Is your dog right for Bark at the Park?
Yes, if your dog:
- Is old enough to be around other dogs and people (at least six months old)
- Is up-to-date on all required vaccinations listed above
- Is in relatively good health and can walk up and down several flights of stairs
- Does well on a leash and is not overly aggressive toward other dogs
- Is friendly toward humans and not excessively fearful
- Is a Brewers fan!
Probably not, if your dog:
- Is still too young to mix with a big crowd (under six months old)
- Is a senior dog that would have trouble navigating stairs and being outside for an extended period of time
- Has aggressive tendencies toward other dogs or humans while on or off a leash
- Is exhibiting any signs of illness close to the day of the game (i.e. cough, nasal discharge, lethargy, diarrhea, etc.) because these symptoms can be signs of potentially infectious illnesses, so it would be best for your dog and other dogs if he or she does not attend
- Is a female dog in heat
- Older dogs, dogs with short muzzles, and/or dogs in general that are quickly prone to heat exhaustion should consider not attending this event or possibly plan on not staying for the entire game even though there will be cool water and shady spots, the direct sun and heat can be a deadly combination for dogs. Dogs cool themselves down by panting and are not nearly as efficient as we humans. Please keep the comfort and safety of your dog in the forefront of your mind when planning on this fun day at the park!
