EASTLAKE, Ohio - No one was more surprised then Dennis Flynn when Shiloh, his 1-year-old Husky, just waltzed to top of the new dog walk ramp at the Eastlake Dog Park inside Woodland Park on Thursday. “This is his first time!” Flynn said.

While waiting for other canine playmates to show up, Shiloh casually walked to the top for a better view. Shiloh is usually so busy playing with the other dogs, Flynn said, that he forgets to explore the new dog agility equipment.

The off-leash dog park, at 35900 Lakeshore Boulevard, got a major upgrade with new agility course equipment including a crawl tunnel, an elevated dog walk ramp, a hoop jump and an adjustable bar jump.

Thanks to a PetSafe Bark for Your Park Grant, the park received $5,000 worth of commercial-grade dog park equipment from UltraSite. PetSafe selected 25 cities across the country, with Eastlake being one of 10 cities to receive a park upgrade. The other cities received grants for new dog parks or for park maintenance.
