Gaby Popper Dog Training Montreal made a list of the best dog parks in the West Island where to take your dog for a walk. Exercising your dog is just as important as exercise for a person. Health benefits range widely, but include reducing stress, helping hip joints, keeping your dog at a healthy weight and reducing digestive problems, which decreases the likelihood of developing other health problems.

  1. Beaconsfield dog runAddress: 521 Elm Ave, Beaconsfield, QC H9W 6E4

The first dog run in Beaconsfield. Located in the Luger Triangle, adjacent to Angell Woods, equivalent to 1.5 football fields includes a section for small dogs (height less than 35 cm) and one for large dogs.

2) Terra Cotta Park

Address: 100 Terra-Cotta Ave, Pointe-Claire, QC H9R 5A4.

Pointe-Claire has expanded its dog run at Terra Cotta Park so people can let their pets run free.The run is now 600 square metres longer. The recent construction connects Maywood Avenue to the dog park, so more people can easily access the area. The extension comes just after a judge ruled that the Angell Woods green space is off-limits to dog walkers because it’s private land.

This is a very pleasant park, more like a forest, with six great hiking trails most of which are covered with cedar chips. This is a great location for practicing your dog training skills without been interrupted by other pets.
