    Avoid this place if you're allergic to dogs. Because there are a lot of them. And they're friendly and will want to lick your face.

    Leave little kids at home. It's for their safety. If you simply can't, teach them to not run around and scare the dogs. It's a dog park, not a children's playground.

    If your dog attacks and injures another dog, you are responsible for their vet bills according to park rules, and New York State law. Don't be a jerk and refuse to pay up!

    Shit happens dog kerfuffle tip: push dogs together to get them apart - do not pull! And do not run or scream to a dog fight.

    Avoid at all costs if it has rained recently. The bigger "baseball field" area of McCarren park is dog friend before 9am on weekdays.

    If your dog gets into a fight at the park and is the offending party, leave the park or else it could escalate!

    The smaller run is usually empty, making it a great place to bring your more aggressive pup and let it run off-leash.

    A combination of a gladiatorial arena and rikers island exercise yard. Your dog will love it.

    Proper dog park etiquette means keeping one gate closed at all times. If both are open, dogs could get out.

    Your dog is not a toy. Don't come here and just hold your dog the whole time.

    Don't bring your dog's favorite ball or toy. The park will eat it up.

    Very nice change from the one by our apt. But the dogs can get pretty dirty from rolling around in the dirt

    Lay down on the main bench across from the gate and look up. The hole in the trees to the sky is in the shape of a sitting dog.

    There are containers for bags in both small and big dog parks, there's a plastic container filled with water bottles in the big dog park and water bowls. If you get around to it, fill water bottles.

    Don't wear flip flops. This has a dog park has a dirt/bark surface and is dirty dirty! Not as bad as Madison Square Park dog run, but close.
