To develop a beautiful and well-maintained space open to dog lovers and friends who are willing to uphold the park's rules and regulations.

DOG LICENSE NEWS!**
2015 Dog Licenses are NOW ON SALE at the Warminster Parks and Recreation.
Mandatory Bark Park Workshop: As recommended by the Warminster Animal Control Officer, all applicants that wish to become members of the Bark Park must attend one FREE Bark Park workshop prior to acceptance and provision of a key card. These workshops are provided each month at the Warminster Recreation & Education Center, 1100 Veterans Way. The purpose of these workshops is to provide information to the responsible dog owner and for each member to understand their responsibilities. We do this to ensure the safety of all owners and dogs that play at the Bark Park.

GOING TO THE DOGS
Dog Park Safety For You & Your Dog (Mandatory for new Bark Park Members!)
To make our Bark Park as successful as possible, all new Paw Pass holders must attend one of our Bark Park educational seminars. If you are thinking about joining the park, we invite you to attend one of these seminars in 2012. During these 90 minute seminars, a certified trainer will review how the dog park works and, by educating the owners in dog behaviors, we hope to reduce the number of problems. Owners will learn "Pet Etiquette", pet and people safety, socialization tips, basic obedience. Q&A and handouts will be provided. Class size is limited; no pets please. Call Parks and Recreation to sign up.

Some members of the Bark Park recently put together a facebook profile so that members can find out when their dog can have a play date. Please visit their posting by clicking here. The Parks and Recreation department does not have control over these posting, so please check with the group administrator for more information.
