The city of Barberton is opening a new dog park this weekend. It's being integrated into Decker Park at Norton Avenue and 5th Street N.W. Mayor Bill Judge says the location is perfect.
"First, we had the land available there," said Judge. "It doesn't interfere with any of the other activities. It's off the highway near Norton (Avenue) and other main thoroughfares."
Judge says dogs and their owners are going to love it - if everyone follows a few rules.
"We want it to be safe, so not to bring small children and if you do, make sure you're attending to them as well," said Judge. "No choker chains and we ask that if your dog is aggressive while you are there, that you leave the park."
The mayor also says you should bring a baggie with you because nobody wants to step in something that your dog leaves behind.
