one really great place, not mentioned here, is the beach! if you're near enough, this is a wonderful opportunity for your puppy/dog to experience many new and exciting sights, sounds, and best of all, smells! a walk along the shore, [where permitted of course!] can be tons of fun and great exercise, and watching your pup discover the water - chasing and trying to bite the waves, jumping and splashing and running - will absolutely makw you laugh and warm your heart! but, even if you or your doggie aren't "inot" the sand and water aspect, just walking the boards together can provide an exciting, interesting social scene, for both of you! tons of fun can be had at the beach by a doggie and his person!
