Here are the answers to many of our frequently asked questions.

Bark Park and Bark Park Play and Stay has an all-day play environment, so dogs must be able to play safely in a large group. Every dog must first complete an interview process, the Camper Interview and Evaluation, so we can see how they interact with other dogs. They must be over four months old, be spayed or neutered if they are over 6 months old, and be current on their Rabies, 6 month Bordetella (for canine cough), and Distemper vaccinations. We now require they be vaccinated for Canine Influenza as it has presented in the Midwest and is highly contagious, however it is not required by the Dept. of Agriculture at this time. They must be in good health, flea/tick free, friendly to all dogs, and generally love to play.

Since the Bark Park is a play environment where they will be in a large social group with other dogs, we want to ensure they are able to handle it. This ensures your dog’s safety, and also the safety of all of our Park Players. In our social environment, it is extremely important that our Park Players can play with all dogs so we can keep the play yards safe and fun. The interview process also allows us to introduce your dog into the general play areas slowly so that we do not over stimulate your dog. We like the interview to be at least three hours so we have time to get to know your dog and to give your dog time to realize you have left and – most importantly –to be excited to see you when you come to pick them up. At the Bark Park at Dapper Dog, the initial interview day is always free.

We built our business and our foundation on improving the lives of our furry friends. When creating policies for our Bark Park, we first and foremost consider the safety, health and happiness of our Bark Parkers, and second, the wishes of our human clients. Our strict policies are a key reason customers are so loyal.

We have a very stringent application and interview process for our Bark Parkers – all dogs must pass this before entering our group play environments. Our Bark Rangers go through extensive training in dog behavior, play yard monitoring techniques and evaluating dogs based on capabilities to adapt and enjoy our open-play environments. 

Camper interviews last at least three hours to give us time to get to know your dog and to give your dog time to play in a group environment and see if they enjoy it. At the Bark Park, the initial interview day is always free. The interview consists of us starting off by checking your dog over to ensure they are comfortable being handled. This is a time for the Bark Rangers to spend a little time getting to know your dog and making sure they aren’t nervous of people. They will also look your dog over for any possible issues such as fleas and ticks and for any existing injuries that may worsen when playing with other dogs.

Other dogs will be introduced into the interview area one at a time to see how your dog interacts with other dogs. After our Bark Rangers are confident that your dog feels secure in the environment, your pup – along with their new friends – will be introduced into the appropriate play area based on their size, temperament, and activity level.

Do not be discouraged! Defiant Dog Training and Rehabilitation can work with your pet and help them overcome many social issues they may be facing.
