As at any park, occasional accidents do happen, be it between disagreeable dogs or people. Fortunately, I haven’t witnessed many myself. I find it best to keep moving and not loiter around in any one spot for too long. No matter how well trained your dog is, it’s good to avoid bunching them up and to always keep an eye on your fur-buddy.
More than one dog has come back from a brief foray into the wetlands area coated in thick, black muck. More often than not, it’s one of the Labs. They seem to have a penchant for finding the mudholes, much to the consternation of their owners. Then it’s a mandatory trip to the water pump for a rinse before the car ride home and a good scrubbing—much to the chagrin of the dog.
