Petition Create and Open a Japanese style Dog Park at a suitable location in Jersey
There are no enclosed and controlled areas on the Island to socialise dogs appropriately. In Japan "Dog Parks" are common in most areas where dogs are able to interact in enclosed areas segregated by canine weight ranges. This interaction is pivotal to maintaining a dog's (and owner's) wellbeing.
There are thousands of dogs in Jersey and sometimes beaches and paths are not enclosed enough to be suitable for dog socialising. Socialising is so important for puppies development into friendly and confident dogs which increases the wellbeing of dogs and owners throughout their lives. Controlling socialising in a safe environment by dog weight, like a Japanese Dog Park, would be beneficial to Jersey and take the pressure off of beaches and paths where sometimes aggressive interactions occur.
