Enjoying Portland Parks with Pets
Dogs (and their owners!) are among the most active and enthusiastic visitors to Portland's parks, trails and natural areas. Dog owners keep parks safe, healthy and enjoyable for their pets, other pets, and all park visitors by:
Obeying leash and scoop laws
Knowing and following the off-leash area rules
Practicing good "petiquette." Our Petiquette for Parks guide (PDF) helps dog owners have the best park experience possible, and includes dog behavior basics, owner to-dos, and ways to get involved at your local OLA.
Protecting the health of pets. Portland Parks & Recreation and the Portland Veterinary Medical Association partnered to develop Pet Health for Parks (PDF), a guide to keeping your dog healthy for park play.
Protecting the health of park land and wildlife. Learn more about Dogs for the Environment.
