The dos and don’ts of using off-leash dog parks

Off-leash areas like a 'mosh pit for dogs'

Canberra 2600
Charlie Brown the chocolate Labrador enjoys meeting other pooches and running around Canberra dog parks. Finally it is important to note that dog parks are not suitable for all dogs, and those that are aggressive or overly shy should not be taken into an off-leash enclosure. “If owners are not watching what the animals are doing, the dogs can get into a fight and then it’s too late — it’s a bad experience for the dogs,” Ms Gregor said. If a dog’s not enjoying it, take them out and take them for a walk instead. (ABC Radio Canberra: Penny Travers)
Dog parks are a place for humans to socialise too. Photo:
Dog parks offer a chance for pooches like Louie and Tilly to socialise off the lead. “Don’t try and push them into having these interactions. Do not go into the enclosure if it is already crowded. “You should already have a dog that is good with other dogs before you go into an off-lead area.”

Dog park etiquette Park dos:Dogs coming into the dog park must be registered, desexed (unless a permit has been issued), and fully vaccinatedKeep your dog under effective control and leave if it becomes aggressiveClean up and place waste in the bins providedChildren are vulnerable to attack so supervise them carefullyKeep the number of dogs you bring to two per owner preferablyIf there are small and large dog enclosures, make sure you use the appropriate onePark don’ts:Don’t come into the park if your dog is unvaccinated, aggressive or on heatDon’t bring puppies that have not completed their vaccinationsDon’t bring in food or toysDon’t bring in children under 14 without an adultDon’t let your dog off-lead if you don’t have a reliable recall(Source: ACT Government)

Keep an eye on your dog at all times and don’t get too caught up in socialising yourself. (ABC Radio Canberra: Penny Travers)
Firstly, dogs should be fully vaccinated, desexed and registered before going to a dog park.Jane Gregor from RSPCA ACT said dogs should also have had previous interaction with other canines. “A dog park should not be used to teach your dog how to behave with other dogs,” she said. Once inside, pay attention to your dog’s cues and respond to their posture and body language accordingly.”If they’re hanging around your legs, they’re obviously not enjoying being in that park area so take them out,” Ms Gregor said. “Their world is fairly limited when it’s only your house,” she said.”But when you bring them somewhere like this, they can literally run around and sniff everything they want to sniff and they have such a good time.”Well behaved dogs only pleaseWith all these dogs off the leash, what should owners consider to ensure their visit to a dog park is a positive experience? “It’s a great way of meeting other doggy parents and talking about your dogs and finding things in common,” Ms Tamm said. “He’s much more settled dealing with dogs of different types and different personalities when he encounters them on his walks and other activities.”

Charlie Brown enjoys meeting new four-legged friends at the Yarralumla dog park. His owner, Stephanie Tamm, has been taking him to dog parks at least once a week for more than two years. “It’s really so good for them to meet and play with other dogs, I think it makes them happier dogs,” Ms Richardson said. (ABC Radio Canberra: Penny Travers)
Ms Richardson encouraged everyone to take their dog to a dog park. “An owner should be able to call their dog and their dog should be able to come when called,” Ms Gregor said.”If it’s not that reliable, they should still have a dog that they can just go over and get straight away.”Keep an eye on your dog, read its cuesBefore entering an off-leash area, watch how the other dogs are interacting and make sure they are all having a good time. “It’s lovely being able to play freely and run around with the other dogs and he’s a very sociable dog, so having that interaction is great. “The socialisation between dogs isn’t as good when they’re on the leash.”

Mattie and Indie go for a run at Belconnen dog park each week. Brea Richardson and Brian Kay also take their dogs Mattie and Indie to dog parks a few times a week so they can socialise with other canines. “You don’t want to make it a bad experience for them because if they learn from a bad experience it can then actually make them become dog aggressive.”

Dogs at dog parks should respond to their owners when called. “Primarily it’s for his socialisation,” Ms Tamm said.

Owl City – MONTANA

Paul
Hopped on a train and headed west
Got a job at a St. A fifteen year old kid from St. Mary Restaurant
Washing dishes and making friends
The years went by like the seasons
And they brought him a lifetime of joy
He bought ten or twelve acres of heaven
With a paradise vantage point
and he built a cabin at the foot of the mountains
That stole his heart when he was a boy
On North Fork Road you’re almost home
Get lost in Montana
Where your heart can finally roam
Get lost in Montana
Where the mountains call you home
Get lost forever in Montana
His son worked hard in West Glacier
His daughter sold souvenirs
And he always went back to Polebridge
With his family every year
To his green tin roof in the Rockies
And a sky so full of stars
His spirit lives in these mountaians
Where Montana first stole his heart
On North Fork Road, you’re almost home
Get lost in Montana
Where your heart can finally roam
Get lost in Montana
Where the mountains call you home
Get lost forever in Montana
Two words on a bumper sticker
Were all I needed to read
I found myself for the first time
When Montana enchanted me
So get lost in the Big Sky country
Where adventure calls your name
Every moment is worth more than diamonds
When you spend time in the treasure state
So get lost in the Big Sky country
And let your heart lead the way

Kenny Lattimore – Stay On Your Mind (Lyric Video)

Wanna make you feel it in your soul
I’m on top of my game no question
I’m the one to kiss all of your pain away
Don’t hold back, let me

[Chorus]
Want to be the first thing on your mind in the morning
Like the song on the radio that you
Can’t stop singing
Everlasting memories
Come take this ride with me
Can I just take my time
Make this good so that I’ll…
Stay on your mind
Don’t you go stressin’, babe
Stay on your mind
Oh, I got a confession, my profession to love you
Stay on your mind
Ooh, let me take control and I, I promise, girl
Stay on your mind
Ooh, just tell me when, tell me where and I’ll… So good, ain’t I? Tonight I got all the answers
Just let me lead the way
Slow romancing in this room
We can turn off all the lights
Sugar, gonna give all of me to you
Yeah, all I wanna do is
[Chorus:]
Stay on your mind
I know you be stressing, let me take care of it, I wanna
Stay on your mind
I got a confession, it’s my profession, let me
Stay on your mind
If that’s alright with you, all I wanna do is
Stay on your mind
So tell me when, tell me where, and I’ll
Stay on your mind
[Verse 2:]
You can take control
I’ll return the favor
If that’s what you want
I’m good, ain’t I?

Imagine Dragons – Next To Me

[Verse 1]
Something about the way that you walked into my living room
Casually and confident lookin’ at the mess I am
But still you, still you want me
Stress lines and cigarettes, politics and deficits
Late bills and overages, screamin’ and hollerin’
But still you, still you want me
[Chorus]
Oh, I always let you down
You’re shattered on the ground
But still I find you there
Next to me
And oh, stupid things I do
I’m far from good, it’s true
But still I find you
Next to me (next to me)
[Verse 2]
There’s something about the way that you always see the pretty view
Overlook the blooded mess, always lookin’ effortless
And still you, still you want me
I got no innocence, faith ain’t no privilege
I am a deck of cards, vice or a game of hearts
And still you, still you want me

[Chorus]
Oh, I always let you down
You’re shattered on the ground
But still I find you there
Next to me
And oh, stupid things I do
I’m far from good, it’s true
But still I find you
Next to me (next to me)
[Bridge]
So thank you for taking a chance on me
I know it isn’t easy
But I hope to be worth it (oh)
So thank you for taking a chance on me
I know it isn’t easy
But I hope to be worth it (oh)
[Chorus]
Oh, I always let you down (I always let you down)
You’re shattered on the ground, (shattered on the ground)
But still I find you there
Next to me
And oh, stupid things I do (stupid things I do)
I’m far from good, it’s true
But still I find you
Next to me (next to me)

Dua Lipa – IDGAF (feat. Charli XCX, Zara Larsson, Mø & Alma) (In The Live Lounge) (Live)

You call me all friendly
Tellin’ me how much you miss me
That’s funny, I guess you’ve heard my songs
Well, I’m too busy for your business
Go find a girl who wants to listen
‘Cause if you think I was born yesterday
You have got me wrong
So I cut you off
I don’t need your love
‘Cause I already cried enough
I’ve been done
I’ve been movin’ on since we said goodbye
I cut you off
I don’t need your love, so you can try all you want
Your time is up, I’ll tell you why
You say you’re sorry
But it’s too late now
So save it, get gone, shut up
‘Cause if you think I care about you now
Well, boy, I don’t give a fuck
I remember that weekend
When my best friend caught you creepin’
You blamed it all on the alcohol
So I made my decision
‘Cause you made your bed, sleep in it
Play the victim and switch your position
I’m through, I’m done
So I cut you off
I don’t need your love
‘Cause I already cried enough
I’ve been done
I’ve been movin’ on since we said goodbye
I cut you off
I don’t need your love, so you can try all you want
Your time is up, I’ll tell you why
You say you’re sorry
But it’s too late now
So save it, get gone, shut up
‘Cause if you think I care about you now
Well, boy, I don’t give a fuck
I see you tryna’ get to me
I see you beggin’ on your knees
Boy, I don’t give a fuck
So stop tryna’ get to me
Tch, get up off your knees
‘Cause, boy, I don’t give a fuck
About you
No, I don’t give a damn
You keep reminiscin’ on when you were my man
But I’m over you
Now you’re all in the past
You talk all that sweet talk, but I ain’t comin’ back
Cut you off
I don’t need your love
So you can try all you want
Your time is up, I’ll tell you why
(I’ll tell you why)
You say you’re sorry
But it’s too late now
So save it, get gone, shut up
(Too late now)
‘Cause if you think I care about you now
Well, boy, I don’t give a fuck
(Boy, I don’t give a fuck)
I see you tryna’ get to me
I see you beggin’ on your knees
Boy, I don’t give a fuck
So stop tryna’ get to me (Get to me)
Tch, get up off your knees
‘Cause, boy, I don’t give a fuck

Chase Rice – Amen

[Verse 1]
Maybe your granddad kept his dogtags hanging on the rearview
And maybe your mama drove you around in a Chevy Nova bright blue
Might’ve got your 16 first date, yes at a slider in the drivethrough
Down Main Street, she was so cute, ended up just friends
If it sounds like it could’ve been you, or it’s somewhere you might’ve been
Can I get an amen
[Chorus]
For a roman candle sky
A July praying for rain
Yeah, sparks out the window, cigarette
With her silhouette caught in the flames
The keys to a fix-it-up dream
A love, and a first-crush heart
And to not knowing the secrets of life
But damn sure knowing where it starts
Amen, amen, amen
[Verse 2]
And maybe you shot some bullet holes through tail of a windmill
Stuck a cross in some flowers by the road on the edge of a wheat field
And maybe that scar on your hands from a midnight parking lot disagreement with one of your buddies
So you squared off, then you made up
With a tailgate cold beer apology
Just some memories that’ll always be

[Chorus]
In a roman candle sky
A July praying for rain
Yeah, sparks out the window, cigarette
With her silhouette caught in the flames
The keys to a fix-it-up dream
A love, and a first-crush heart
And to not knowing the secrets of life
But damn sure knowing where it starts
Amen, amen, amen
[Bridge]
Yeah, amen
Ooh, amen
[Chorus]
For a roman candle sky
A July praying for rain
Yeah, the sparks out the window, cigarette
With her silhouette caught in the flames
The keys to a fix-it-up dream
A love, and a first-crush heart
And to not knowing the secrets of life
But damn sure knowing where it starts
Amen, amen, amen
Ooh, amen

Madness – Keep Moving

Hurry up
Don’t slow down
Pick a time
Don’t let hands pull you down
If you’re waiting
Have it up
Move along
Say goodbye
Don’t let words stay too long
If you’re leaving
It read
We missed you
Between the lines
It said hold it high
With a smile
Speak out loud
With the mind of a child
If you’re lucky
It read
We missed you
Between the lines
It said hurry up
We really must be going there’s no time to delay
We have to leave our message because we can’t stay
It really is important so remember take care
Please keep on moving ‘cos there’s nobody there
It read
We missed you
Between the lines it said
We’ve waited for so long
But now it’s time t-t-to keep moving along
Here and there are the signs
On the road give way to stop and go
When you’re moving
It read
We missed you
Between the lines it said
We’ve waited for so long
But now it’s time to to to keep moving along
Keep moving, you’ve got to keep moving
Keep, keep, you’ve got to keep moving
to keep moving along

Ke$ha – Praying (At Hollywood Palladium Honda Stage) (Live)

[Verse 1]
Well, you almost had me fooled
Told me that I was nothing without you
Oh, but after everything you’ve done
I can thank you for how strong I have become
[Pre-Chorus]
‘Cause you brought the flames and you put me through hell
I had to learn how to fight for myself
And we both know all the truth I could tell
I’ll just say this is I wish you farewell
[Chorus]
I hope you’re somewhere prayin’, prayin’
I hope your soul is changin’, changin’
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees, prayin’
[Verse 2]
I’m proud of who I am
No more monsters, I can breathe again
And you said that I was done
Well, you were wrong and now the best is yet to come
‘Cause I can make it on my own
And I don’t need you, I found a strength I’ve never known
I’ll bring thunder, I’ll bring rain, oh-oh
When I’m finished, they won’t even know your name

[Pre-Chorus]
You brought the flames and you put me through hell
I had to learn how to fight for myself
And we both know all the truth I could tell
I’ll just say this is I wish you farewell
[Chorus]
I hope you’re somewhere prayin’, prayin’
I hope your soul is changin’, changin’
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees, prayin’
[Bridge]
Oh, sometimes, I pray for you at night
Someday, maybe you’ll see the light
Oh, some say, in life, you’re gonna get what you give
But some things only God can forgive

I hope your soul is changin’, changin’
I hope you find your peace

I work, I don’t break ’em for nobody
Do you understand? living life like superstars, got it made
I ain’t lying man, I swear to God
We on our J’s all night and day, no sleep
Been four day, niggas always wonder how I’m winning
Because I hustle every day, and don’t do no spending
All my Ace of Spade days way in the past
I only celebrate birthdays and fuck off the cash
Kept spending but a hustler had to invest
Fuck fucking off the cash, just to stay fresh
Thinking back on them days, all the money I made
Could have bought another crib with all that money I paid
Everyday I’m on my grind trying to get to it
And if you use your mind, I bet you can do it
Niggas love to act blind and try to play stupid
Just leave their lazy ass behind and go keep it moving
Ten cars back to back, you can tell we living large
We living like the mob
Police on my dick, ’cause I got a hundred cars
We some hood superstars, all my niggas instant millionaires
Moving keys, been real for a long time
We OG’s, in the hood you can ask about me
They know me, I been balling before you big timers had O.z’s
Can’t be silent, words match my actions
If I say I’mma do it then I make it happen
When I hit that Boulevard girls get attracted (they watching)
’cause they see some black kings that’s out here to have them
We some young boss niggas that stay up on our job
So now we living like the mob, well enough
Like the President, that’s me and my squad
My niggas hustle hard, hard
[Outro]
I never fucked anybody over in my life
Didn’t have any cut, you got that? Time is gold, we gotta expand
The whole operation, Mr Brewster
New York, Chicago, L.A
We gotta set our own mark, and enforce it
[Verse 1]
We some young boss niggas that stay up on our job
So now we living like the mob
Like the President, that’s me and my squad, nigga
My niggas hustle hard, shine hard, cause I grind hard
Getting paid. Me I want what’s coming to me
What’s coming to me
The world and everything in it Ok? [Intro]
We short a coupla mil
I go on the street for it
Make a coupla moves
A mil here and there, no?

Hopsin – Tell’em Who You Got It From

This is Bobby callin’
Uh just touching basis with you
I want to know if everything okay with you
Because I been getting some family members callin’ me
And wonderin’ what is goin’ on with you and stuff
And I ain’t heard nothin’
And I know this can’t be over this baby
You know, and I don’t know why you mad and angry when it about somethin’ you did yourself
You gotta stop foolin’ with these old gals and shit
You know they out for money and stuff
And all these women are
[Verse 1]
Girl, you trippin’ and you know it
You think these issues that you got goin’ unnoticed
I smell some bullshit tonight, you the culprit
Bitch, I can read your motherfuckin’ mind like I wrote it
You swear you the baddest bitch alive (yeah, yeah)
I can see the madness in your eyes (yeah, yeah)
All your pain is packaged in disguise (yeah, yeah)
To your friends you yappin’ with the lies, I don’t mind
Feels like I don’t even know you
Girl, you ain’t got no clue what I’d go through for you
There ain’t much in this crazy world that I won’t do for you
But I don’t get the same love in return
It’s just a lesson learned, I’ll just let it burn, ’cause—
[Pre-Chorus]
I know
I don’t need you but you do need me, it shows
And bitch, I know
You just think I’m full of myself and broke
And bitch, I know
Go ‘head, just act like I’m dead and you don’t know me no mo’
It’s okay (okay)
‘Cause I know, I know, I know, I know
[Chorus]
I see you got some pain
Tell ’em who you got it from
I see you got a name
Tell ’em who you got it from
Show niggas your broken heart and
Tell ’em who you got it from
Tell everyone I did all this
Tell ’em all I’m the one you shouldn’t get involved with
I see you got some pain
Tell ’em who you got it from
I see you got a name
Tell ’em who you got it from
Show niggas your broken heart and
Tell ’em who you got it from
Tell everyone I did all this
Tell ’em all I’m the one you shouldn’t get involved with
[Verse 2]
I recall when we first met up
You had convinced me that you had your shit together
Back then all my homies said that you was just a set-up
My mind musta been gone
Damn, my momma taught me better
I just wanted you, baby
I don’t know what to do lately
It’s like I hate you and you hate me
And all this shit is too crazy for me
You got enough pride for the both of us
You can’t apologize, you don’t open up
I thought you would bride, would be close enough
I guess inside your mind you weren’t old enough
I look at you and think—
[Pre-Chorus]
I know
I don’t need you but you do need me, it shows
And bitch, I know
You just think I’m full of myself and broke
And bitch, I know
Go ‘head, just act like I’m dead and you don’t know me no mo’
It’s okay (okay)
‘Cause I know, I know, I know, I know
[Chorus]
I see you got some pain
Tell ’em who you got it from
I see you got a name
Tell ’em who you got it from
Show niggas your broken heart and
Tell ’em who you got it from
Tell everyone I did all this
Tell ’em all I’m the one you shouldn’t get involved with
I see you got some pain
Tell ’em who you got it from
I see you got a name
Tell ’em who you got it from
Show niggas your broken heart and
Tell ’em who you got it from
Tell everyone I did all this
Tell ’em all I’m the one you shouldn’t get involved with [Intro]
Hey, Marcus, how you doin’?
