ParknPool Partners with DogiPot to Help Improve Dog Parks Nationwide

DogiPot Pet Waste Station

Lexington, VA (PRWEB) February 29, 2012

ParknPool is proud to announce their partnership with DogiPot, a United States manufacturer of pet waste disposal products. This partnership allows ParknPool to provide proper pet waste solutions to clients nationwide, to solve pet waste disposal issues, and to help improve dog parks, nationwide.

As a county in Alabama recently found (, dog parks are fast becoming the new place for people and pets alike to socialize and enjoy the outdoors. They offer pet owners a safe, outdoor environment to enjoy with their dogs, and they offer dogs grass to run in and fresh air to breathe that is not always easy to find, especially in larger cities. However, with the rise in popularity, issues from the proper disposal of pet waste are also on the rise, as a community in Washington State recently realized (

In Shelby County, Alabama, a new dog park is being created with the hope of changing lives in the community (Shelby County Reporter). This park, made possible by winnings from a contest entered by the director of the Shelby County Humane Society, will feature several paths, as well as playground equipment and fields for dogs. It is designed as a place for dogs, their owners, and other community members alike to get outdoors and spend some time socializing and exercising. Advocates of the park are hopeful it will also benefit more than just dogs and their owners; they predict that the dog park will generate business for the stores in the surrounding area, thus improving the local economy, as well.

While dog parks seem to be a pleasant, positive addition to communities, there has been some negative feedback associated with them. Sunrise Park in Olympia, Washington, a park which allows dogs to be unleashed as long as they are well-behaved and obey their owners, is receiving some criticism surrounding management issues ( Neighbors of the park have lodged a myriad of complaints. Some cited reasons such as owners allowing their dogs to run out of their sight and using vulgar language, as well as incessant barking and dog waste not being properly disposed of. This park is very popular with dog owners, but is at risk for being closed if these issues are not resolved.

Monitoring dogs more closely and taking care to be considerate to others in the area are two very easy solutions to noise complaints. Pet waste stations are a smart, economical way to resolve dog waste issues. Instead of relying on volunteers to supply plastic bags for disposal, these stations could be placed at the entrance to the park so that owners have easy access to the bags, as well as a place to throw them away after they are used.

Dog parks offer many benefits to community members as well as pets. Making a few simple changes or implementing good behavioral procedures from the beginning are ways to ensure that these parks are a part of city life for years to come.

ParknPool, an online distributor of outdoor site amenities, offers a selection of top quality DogiPot pet waste disposal products. These pet stations are designed to meet the needs of dog parks, as well as any outdoor space where dogs and their owners frequent.

ParknPool is a Veteran Owned SBE/WBE Company and is the leading online supplier of commercial grade furniture and site amenities such as picnic tables, trash receptacles, park benches, bleachers and restaurant furniture. ParknPool was begun in 1998 in Orlando, FL and moved their headquarters to Lexington, VA in 2005.
