Oakland County Parks and Recreation is proud to announce the grand opening of Red Oaks Dog Park’s eight-piece agility course donated by the Nutro Company.
The Nutro Company, a manufacturer of natural pet food products owned by Mars Incorporated, will host the second annual Room to Run Day on May 7 from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. at Red Oaks Dog Park. The company is donating dog park equipment to 35 parks nationwide.
“We are committed to enhancing natural environments for pets where we work and live,” said Anthony Quinn, the Nurtro Company territory manager.
The agility course will include a seven-foot ramp for dogs to climb up and down, tunnels, a see-saw, a tire jump, jump bars and weave poles.
Cassie Brough, Red Oaks Dog Park supervisor, said this will be a great addition to the Red Oaks Dog Park, which opened last July.
“This is a big thing for a lot of dog owners. There are national competitions for dog agility, and the dogs will be able to train here,” Brough said. “This will give dogs and their owners a different experience at the dog park, in addition to the usual off-leash frolicking.”
The grand opening will take place in the Mutt Hutt Pavilion at the dog park. Dogs will receive free samples of Nutro dog food, and owners will receive dog food coupons.
Red Oaks Dog Park is located at 3153 Dequindre Road in Madison Heights.
