Beau and Riley are among the pets stretching out in a new off-leash area for smaller dogs in Tirhatuan Park, Dandenong North.
The enclosued space is designed to allow small canines to exercise safely away from the popular off-leash area next door.
The park includes new water fountains, with seating and shelters to come.
