Paso Nogal Dog Park | 501 Paso Nogal Rd, Pleasant Hill, CA 94523, United States

Paso Nogal Dog Park is a perfect place for all dog lovers to enjoy the many amenities that Pleasant Hill, California has to offer. From two fully fenced play spaces with trails and hills in between them or 63 acres of hiking paths, Paso Nogal Dog Park offers something for everyone who loves dogs! Some visitors do note that the small dog section is very limited so it tends not be as well used by larger breeds but they also mention how spacious lots are reserved exclusively just for large breed use – evidently these sections have been designed specifically because off-leash activity encourages socialization amongst friends old and new.

The Paso Nogal Dog Park and Paso Nogal Park properties are described as incredibly beautiful, tranquil, and picturesque. The trails offer views of breathtaking landscapes which inspire feelings of relaxation and refreshment. There is plenty to do for the owners with almost two acres worth of space dedicated solely to their dogs; this includes a well-manicured green grid where pups can run around with no worries about sore joints in an environment that feels like they never left home!

Visitors to Paso Nogal Dog Park do note that the area is replete with large snakes at the mouth of many of the trails. Owners should take care that they do not disturb them and inadvertently end up bitten. Dogs enjoying the play areas must be up to date on all vaccinations and registered with their city. Tags must be worn on their collars which prominently display this information. For a relaxing day in a beautiful California park, plan a trip to Paso Nogal Dog Park!

5 Essential Dog Commands


1. The Sit Command

Teaching your dog to sit is one of the most basic dog commands to teach your pup, thus making it a great one to start with. A dog who knows the “Sit” command will be much calmer and easier to control than dogs who aren’t taught this simple command. Additionally, the “Sit” command prepares your dog for harder commands such as “Stay” and “Come.”

2. The Down Command

This command is one of the more difficult dog training commands to teach. The reason it may be hard for your dog to master this command is that it requires him to be in a submissive posture. You can help out your dog by keeping training positive and relaxed, especially if your dog is fearful or anxious. Also keep in mind to always praise your dog once he successfully follows the command.

3. The Stay Command

Similar to the “Sit” command, the “Stay” cue will help make your dog easier to control. This command can be helpful in a number of situations such as those times you want your dog out of the way as you tend to do household chores or when you don’t want your pup overwhelming guests.

Before attempting to teach your dog this command, make sure your dog is an expert at the “Sit” cue. If he hasn’t quite mastered the “Sit” command, take the time to practice it with him before moving on to the “Stay” cue.

4. The Come command

Another important command for your dog to learn is the word “come.” This command is extremely helpful for those times you lose grip on the leash or accidentally leave the front door open. Once again, this command is easy to teach and will help keep your dog out of trouble.

5. Leave it command.

This last command can help keep your dog safe when his curiosity gets the better of him such as those times when he smells something intriguing but possibly dangerous on the ground. The goal is to teach your pup that he gets something even better for ignoring the other item.
