    Awesome Time

    We are members and my dog loves the park. My dog Arlo loves being off leash, running and sniffing. I love that all dogs are up to to date on their vaccines. Staff and members are really nice.

    Poorly and dangerously run

    I was a member until my dog got attacked by a pitbull that the owner let a friend bring in without temperment testing. The vet bills cost me nearly $4,000 which the owner of the park and the owner of the pit bull refused to reimburse. They have no probably charging a fortune for membership, but they run when there is liability by them.

    Not Worth The Price

    This is a very expensive dog Park when I first went in I was expecting so much nicer for the high cost it was pretty run down in the clubhouse but the park itself outside was beautiful small pond, walking trail thru some trees, 2 separate fenced in fields to play with your dog
    I expected to have friendly dogs there my dog goes to day care and other parks never had any issues with any dogs yet had a dog try to attack her at this park
    They r suppose to have temperament testing this dog shouldn’t have been there was a scary situation that I didn’t expect from someplace that is suppose to be better
    I will not go back I feel it’s not worth the cost

    This place is amazing is all I can say. Go!! U won’t regret it! HUGE area for dogs! This place is #1 for elite dog parks. My huskies loved it. We don’t live in area but will be going back. Thanks so an amazing time and experience!

    Would not recommend

    Would not recommend. Just campy overall.
    IMHO, you're paying a lot for an uncontrolled environment that's really no better than a public park. And in many ways it's worse: very muddy in spring and fall; pond is just nasty. (You have to pay extra if you want to wash any of it off your dog with soap before getting in your car.) Very icy in winter. Bees in summer. But the icing on the cake is the poor customer service. Once they have your money, they just don't care.

    This place is absolutely AMAZING!! I'm seriously considering opening another one like it around where I live. It is so beautiful and so relaxing. They STRONGLY encourage dog owners to just take a nice relaxing stroll through the gated parks while their dogs run all over and out of sight. They are completely safe and will have the time of their lives. If I didn't live so far away I would hands down pay the membership fee, as it would be worth it to see my dogs so happy and excited. I DO suggest reading the rules and requirements though because you need to make sure your dog is suitable (not mean and up to date on all vaccines) to visit the park otherwise you may not be allowed in.

    Worth Every Penny

    Amazing dog park, perfect place to wear out your pup for the day. Amenities like coffee bar and bathtubs make it great for dog parents too!

    The Happiest Place on Earth (for a pup!)

    What a place to bring your dog. Four huge, fully fenced in fields, a large pond for swimming, oodles of tennis balls (with chuck-its!) and water stations all around make this the perfect place for tiring out your dog. Plus, they have outdoor rinse stations, and indoor tubs for full bath time! Lit paths, a small dog area, and plenty of poop bags make this truly the happiest place on earth for a dog!

    Seems nice, but too expensive

    Checked out the website and the membership is over $400 per year. That's outrageous! I can find a nice dog park that is only a fraction of that price!

    Visit the website and take your paperwork. I didn't get to play. I did see a very clean, well kept park. It was so big I couldn't see all of it. Mom was willing to pay the fee for one day but she didn't read the requirements.
