The Hyderabad city is set to get country's first dog park for pet lovers near Radisson Hotel, Kondapur. To be inaugurated within a week, the park is spread across a sprawling area of 1.3 acres and costs the Telangana government a whopping Rs. 1.1cr. To make this park, the government converted a small, barren dump-yard. The park will apparently be built as per international standards and will have certification from the Kennel Club of India, the leading authority on registration on purebreds. The dogs will have an exclusive area to play. There will also be a training center where professionals can train the pets. The other facilities will be an amphitheater, separate enclosures for big and small dogs and bone-shaped benches where their human partners can sit. There will also be a provision for the specially-abled and their dog helpers to exercise and enjoy, without the risk of mishaps. It also has a dog splash pool and a clinic with veterinarians for medical needs of dogs. The park is also open to regular visitors, for whom there will be a "separate walkway and benches." The park took six months to build. They thought of this because "pets aren't allowed in regular parks" and also because India doesn't have an exclusive pet park, which is pretty common in countries like the UK, Spain.
