To maintain a safe play environment, any dog that misbehaves will be disciplined with a time-out from the group play area. Additionally, because excessive barking can escalate the intensity of the pack dynamic, we reserve the right to use squirt bottles, shaker cans, a garden hose, whistle, and noise cans if we feel it is necessary to disrupt the barking cycle.
It is important that you understand that your dog will participate in supervised off-leash socialization and interaction. Our canine guests get approximately 11 hours of play time and have access to 3/4th of an acre of fenced yard in Charlotte, North Carolina. They are allowed to romp, run, play, canoodle, swim, and sleep at their leisure.
Dogs can sometimes be unpredictable in their behaviors, so it is important that as an owner, you are aware of the risks involved in such play, and assume all risks. Accidents can happen from time to time and could include a cut paw or scraped leg from free play with other dogs, or an injury from general romping outdoors. You must understand that 11 hours of free time is different from life at home. While here, dogs run and play hard, scrape their paws, pick up sticks, chew on twigs, eat grass, and participate in all manner of natural outdoor canine activities.
