OUTDOOR POOL RULES

Bark-A-Bout Pet Resort is in operation during dock diving practice hours. This means our dogs in play groups will be enjoying our outdoor play yard until 5pm each day. The dock diving pool is separated from these dogs only by an adjoining fence. For the safety of all dogs, since all dogs can see each other through the fence, it is very imperative that you keep your dog by the pool and away from the fence line to avoid any interaction with our dogs in playgroups. Absolutely no tying your dog to the fence.

 

Bark-A-Bout and/or its employees retain the right to ask anyone not following these rules, policies, procedures or instructions to leave the pool area.

• All dog owners and dogs must have prior jumping experience through Bark-A-Bout’s swim instructor or a similar dog organization before entering the outdoor pool area.
• Female dogs in heat are only allowed to participate thru private pool rental.
• Only ONE dog may be off lead and on the dock at a time.
• It is your responsibility to watch that the dog on the dock is back on lead before un-leashing your dog.
• “Training collars” are not allowed on the dock. This includes but is not limited to prong collars, choke collars and/or electronic collars.
• No abusive treatment of dogs including any harsh correction and collar jerks will be permitted.
• No pushing or pulling the dog up the stairs or into the pool. (The dog MUST go in on its own accord.)
• No throwing the dog in the pool to get him/her acclimated to the sport.
• There may be only 2 handlers on the dock: one to hold the dog while the other “handles” the dog.
• During open pool time, it is your responsibility to be aware of the dog and human in front of you and behind you, keeping your dog out of reach of all others. Respect the personal space of all others.
• You must provide all towels if you wish to dry off your dog.
• You must provide all appropriate throw toys for your dog.
