Introduction: The World Health Organization (WHO) argues that parasitic zoonotic diseases increase in people who come to recreational places such as public squares. Aim: To identify pathogenic parasitic forms to humans, in samples of dog feces collected from the ground in square of arms of the provincial capitals of the Bío Bío Region, Chile. Methods: 64 fecal samples from dogs (Canis lupus familiaris) in square of arms of the provincial capitals of the Bío Bío Region Chile, which were analyzed using the technique of Burrows were collected. Results: The 43,8% (28/64) of the samples analyzed were contaminated with some form parasitic zoonotic potential. Parasitic taxa with zoonotic risk, were Toxocara spp., Strongyloides spp., Ancylostoma spp., Giardia spp.. and Taenia spp., which is potentially hazardous to human health. Conclusion: Maybe fifty percent the samples from dogs collected from the square of arms, have dog's feces contaminated with some endoparasites with potential zoonotic, this is a risk to human health, so it is necessary to implement health education actions to the community.
