

He had a big character, and he's still much loved and still missed, although I have a new dog now - a rescue called Smokey, another JRT (a Parsons this time, and probably pure bred) - he's about 3.5 or 4 years old.

It was a lovely surprise waking up on Christmas Day to find that one of Bob's photos had been used on your website!

Thank you once again!

Liz x

And Don't Forget To Be Sun Smart

You cannot feel or see UV (Ultraviolet radiation). We can see the sun's light and we can feel the sun's warmth (the infrared radiation). Our senses don't pick up on UV radiation and this is why it is so damaging.

Right across Australia this UV radiation varies, it being determined by the time of day, time of year, the weather including cloud cover, how close to the equator the position is and other considerable scientific factors.
