We all need a Scout!!

Share it!

Scout is a beautiful goldendoodle who will run loops around anyone standing still. She is a perfect example that a really well socialized dog. This is why dogs need a place to play with each other, to learn to be gentile, to learn to communicate with dogs and people, and to feel a part of a community. A community that is the Canine Insurgency.

Doggie Paradise

Share it

Riverdale Park’s off leash area, located at the very end of Carlton Street, is a virtual dog paradise. The field is large, open and away from any roads or danger. On Sundays the park is over-run with ball play where 4 or more dogs enjoy the chase. The area is actually a mixed use field for baseball, cricket and the occasional soccer or ultimate frisbee match. If the doggers had there way there would only be baseball and ultimate games in the space as the players of those sports tend to like dogs and even bring dogs along for the outing. The Insurgency applauds the Riverdale Off-leash area as a great first step in a comprehensive dog management strategy, but many more similar spaces need to be created to accommodate the growing population of dogs in Toronto.
