The dog park at Otto is one of the larger parks in Cincinnati. Separated in three sections, a fenced area for small pups and two larger areas, rotated when needed. On occasion, especially in spring, the river floods into the dog park, making it inaccessible. Please check online before visiting. Each area is very spacious and has water available.
For the city pups who love time on the turf, the dog park at Washington Park has several fun amenities including a water creek to play in. The fence is lined with benches for fur-parents to relax while their little ones socialize around large boulders and fresh fountains.
The double gates at Friends of Deeds Point are a favorite feature among dog owners attending the park. On muddy days, a paved centered circle keeps owners clean while their pups run about. Sections are split for small and large and include new fountains and bathrooms.
Please be aware, vaccination requirements may vary per daycare.

The trusted dog staff at AFPC offers boarding, grooming, training and play dates at their Clough pet center. Once doggies pass a temper test, they’re welcome to join the pet center family for play dates and boarding. AFPC has a large, attached pet store with a variety of shopping for your animal needs.
For small and medium sized dogs, Lucky Dog Daycare in Kettering is the place to be! With endless toys to play with, indoor and outdoor facilities and a daycare set up like a camp, pups and owners will love the socialization. Boarding is not available.
