"Third Place" And The Place For Walking: Systematic Approach To Solving Problems


Changed attitudes towards pets and an increase in the number of companion dogs among urban residents came into conflict with the lack of infrastructure that can meet the increased need for dog walking areas. The analysis shows that a part of potentially applicable territories can be formalized in a format comparable to the "third places" with their appropriate content - objects, services, an atmosphere of a comfortable environment for the interaction of participants in accordance with their established interests. The emerging public demand for solving the problem of the shortage of such territories, as well as simpler ones, in places of walking accessibility, has incorporated a complex set of issues (environmental and sanitary safety, psychological comfort, the educational aspect of communicating with pets, the welfare of the animals themselves, and a number of others). The analysis was carried out by the system-parametric method of identifying three groups of factors indicating the systematic nature of the situation under study. Detailed detailing made it possible to identify the multidimensional essence of the problem, indicating a high level of complexity, and therefore its solution requires an interdisciplinary approach and expanding the composition of participants in such social interaction in order to remove the economic, managerial and social restrictions imposed on the system.
