Dog Park Safety For You & Your Dog (Mandatory for new Bark Park Members!)
To make our Bark Park as successful as possible, all new Paw Pass holders must attend one of our Bark Park educational seminars. If you are thinking about joining the park, we invite you to attend one of these seminars in 2012. During these 90 minute seminars, a certified trainer will review how the dog park works and, by educating the owners in dog behaviors, we hope to reduce the number of problems. Owners will learn "Pet Etiquette", pet and people safety, socialization tips, basic obedience. Q&A and handouts will be provided. Class size is limited; no pets please. Click here to sign up.
