    Does anyone use the dog parks that are starting to pop up at truck stops? If so what are your thoughts about them?

    Small fenced areas. If you want to let dog off leash then its handy. Personally i just walk the dog. And thats what i see most people do. Since fenced area is not really big enough for much exercise

    I know most of the Love’s dog areas are not cleaned. That’s where it becomes a problem.

    Every time I've seen one these so-called dog parks, it's just a place for truckers to let their dog take a crap and leave it there.

    That’s pretty much every “dog park”. People are lazy pigs.

    Dog parks are a great way to expose your dog to all kinds of illness.
    Try again (with your so-called Fortune 500 project, lol )

    I would say the best dog park is the one at the Wyoming Welcome Center just south of Cheyenne on 25 before it intersects with 80. It's a good size for the dogs to run. Most of the others are just poop pens.

    Farms and ranches are for dogs, not truck stops.

    Leave Fido at home.

    I never use a dog park at a truckstop. Most drivers are slobs who don’t pick up after themselves so there’s no chance they’ll clean up after their dog.

    If we come across one that isn't full of crap we let our dog loose. Most of the time we walk him on leash and pick up what he leaves behind.
     
    Tb0n3 Thanks this.
