Sandy, a volunteer foster parent at Companion Pet Rescue & Transport in Connecticut (, took a video of Lucy to show us just how happy she was to run free her fist time off a leash. The dog park was installed by Pet Playgrounds in Sandy’s backyard. Pet Playgrounds offers the most affordable and most effective way to contain your dog or dogs. Here’s what Sandy had to say about Lucy’s experience:

We have a great dane/hound mix that just came into our rescue, named Lucy. We brought her to an adoption event Sunday but she was not settled down ’cause she just needed to get some energy out and to just run. It was suggested to bring her down the street to the dog park to let her run a little. Having personally just met Lucy the day before, I was a little leery of how she was going to behave with other dogs, and how they would behave with her, and not wanting to be responsible for something not going well, I took her five minutes further away, to my dog park! So, this is the video of her going off leash for the first time under our watch. She also met my pups for the first time… in a nice safe environment.
