I can see why pets love playground equipment. Dogs and cats often love to climb and explore, and playgrounds offer lots of open space to frolic. Many areas have special dog parks or playground areas set up for pets, which are ideal locations to go to if your pet likes to climb and explore. Of course, not all standard playgrounds are open to pets and, before you take your pet to one, you should consider a few factors:
- Does the playground allow pets? Obviously you do not want to take your pet to an area where it is not welcome.
- Is your pet sociable and will your pet be OK with other people around, especially children? Playgrounds are shared by many. If you take your pet, be sure he or she will be well behaved, and do not approach children with your pet unless they and their parents welcome it.
- Is the playground safe for your pet? If the area is not fenced, keep your pet on a leash. Also, some pets are not comfortable with playgrounds and playground equipment. For those pets, a quiet walk in the park is a better option.
Playgrounds also provide lot of great photo opportunities, as shown in the below slideshow. I love these fun photos of pets on the playground!
