Mighty Mutts was formed to create a group for owners of small and toy breed dogs. Their member's dogs range in weight from 3.5 lbs – 25 lbs.
To participate in Mighty Mutts, members must provide a City of Edmonton License for their dog along with copy of current vaccinations. Members must also read and sign our General Rules, Code of Conduct and Aggressive Dog Policy and Indemnity Release.
Benefits of Off-Leash Areas in our Urban Communities
- Our members believe that there needs to be more provision in our urban environment of places where people can play with their dogs off-leash.
- Off leash areas provide space where people can train their dogs as well as take their dogs to socialize with other dogs.
- Responsible dog owners know that dogs in urban environments must have daily off-leash exercise and opportunities to interact with other dogs and with new people. Dogs that experience this are healthier and show less aggressive and anti-social behavior towards humans and other dogs.
- Off-leash areas are important not only to dog owners, but also to the community at large.
- Shared parks provide places where neighbors can meet and interact and develop a sense of community.
- Many people who are not able to keep a pet enjoy the opportunity to see dogs at play. Also, off-leash areas offer adults the opportunity to teach children how to safely interact with dogs. As well, there are obvious health and physical benefits for the dog owners who are being active in an outdoor environment.
