A few months ago, we attended a discussion group sponsored by The Stanton Foundation on dog parks here in Massachusetts.
For those who do not know, the Stanton Foundation was established by Dr. Frank Stanton to support several causes, including Canine Health and Welfare, and includes significant grants for the construction and continuance of dog parks in Massachusetts. They are the main source of funding that allowed us to build the Chelmsford Dog Park.
At the discussion, a summary of a study was presented.
