WriterAdministratorDate11/26/2018

 

As the thought about ‘Pets’ has changed a lot in Korea, it leads to a new phenomenon in today’s lifestyle and economy; Various neologisms like Petfam, ‘pet+family’ that refers to a person who regards pets as family, and Petconomy ‘pet + economy’ that stands for a big potential of Pet industry’s economic growth, explain it. Pet food markets, Pet care services like pet hotel, pet grooming, etc. have improved and the number of places including the restaurants, cafés that you can bring your pets has increased. However, we still have a long way to go in terms of what a real and sincere care about the pets is. First of all, not all the places that we can just ‘bring’ our pets could be for the pets. What they need is a place where they can run, play with the owners and other dogs and relax as much as they want. Here we have some places you can fully enjoy with your doggies in Gyeonggi-do.


Basic Pet Etiquette!

1. Walk your pup on a leash (Please check the rules of each place.)

2. Bring a waste bag and Clean up after your dog

3. Keep an eye on your dog at the park
