Destination Labrador Retriever Mississauga! Mississauga is an area where there are many things for a Labrador Retriever to explore. In particular there are eight leash free zones managed by a not for profit volunteer group for you to visit. Leash-Free Mississauga is a volunteer group who organizes events and educational programming for the public. Membership for Leash-Free Mississauga is $15 for one dog and $20 if you have more than one. Please be aware that if you walk more than four dogs at one time you need a leash walker permit available on their website www.mississauga.ca/portal/residents/parks-dog-walker This also limits you to walk a maximum of 8 dogs on a leash-free site. They mention that walkers not following the rules will be fined so be sure you have a look at their rules and requirements so you are within the rules. I understand, Labrador Retrievers count as people and not dogs, but the people in charge might not see it that way.
Parks listed are:
1. Union Park Dog Walk Area, 6627 Tenth Line West
2. Quenippenon Meadows, 5220 Erin Mills Parkway
3. Totoredaca park, Meadowvale Boulevard
4. Garnetwood Park, Burnhamthorpe Road E.
5. Etobicoke Valley Park, Dundas Street and Southcreek Road
6. Parkway Belt, Kennedy Road
7. Jack Darling Memorial Park, 1180 Lakeshore Road West
8. Lakeside Park, 2266 Lakeshore Road West.
Please remember that a new Labrador Retriever puppy and yes, one of our chocolate lab puppies in Mississauga, will need its shots prior to venturing out where there are other unfamiliar Labs and dogs. If you are going over to a friend's house and know their dog is up to date on all shots, then it shouldn't be a problem. However, venturing to an off leash dog park where you have no idea if the other dogs are up to date on shots such as distemper, leptospirosis, hepatitis, parvo, and parainfluenza (among others) or if they have worms such as heart worm or fleas and tics is not a good idea before your new Lab puppy is protected.
One of the coolest things that this club posts is the grass cutting schedule for each of the leash-free zones in Mississauga's parks. So instead of packing everyone up for a morning of running and then finding out they are cutting grass, you can plan to visit right after a fresh cut for your Labrador to retrieve. Sliced bread doesn't hold a candle to knowing the grass cutting schedule! For complete information please visit Leash-Free Mississauga's website here www.leashfreemississauga.ca
