Here’s some good news for pet dogs and their owners in Pune. The Pune Smart City Development Corporation Ltd (PSCDCL) has plans to set up a first-of-its-kind park for pets, in Baner, where pet dogs and dog owners will get a chance to spend many a leisurely day together.
“The park has been planned under the placemaking site on various themes… it is a dedicated space for pets and pet owners,” said a PSCDCL official.
The park will be designed as a wide space where the canines will be able to play, have fun, and mingle with other dogs, said the official. The park will also have various equipment for dogs to play with, such as a jumping ring a dog tunnel and weave pole.
“The park will also have a cafe, clinic, parlour and shop, exclusively for pets. It will have pet agility equipment, cafe benches for pets and water outlets especially designed for them,” said the official.
The park, spread over 751.43 sq metre area in Baner, will be developed at an estimated cost of Rs 81.35 lakh.
Dogs are certainly one of the best animals to be kept as pets. But we shouldn’t adopt a dog just to fill up our Instagram and Twitter feeds for likes. No, instead we should love them like they love us and take every necessary step for their well-being. As dog parks are scarce in India, every city should now take Pune’s example and attempt to put more smiles on those cute puppies.
