Owners are legally responsible for their dogs and any injuries caused by them. We have included the St. Joseph Dog Park Rules for you to go over before using the park.
Owners are legally responsible for their dogs and any injuries caused by them.
Puppies and dogs must be properly inoculated, be healthy ( have no contagious conditions or disease), be parasite free (both internally and externally).
To help prevent dogfights, owners are encouraged to inquire about any dogs already in the run, which are unfamiliar to them, prior to entering the run. Observing dogs' body language is also recommended.
Known aggressive dogs are not allowed in the park and dogs that show aggressive behavior while in the park must be removed immediately.
No dogs in heat may enter the run at any time.
Owners must clean up after their dogs.
Owners are asked to closely supervise their dogs, and at no time should an owner leave the run without their dog(s).
Owners should discourage their dogs from barking excessively. This is especially important prior to 10 AM and after 9 PM.
Parents must refrain from bringing toddlers and small children into the run. Parents are strongly discouraged from bringing children less than 12 years of age. Children should at no time be allowed to run with or chase after dogs in a dog run.
Do not bring rawhide or food into the dog run as dog fights may result.
For safety reasons, please remove pinch (prong) and spike collars from your dog prior to entering the dog run. Many dogs and puppies have been injured by playing with another dog that was wearing a pinch collar. A basic flat buckle collar (with license, rabies and identification tags) is Recommended.
St Joseph is very dog friendly. We hope that you and your dog will take the time to enjoy this great park.
