In 2010 we attended the first #barkworld conference and learned that dogs can have their own #blogs. So the blog- theokdogblog was born.

We began sharing pictures and rating on all the dog parks we visited. We realized we loved planning trips to cities that had lots of dog friendly off leash parks. So began our mission to visit 100 dog parks, we hit that easy…the next goal was 250. And this past year we decided we wanted to try and hit 300 dog parks before the pups were too old to #travel or enjoy.
We are excited to say our 10 year old #Saint and 11 year old #Husky have reached the goal of 300 dog parks. We are not done yet. We still have three days left of our texas road trip and there are more on our list to visit.
I am very proud of what our #family has accomplished. I believe our #pups have enjoy ever #trip we’ve ever taken. I am thankful that we are able to give our pups the #luxury to travel and #explore.

Would have been rated higher but the swimming pond had a large drop off into the water, that made it hard for Koda and Ossian to climb back out of the water.Β  Would have been nice if it had a slow entrance.
