New pups hit the dog park; owners are nervous wrecks

Dogs and their owners play in Prospect Park’s Long Meadow during off-leash hours, Sunday, Jan. 31, 2021, in the Brooklyn borough of New York. Go to any dog park right now and you’ll probably find lively pandemic puppies, along with new owners learning the ins and outs of off-leash play. One of the silver linings of the pandemic is that many people are discovering the joys of dog ownership.
