To be attentive to your dog(s) when visiting the park. Try not to conduct lengthy cell phone conversations; watch your dog when walking around the Park if the dog isn’t joining you; clean up after your dog; and please do not bring people food to the park!
Many dogs are leash reactive, lunging and barking at other dogs when on-leash. This park is an off-leash park, however, we recognize that dogs do need to be leashed from time to time, especially when entering and exiting. Please keep this in mind when visiting the park.
Save the Date!
June 13, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM for a work day. The mud should be gone, and we will be beautifying the park for summer. Please come help! Bring a shovel, rake or wheelbarrow, if you have one. The dog park will be closed to dogs during this time.
Poop Patrol Help Needed
One of the aspects of the park that makes it so great is the cleanliness. In order to keep our park clean, weare always looking for volunteers to donate 10 minutes of their time each week to change the bags in the 3 poop containers.
Here’s a list of best practice behaviors while in the park:
Always supervise your dog
Clean up after your dog and any other poop you happen to come upon
Remove your dog immediately if she’s playing too rough (Depending on the situation, you can try and take your dog to the other end of the park for a short break then bring her back for another chance to play nicely.)
Take your dog out of the park if he’s intimidating other dogs and/or people (Figuring out if your dog is being intimidating can be challenging. A good idea is to ask the people around you if they think your dog is being too forceful. We all need to be sensitive to the feelings of other dog owners.)
Correct your dog if she jumps on someone and please apologize to the human who now has paw prints on her clothes (Dogs can be messy - we shouldn’t expect to leave the dog park in the exact condition we were when we arrived.)
Try and give the dogs plenty of room if they are being rambunctious to avoid being knocked over
