Does any one else drive their dog to the park?

I know it's lazy but I really hate walking!
Plus it takes a lot of effort to get two in the double pram or single pram with a skateboard and then don't forget the water and snacks, at least if I drive I can chuck these things in the car and then when the kids get whingy, I can jump in the in the car and be home in five minutes!

I used to before moving onto a larger block. Our house was at the top of an unpleasantly long, steep hill which made walking the 1/2 k home painful for me pushing the pram and for our arthritic labrador.

I know lots of dog owners who do because the dog park isn't anywhere near most people's houses.

Our preferred off leash area/big park is a 10min drive away, so yep, we do. We also separately do walks around our own neighbourhood, of course. Besides, the dogs love a car ride

We did because our preferred park was easier to get to by car. If we walked we would have had to cross a major road and the dog didn't really like traffic and would panic a bit

I do - my smaller, older dog loves marching around and exploring at the park - but if she had to walk there, she's be exhausted before she got there and miss out on all the fun. My other dog could run all day, so we just play fetch incessantly while lazy bum potters around happily.
My dogs also love the car so that part is a treat for them too.

Nope because the dog park is only a 10 min walk away, but I used to before we moved house as it was a drive away in the next suburb.

We do with the younger dog because it's a 10 min drive and she loves to swim in the river afterwards.
Older dog just gets walked around the neighbourhood and to another park because she is too old to jump up into the car now.
