    It is What we Make IT

    My little dog enjoys time in this dog park and I agree with the comments that most owners are responsible and understand not all dogs mix well and get along. One concern is the lack of running water which is especially unfair since we are ALL PAYING to be there. Please owners, stop by the Family Center and ask for the water to be fixed!!

    Love It!!!

    We recently adopted a one year-old Lab mix. He had some experience with other dogs but has learned so much from playing, running, and barking with the other dogs! We have not had any negative experiences with other dogs. A few of the owners have been a little touchy(I wonder if they read the part about dog behaviors). We have never noticed bad smells, except around the receptacles. Great park...Great dogs...Great people!!!

    Dogs are different

    Overall a great experience. The main problem is when people bring small dogs that want to play hard with big dogs. All is good until the playing starts, and the owners are then worried that the small dogs are getting roughed up. If you come to run with dogs its the dogs who decide how it will go. When they come in the park some are pack leaders and others are not. A little nipping and running is what dogs do, if that's not for you or your dog then this may not be the dog park for you.

    I love it!

    My dog wasn't the most socialized dog before I started taking her to this dog park and now she LOVES going to the park. I've never smelled an overabundance of feces and as far as I know everyone picks up after their dogs. Once you go often enough you start to recognize people and dogs and it's a really friendly environment. Sure there are some scuffles between some dogs but hi, they're dogs. Owners are generally responsible and accountable for keeping the pets well behaved and safe. I love this dog park I can't wait to get back to going every evening with my girl now that the weather is nice.

    Great ExperienceI

    I bring my Aussiedoodle puppy to B-Rip bark park from 1-4 days a week and find it hard to believe some of the previous comments. There are plentiful areas where poop-bags are dispensed and can be disposed of. As a "regular:" many of us will patrol the area and pick up poop, just to keep the area clean and healthy for our dogs. I seldom seen and never smell feces in the area.

    As for the experience, my dog has been lucky to have always had a good play time at this bark park. Many of the people there when I go (anywhere from 8:00 AM to Noon) are the same people, with dogs who are very well socialized and well behaved. This IS a park more comfortable for larger dogs, but if you have a small dog, there is plenty of room to go off to yourself for some "privacy".

    This is an unsupervised park - it is up to owners to be responsible about their dogs behavior and fights can break out. I am sorry for any bad experiences anyone has had, but it is sort of the nature of the beast.

    I didn't even let my dogs out of the car

    I drove there with both my dogs very early in the morning to get them some exercise (I wanted to take them early in hopes that there would be less dogs there, since they have never been to adog park before) All I can say is thank god when I got there I walked around a little bit first before getting them out of the car!!! You could smell the feces from the parking lot where nobody cleans up after their dogs, and when I walked up to the entrance to the park, I noticed three different owners there with 5 Rottweiler/Pit Bull Mixes between them! As soon as I walked up to the fence, they came toward me, which was all I needed to retreat to my car and get outta there.

    Bad day at broadripple dog park

    My dog was attacked twice in 15 min. The owner did not take responsibility for their dogs behavior. The humans became very aggressive -- wonder where the dogs learned their behavior?
