Special Events

What Dog Park events do you want?

The City of Round Rock opened the Round Rock Dog Depot, the city's first dog park, within the city's Lake Creek Park on March 29. Now that the park is open, the City of Round Rock Parks and Recreation Department wants to know what kind of events you'd like to see at the dog park! We have some ideas, but we want your feedback.

Do you want a giant dog walk event? Barktoberfest? Yappy Happy Hours? Pet adoptions? Done Gone-it Microchip events?

Post your ideas and we'll compile a survey for you to vote on the best ideas.

The first thing that comes to mind is a doggie costume contest (probably has not been mentioned because it is almost cliche - but hey sometimes cliche is fun).

It might be fun to do a theme day. For example, the theme could be "Old West", so everyone brings their dogs out in old country garb. There could be some hay bales and maybe some little mini-facades for taking photos in front of...

Nothing too structured because some of our dogs (especially my dog, Steve Martin) just want to run wild and have a little fun.

I think it would be great to have a dog talent show held at the dog park. A few prizes and awards can be given away for the dogs with the best tricks.  

It's nice to be able to show off your dog and also see what other dogs are doing.  Pet owners can socialize and learn how to teach their dog new tricks.

My puppies are doggie park virgins, so I will have to give it a shot on a normal day before I could really give some good feedback on other ideas. I like all of the ideas presented, but I would DEFINITELY love to see a micro-chip event. Thanks! Shelly
