Dogs have it pretty good in the GLBR.

Dog owners in the Great Lakes Bay Region sure are lucky to have their choice of dog parks. Listed are a few options that your fur-ever friend can enjoy this season. The Steven A. Kirshenbaum Memorial Bark Park is located within Imerman Memorial Park (3495 Midland Rd, Saginaw Township). You can venture even farther with your four-legged pal (on a leash) and take a walk along the Tittabawassee River. Return during Wednesdays in July for themed gatherings during the Dog Days of Summer. At Bay County Central Bark Park (800 Livingston St, Bay City), dogs can enjoy a large, fenced-in area with tunnels, jumps, and weave poles—all constructed to meet the United States Dog Agility Association standards. The Midland Dog Park is located within Chippewasse Park (101 Golfside Dr, Midland) and has a combination of wooded and open areas where dogs can run and play. All parks provide separate areas for large and small dogs to play, water sources, and waste receptacles. All parks close at dusk. Don’t forget: Humans are responsible for controlling their own canines, and should be courteous and pick up after them. On May 27 and 28 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., bring your pup to the Frankenmuth Dog Bowl at the River Place shops (925 S Main St, Frankenmuth). The admission is free (which is convenient, because dogs don’t have wallets), and even if you don’t have your own Fido, you can still enjoy the day. Watch in “aww-e” as over 100 dogs compete in the high-energy, competitive events that showcase running, jumping, diving, and retrieving. There will also be a best costume contest, a fashion show, disc golf competitions, and more. It’s sure to be a tail-wagging good time. This year, I’ll be at the Dog Bowl with my Yorkshire terrier, Presley, and will try to not stop and meet every dog that I see.
