Would Somebody please think about the Dogs? OK, so I got an idea a few weeks ago when I was door knocking looking for some Short Sales in South Gate, Ca. I noticed that every single dog I saw behindÂ a fenceÂ was very aggressive. It seemed like they all wanted to attack. I have owned aÂ few dogs through my years and I noticed a big change with my current four legged friend. Since he was a puppy I took him to the dog park and dog beach out in Long Beach. He learned how toÂ socialize with other dogs and most importantly how toÂ Â respect other people. Since there aren't any activities for dogs here in South Gate, Where are we supposed to take our little friends? Our neighbor city, as well has a small section of one their parks dedicated for the dogs.. I think we are missing this in our city. We have 2 major parks, South Gate park andÂ Hollydale Park.Â (People don't know this but there are even sections for Horses in Hollydale). Â We also have the little "parks" along Southern. I'm sure we could squeeze in someÂ gates for our "best friends". I lived in Long Beach for about 4 years and I noticed Dog Parks/beach are a great way to meet new people and get your dogs a good workout. A tired dog is a Good dog. I learned a lot from living there, AllÂ down 2nd st. there are dog bowls outside of every single store/restaurant. People are encouraged to walk their pets and take them to the beach.
Â A new dog park would be a great way to bring this community closer. We could have events and special training. There could be dog b-day parties there and I'm sure some Networking as well. WeÂ Have to start when our dogs are puppies because its hard (but possible)Â to teach a old dog new tricks. South Gate has done a lot of new and exciting things to the city, like our Soccer center at South Gate park and the batting cages. They haveÂ set up some "parks" along southern with swing sets for our kids.Â To a lot of people, their pets are a major part of their family. Its Time to start to take them into consideration.http://www.facebook.com/WhatsHappeningInSouthGate
