Do you love dogs? If you do, there are plenty of people just like you. Besides The Rock, Miley Cyrus, and Lady Gaga, there are 60.2 million households in America that own approximately 89.7 million dogs. It seems like "man's best friend" isn't just man's best friend anymore.

A common thing in real estate is for home shoppers to search for homes in areas that have excellent schools. Today, since many people consider their dogs as a part of the family, more and more of them are searching for homes near dog parks and dog run parks. If you are one of them, I've made it much easier to search for properties near both types.

Dog run parks are parks with a dedicated fenced area for owners to exercise their dogs and let them roam without wearing leashes. However, unlike a Dog Park, a Dog Run Park doesn't have water facilities or dispensers or waste baskets.

Dog parks allow dogs to frolic and play and run free within a fenced-off area. They feature site furniture and equipment for dogs to play with and perform stunts. Additional features include shade structures, hosing stations, water fountains for both pets and owners, and ''Mutt Mitts'' or bag dispensers and waste baskets, so you can pick up after your dog.
