Hyderabad: Billed as the countrys first, an exclusive and certified 'Dog Park' boasting of facilities including a walking track, off leash areas and a clinic is all set for inauguration at Kondapur here.

Spread over 1.3 acres, the park has been developed by the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) at a cost of Rs 1.1 crore on a site which was earlier a dump yard. It also has dog training and exercise equipment, splash pool, two lawns, an amphitheatre, loo cafe, separate enclosures for big and small dogs among other facilities, a senior GHMC official said.

"This is the countrys first exclusive and first certified Dog Park. There will also be a Vet on site apart from dog trainer, protocols for cleaning as per standards and free vaccination will be administered (to the pets)", GHMC Zonal Commissioner D Harichandana told PTI.

Harichandana, a dog lover himself, said she had seen similar dog parks abroad and thought why not have such an international standard park here. "We called up the landscape designers, pet consultants and put in place proper equipment. We developed this park over the past one year," she said.

According to a survey, there are about 2.5 lakh pet owners in the West Zone and the Central Zone limits of the city which are nearer to the park. Officials said public can bring in their pet dogs and use the facilities in the park.

There have been representations from public about dogs being not allowed in general parks, they said. Depending on the success of this park, the GHMC has plans to put up one more park in the eastern part of the city, Harichandana said adding "as of now it is an exclusive dog park and we might have a cat corner."

The park would be inaugurated within next ten days, she said. Telangana's Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister K T Rama Rao last week tweeted "The first park in India developed to international standards for pets & pet parents & certified by Kennel Club of India."

He had also said a small dump yard had been converted into the park at a cost of Rs 1.1 crore.
