Spring is here and it’s time to catch up on all the exercise your canine missed out on this winter — which is why we’re so excited that Rosedale Center‘s indoor dog-walking has been extended year-round!

Well-behaved puppers can walk on leash there every Sunday morning from 9-11 am. (You’ll have to skedaddle when the mall’s stores open at 11am on Sundays.)

Woof to the wise: Be respectful of others’ space by using a standard, non-retractable leash. And if your dog happens to have an accident, doo clean it up right away!

    I attended last Sunday for the first time from 10-11. I tenderly spoke with 5 people on retractable leads and asked them next time to bring a leash. Thanks for reporting the rules as I’d hate for there to be an incident and spoil this wonderful opportunity. Many thanks, Later, love, Lisa

      So Lisa
      I agree with the retractable leash comments. What do you think about using the mall to work on leash aggression.

        Do you really think that’s FAIR to everyone else that has a well behaved dog?!? Take a class with a professional dog trainer, DO NOT subject innocent people and dogs to this…’s a sure fire way to have Rosedale cancel dog walking! Dog owners MUST exercise good common sense!

    Question – do we have to use a certain entrance to do this?

    • Mandy on February 17, 2018 at 9:33 pm

      My understanding is any mall entrance. No entrance through stores like Macy’s.

    We were so impressed. There were so many dogs! Our pooch is working on being leash aggressive so we truly appreciated the people who just kept walkkng. There were hundreds of dogs this past Sunday. The Mall had security people there, Some shops handed out doggie treats and water. We will go back. I would really like to know how to thank the mall management. Do any of you know?

      As a veterinary behaviorist- using the mall to work on your dog’s leash aggressive is completely inappropriate for not only your dog but for the other dogs that have to encounter any negative responses from your dog.

    We’re moving soon from an apartment building where there are plenty of dogs to house and I’m afraid my puppy will get lonely for other dogs so this would be nice.
