I wish!!! There's an elementary school right around the corner from me with a big playground, and it's got a chain link fence around the entire property with "NO DOGS" signs prominently displayed. Since it's completely locked up during non-school hours it's a moot point - nobody can get in, dog or no dog. The most I've done there is to walk Halo up and down the steps outside the fence.Originally Posted By: 3K9MomAround here, enforcement is pretty lax, unless someone complains. So I can take my dogs into a fenced in baseball field at my local park for example.
Right next to that is a large rec center with playgrounds, a basketball court, and a baseball field. Again, prominent "NO DOGS" signs. I push it a little by walking up to the edge of the baseball field through the parking lot and doing some training next to the fence. I've done down stays and attention exercises during practices, worked on "leave it" with equipment bags, and played with Halo on the bleachers.
I've also used the walkways up to and around the building and worked next to the basketball court while kids are playing, but since I stay off the grass and don't actually go onto the court or the field, nobody has said anything to me about it. I'm pretty sure if I were to take my dogs out in the middle of the baseball field to throw a ball for them it would be noticed and I'd be told to leave, even if it wasn't being used at the time.
