Dog Park


Parks in the Ogden area
Rules and etiquette are posted at the entrances

Ogden Dog Park near Fort Bueneventura (FB Group)


View Larger Map
Four separate gated areas; wilderness, small dog, big dog, and agility area. The agility area has goat head stickers but a Scout group laid down some wood chips late 2012 so it is still useable. There are two water spigots and several bag dispensers.

Dog Stuff

Food - Origen (dogfoodadvisor.com), a high-protein zero-grain food. Previously tried foods (in order) were Purina One Large Breed Puppy, Science Diet Adult Large Breed, Natures Recipe, Nutro Limited Ingredient, Acana Wild Prairie. Each was better than the last (less itchy/flaky skin). Get the Origen and Acana at The Animal Park near the 24th Street I-15 Freeway entrance in Ogden. Costco sells a popular low cost grain-free food too, Kirkland Natures Domain.

Toys - IQ Treat Ball filled with dog food. Ball rolls around and food comes out. Keeps dog busy for about 10 minutes.

Leashes - I went to one of my local outdoor/climbing shops and bought ten feet of rope and two carabiners. One locking for the collar side, and one regular to attach to the loop that is three feet from the human side so I can wrap it around my waist (hands free).

Collars - Dogtra IQ electric training collar/electric leash. Simple, small, and water-resistant remote. Small form, durable, and water-proof collar.

Training - Chris Krantz at K9 Leadership Training simple no non-sense training. Golden Spike Dog Obedience Club (FB Page) offers training classes and occasionally does the Canine Good Citizen exam

Coats - Chilly Dogs Great White North Winter Coat. Quality design, worth the price
  
Packs - I don't have one yet..

Car seat cover - Slovit Sta-Put Deluxe Hammock Pet Seat

Rattlesnake Vaccine - If you hike in the mountains, get it. Your vet will have it and it is less than $30. I also carry benadryl with me. http://rattlesnakevaccinefordogs.com/
