Dog days

The Barkleyville Dog Park opened last weekend on Feather River Drive in Stockton, and if you’re of the canine persuasion, it’s a pretty cool place to be. There are two large grassy areas for big and small dogs to romp around in and make new friends. Plastic bag dispensers are available for those necessary cleanups, and there is even a sculpture of giant dog collars for kids (or so-inclined dogs) to climb on.

There’s even an agility course for those dogs (and owners). Dogs can climb up and down ramps, jump through hoops and hop over hurdles.

Although some may be better at it than others.
