    How do I get into the park?
    The park has a pad lock in which you receive a PIN code via email. This code will change every 2 months.

    Is it safe to use the park?
    There are hundreds of dog parks across the country and with proper precautions and vigilance they are a safe and enjoyable. Inherent risks are associated when dogs get together. Fights can occur. Animals that appear healthy can be harboring diseases. Bideawee can not thoroughly screen all applicants for health and temperament but takes reasonable steps to ensure our canine members are healthy and well-behaved. 

    Why do I need to sign a liability waiver?
    Not all dogs get along and there are risks inherent when you put a pack of unfamiliar dogs together. There is a possibility for a dog to bite another dog, or a human for that matter. Bideawee needs the pet guardian to be responsible for his or her pet's behavior. The waiver is proof that every member knows this and assumes all unforeseeable risks.

    Do I have to bring my dog to the vet before we can go play?
    Not necessarily. If you dog had your annual check up within the calendar year and the vaccinations are up to date all that needs to be done is to have your veterinarian fill out the medical health report. Your dog's vaccinations need to be current to protect you from contracting communicable diseases that other dogs may be harboring. Rabies vaccines are required by law.

    What are zoonotic diseases and how can I determine if my dog has one?
    Zoonotic diseases are infections that can be spread from animals to humans. The general method of spread is through fecal matter, or through infected saliva. Many intestinal parasites are zoonotic. If your dog is on monthly heartworm preventative, chances are low that you dog is carrying anything.

    Can my dog catch anything at the dog park besides Frisbees and balls?
    Anytime your dog socializes with other dogs your dog runs the risk of contracting an infectious disease or parasite. Kennel Cough and intestinal worms are the most common. You can minimize the chance of your dog becoming infection by keeping current on vaccinations and taking heartworm preventative. Fleas, ticks and chiggers are also in the outdoor environment. Make sure your dog is protected against these pests. Your veterinarian can make recommendations about the best product that suit you and our dog's lifestyle.
