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. 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 (215) 443-5428e

Pooper Scooper Ordinance

Ordinance #565 regulates animal defecation on public and private property and the disposal of animal feces. Pet owners are required to clean up after their animals, not only in the parks, but on all public and private property in the Township, or face a possible fine up to $1,000.

Noise Ordinance

Pet owners should be aware that Warminster Township has an ordinance in place regarding unprovoked incessant noise made by animals***. For more info regarding this and other Pennsylvania State Dog Laws, contact Craig Claycomb, Animal Control Officer (267) 317-1380. ***Violators are subject to a $100-$500 fine for non-compliance***

Protect Your Mail Carrier and Emergency Service Personnel

Dog bites can lead to severe and life-threatening injury. Please be sure that your dog is secured during postal delivery and EMS response. Place your dog in a separate room and close that door before opening the front door. If you have electronic pet control fencing, please bring the dog inside if you expect mail or package delivery, home care workers or EMS personnel. Dog owners who have access to postal notification features, such as Informed Delivery (informeddelivery.usps.com) for letter mail and package tracking, are urged to use these features to determine when the carrier is on their way and to ensure their dog has been properly restrained. While visiting your home, these public service workers may appear as a threat to your dog, and even a dog that “never bites” can be unpredictable if they perceive that their owner is in danger. According to PA Dog Laws, all dogs must be under control and must not be allowed to run at large. Dogs are personal property, and owners are responsible for damages caused by their dog. Pennsylvania Dog Bite Law makes dog owners and keepers strictly liable for the payments of a victim’s medical costs.
