Show us your favorite off-leash dog park! (Please?)

Sometimes, a dog’s gotta run -- and in Southern California, where a large percentage of residents are apartment dwellers, many of them don’t have a fenced yard in which to stretch their legs. For many dog owners, the solution is one of the area’s many off-leash dog parks, where dogs can run and play to their hearts’ content (assuming they’re friendly with people and other animals).

Our own little guys are big fans of the large and grassy Redondo Beach dog park and Culver City’s The Boneyard. (Since the latter has a dirt surface and our dogs have a penchant for getting messy, we’d prefer to take them to the former, but it’s a bit of a trek for us.)

What are your favorite dog parks? We’d love you to show us by submitting a video that we can share with other readers. If you’re a YouTube user, showing us is easy -- just click the link below, which will guide you through submitting a video through your existing YouTube account. Once we’ve taken a look and approved it, your video will enter a queue that dog-loving readers can peruse to find the dog park that’s right for them. (If you don’t have a YouTube account, you’ll need to sign up for one in order to share your video with us.)
