Friends of Kent Island Dog Park is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization of volunteers who work in partnership with the Queen Anne’s County Parks Department to help maintain and improve the Island Dog Park by raising money for special projects and keeping the park clean, safe and functional.
There are a lot of benefits associated with dog parks. Dog parks are an excellent venue to exercise and socialize dogs. A well-exercised, socialized dog is a happy dog that is less prone to aggression and undesired or destructive behavior. Additionally dog parks are a great place for senior citizens and the physically disabled to easily exercise their dogs.
