Australia-wide Survey of Dog Parks

Dog park survey in australiaAustralia-Wide Dog Park Survey.

We need over 500+ completed surveys. We only have 225. Help us!

Fiona De Rosa from Balancing Act Adelaide is working with Dr Susan Hazel and Dr Lisel O’Dwyer from The University of Adelaide to conduct research into how people exercise their dogs, particularly in dog parks. The University has collected data on how dog parks are used in Adelaide, but now we want to find out about dog parks around Australia.

Please participate in our study. The online survey will  only take some 5-10 minutes to complete. You can access the survey online https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/WZ2X7KV

The results will provide a better understanding of dog parks around Australia, how dog parks are used, who uses them and what dog guardians most like about dog parks and would most like to change about them.

This data will help inform the planning, design and management of dog parks. This information will also compliment the recent Dog Park Guidelines we (Balancing Act Adelaide) developed for the Dog and Cat Management Board of South Australia. These Dog Park Guidelines are expected to be released by the end of 2013.

Thank you.
