  • Dogs must be kept on leash on your way to the building and inside the bar area. Once indoor and inside the gated areas they may be freed!

  • Masks required. Social distancing required. Humans, once in the Play Park please stay on the perimeter whether indoors or outdoors to allow for greater distancing. 

  • You must keep an eye on your dog and be in control of them at all times. It's tempting to let your dog play while you tune out BUT your dog is your responsibility. Keeping your eye on your dog will help keep them playing safe.

  • You must clean up after your dog. Let's be real, pee and poop happen. We just ask that you clean up after them so that everyone can play in a clean, stink-free environment.

  • Any fighting, biting, bleeding or excessive barking, even when playing means it's time to go. Dogs won't stop themselves so we need your help to keep them safe. There are some very easy things to watch for to make sure safe play is maintained. Check out this guide!

  • We are an indoor/outdoor environment that is designed for a consistent safe level of play. Excessive barking, even when playing, can escalate other dogs and quickly change the mood of the space. We understand that some dogs play in this manner, but for an indoor space, it can create stress for other dogs. Even if your dog barks when playing or chasing, you must be able to quiet them and demonstrate full control. As soon as one dog starts barking, many others follow...and the mood changes VERY quickly! In our confined space, this type of "barky" play is not allowed.

  • No outside toys or treats allowed in the off leash play area.

  • We offer beer, cider, wine, non-alcoholic drink options and snacks. You're welcome to bring your own food, at your own risk! Watch out for hamburglers!
