It's not yet known when or where, but it looks like Guelph will be getting two fenced-in dog parks later this year.

At Wednesday's capital budget discussions Ward 6 councillor Dominique O'Rourke asked city staff why the city's 10-year capital budget forecast didn't include a dog park.

Parks and recreation general manager Heather Flaherty told O'Rourke that in April staff will be presenting a report recommending two fenced-in dog parks for Guelph and that the money for those parks already exists.

Dog lovers in Guelph have been calling for a fenced-in dog park for a long time. A Facebook page dedicated to the issue has been up and running for over three years.
