What is DogBoy’s Private Dog Park?
Starting March 1st, DogBoy’s Private Dog Park will be open to clients and their dogs only, who have been evaluated and given a behavioral card color designation. Click here for details on our Card Color Policy. Reservations and/or Dog Park Memberships will be required. So by coming to the open house on 2/25, you’ll be getting a sneak peak!
So it’s not FREE? There are dog parks all over town that are free. Why would I pay to go to a dog park?
The Open House is absolutely free. And it’s true – there ARE dog parks all over town that are free, like Bull Creek, Red Bud Isle, even Pflugerville has a couple now! The difference between those parks and DogBoy’s Private Dog Park is that at DogBoy’s, your dog will be playing with other dogs who have all been evaluated – and given a GREEN Card color designation. This means that they are generally good with lots of other kinds of dogs. This also means you are at a park with a more controlled dog population, and your dog is at a much lower risk for problems with other dogs. Of course, there is a risk anytime you take your dog to a dog park, but wouldn’t you like to have more control over who is there when you visit?
If your dog is not great with other dogs, or only good with specific kinds of dogs (i.e. has an Orange or Red card designation from DogBoy’s), you can make private reservations during the week for your dogs and/or your friends’ dogs (who you know your dog likes), so they can play in a safe, fenced in area, with no risk of interaction with dogs you don’t know. If you bring your friend and your friends dogs for a private reservation, they don’t have to be a current customer. We think there is value in all these differences, and we hope you’ll think so too.
Owners of Green card dogs can purchase monthly dog park memberships ($30/month per family), and with those memberships will be allowed to visit any Saturday or Sunday from 9-6. Additionally private reservations can also be made during the week from 3pm till dark.
Owners of Orange and Red card dogs can make private reservations on weekday afternoons for as little as $10 for your family of dogs. Group rates are available. You will have the park all to your self from 3 pm till dark!
If your dog has not yet been evaluated for a color card designation, we can take care of that evaluation during a day of day care. Call our office or email us for details on getting evaluated.
We look forward to seeing you!! If you have any questions about the dog park, just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
