Converting dump-yard, Telangana government builds country's first dog park

Pet lovers in Hyderabad have a reason to celebrate as the city is set to get country's first dog park near Radisson Hotel, Kondapur.

To be inaugurated within a week, the park is spread across a sprawling area of 1.3 acres and cost the Telangana government a whopping Rs. 1.1cr.

Notably, the government converted a small, barren dump-yard to make this park.

The park will apparently be built as per international standards and will have certification from the Kennel Club of India, the leading authority on registration on purebreds.

It will have an exclusive area where the dogs can play. There will also be a training center where professionals can train the pets, said Rajendra Kumar of Urban Biodiversity Wing of Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC).

Facilities

Park to have provision for specially-abled and their dog helpers

The other facilities will be an amphitheater, separate enclosures for big and small dogs and bone-shaped benches where their human partners can sit.

There will also be a provision for the specially-abled and their dog helpers to exercise and enjoy, without the risk of mishaps.

"It also has a dog splash pool and a clinic with veterinarians for medical needs of dogs," added Rajendra.

The park is also open to regular visitors, for whom there will be a "separate walkway and benches."

Apparently the brainchild of D Harichandana, GHMC zonal commissioner, the park took six months to build.

She thought of this because "pets aren't allowed in regular parks" and also because India doesn't have an exclusive pet park, which is pretty common in countries like UK, Spain.
