Mom's, Pop's and Pup's The newest offering in the Touhy Park schedule is a ten week on leash dog socialization program. The sessions are an hour long and offered every Monday at Touhy Park from 6 to 7 pm. Touhy Park is bordered by Clark street, between Chase and Jarvis. The program allows leashed dogs to meet and greet each other in a controlled environment, rather than the often helter skelter environment of our local dog parks. Interactive activities will be included, along with guest speaker appearances. This is a wonderful way to adress on leash socialization of a puppy or reinforce your adult dogs socialization skills. The price is right too. I was told the charge for the ten weeks was around $10, however I have not personally called the park to confirm this. To register or get more information, call April at (773) 262-6737. You can also show up on Monday nights to register or bring your dog to this Saturdays Earth Day festival, 11 am to 1 pm to register.
