dc.description.abstract Dogs are increasingly common in the urban landscape, yet little is known about their spatial and functional patterns. A short survey was conducted to determine: the average travel distance of off-leash dog park users in the Halifax, Canada region; their mode of transit; their reasons for choosing the off-leash park; and whether they accomplish any other tasks on their journey. Results show that off-leash park users travel an average of 5559 m oneway, producing between 431 and 579 kg CO2 per year; however, there is a difference between urban and suburban park users travel habits, with urban users typically walking more and traveling shorter distances than their suburban counterparts. Off-leash capability and proximity are the most common reasons for park choice in Halifax and people are more likely to make the trip to the off-leash park a single destination trip than completing multiple errands. en_CA
