Simi Valley and Moorpark dog park tips

Follow the rules! Typical dog park rules include:

  • Dogs must be spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccines and shots, and supervised at all times.
  • Clean up after your pooch! No one wants to step in that mess.
  • Know your dog: If you have a dog that has shown aggression toward other animals, children, or adults, it's best to leave them at home.
  • Taking your kids? Supervise them closely! Let them know that running and loud play aren't a good idea around dogs they don't know well, and teach them how to approach a dog to pet it.
  • Don't bring your lunch. It only invites begging and aggressive behaviors.
  • Be polite and considerate of other park users. Common sense prevails!
