Every dog needs the freedom to exercise and socialise with others. That’s why we provide five designated off-leash areas where your dog can run and play safely without endangering or annoying other people.
Remember: even in an off-leash area you have a responsibility to keep your dog under control at all times.
Where to find Albury’s off-leash areas
Exercise with your dog too
Off-leash areas are great but often what your dog really wants and needs is regular walks by your side. Dogs are social, pack animals and get a lot of security and enjoyment from following their pack leader – you! So don’t underestimate the importance of lead walks for your dog’s and your own mental and physical health.
Some dogs need more to do
Various types and temperaments of dogs need more challenging exercise.
Some dogs are the product of hundreds of years of breeding as working animals and can get bored and anxious if you don’t give them ‘work’ to do. Others are bred for hunting and need a safe outlet for their instincts to track and chase. Others are just extra-intelligent or highly energetic and need to be mentally or physically challenged.
Albury has a number of groups that run different types of obedience and agility training to meet these needs.
