FAQs

Can I get a tour of the facility?

Yes, absolutely! We love to give tours as well as answer any questions that you might have about Barx Parx. We are very proud of our facility and can't wait to show you around! Please leave your pup(s) at home for the tour 🙂

Are vaccination records required?

Yes, so please come prepared! Current Rabies, DHPP and Bordetella vaccination records are required to be on file before your pup can play. The only exception may be for dogs in which medical records show the vet no longer recommends vaccinations. If your dog just got re-vaccinated for Bordetella, they must wait 24 hours before visiting. If it's your dog's first time getting Bordetella vaccination, they must wait 14 days before coming. Also, your dog must be flea and tick free.

The fastest, best way to send over your vaccination records is to email them to [email protected] before you come. Once we receive, we will review the records and send you a confirmation email to let you know if everything is good to go. We absolutely hate having to turn poor pups away that show up with out-of-date or incomplete vaccinations - but we need to be strict about this in order to ensure a safe environment for all.

(Canine influenza vaccines are not required, but strongly recommended. The nightly disinfectant that we researched and chose specifically for our facility is a bit of a splurge, but it kills canine influenza, canine parvovirus, plus over 50 other viruses and pathogens!)

What is the best way to send vaccination records?

After you have registered, the fastest, best way to send over your vaccination records is to email them to [email protected] before you come.

Do you require the canine influenza vaccine?

Canine influenza vaccines are not required for Barx Parx, but are strongly recommended. The nightly disinfectant that we researched and chose specifically for our facility is a bit of a splurge, but it kills canine influenza, canine parvovirus, plus over 50 other viruses and pathogens!

Does my dog have to be spayed or neutered?

Yes, dogs over six months of age are required to be fixed in order to use the indoor dog park. All dogs attending doggy daycare or overnight boarding must be fixed no matter the age.

Do you perform behavior assessments?

Yes. Every dog, regardless of age, breed or size, must pass a behavior assessment. It’s just a little meet and greet that we do to make sure that your pup is happy being at Barx Parx. The purpose of the behavior assessments are to evaluate a dog’s response to different situations and environmental changes and help ensure the safety of all of our 2-legged and 4-legged friends. Behavior assessments are performed by trained staff members and are by appointment only.

What if my dog doesn’t pass the behavior assessment?

No problem, you can always try again at a later date! We understand that everyone has a bad day every now and then - pups included. The purpose of the behavior assessments are to evaluate a dog's innate character and help ensure the safety of all of our 2-legged and 4-legged friends. If your dog is unable to pass after the second try, our staff will provide consultation on training techniques as well as class options to help guide your canine best friend in the right direction.

Do you have a “small dog” area?

Yes, we have a designated "small dog"/"gentle dog" area. It can be used by small dogs as well as by large dogs that are super gentle.

Can small dogs go in the active play “big dog” area?

We recognize that some small dogs do very well with large dogs, so in many cases this is not a problem. However, if your small dog is barking excessively or showing signs of aggression, we will politely ask you to move out of the "big dog" area.

Can large dogs go in the gentle play “small dog” area?

We understand that some large dogs are older and/or intimidated by active play, so in many cases this is not an issue. However, if your large dog's play becomes a safety risk for the smaller dogs, we will politely ask you to relocate your pup.

What are the indoor dog park rules?
Does the staff watch out for my dog?

While our team always makes a best effort to ensure safety and monitor the level of play, your dog is ultimately your responsibility. You must keep an eye on your pup and be in control of them at all times. Remain in sight of your dog at all times to ensure and don't turn your back on them. Keeping an eye on your pup will help keep them playing safe.

What about aggression or bullying?

Dogs that are displaying any signs of aggression, bullying or aggravating other pups will politely be asked to take a time out or leave.

Can I come without a dog?

While Barx Parx is primarily designed for owners to socialize with their dog, yes, of course you can come without a pup! Guests flying solo can purchase a "non dog" membership or day pass.

What about barking?

We are a completely enclosed, indoor facility that is designed for a relaxed, safe level of play. Excessive barking is not allowed in our confined environment. Even when playing, the "talking" can frenzy other dogs and stress out the entire space. As soon as one dog starts barking, many others follow, and the mood changes very quickly! We understand that some dogs play in this manner, but for an indoor space, it can create anxiety for the other pups. You must be able to quiet your dogs down, redirect their attention and demonstrate full control.

Can I bring my puppy?

Sure, we love puppies! As long they are socialized and at least four months old with all of the required vaccinations, they can enter the indoor dog park. Younger pups may attend specific training classes and special events.

Can I bring my cat?

Now you are just being silly!

What about glass beverage bottles?

Your pup's safety is always our number one priority! We will carry as many aluminum can and plastic bottle beverages as possible. Plastic cups will be provided to easily transfer glass bottled beverages into.

Can I bring in outside food?

Sure! You're more than welcome to bring your own food, but consume at your own risk! Non-chocolate snacks will be available for purchase including nachos & cheese, pretzels, chips, cookies, nuts, jerky and candy. Beverages can go anywhere, but all food and dog treats must stay in the on-leash, bar area only.

Does it smell bad?

Nope! Cleanliness is extremely important to us. We have an extensive cleaning and sanitizing process that occurs nightly. The disinfectant that we researched and chose specifically for our facility is a bit of a splurge, but it kills canine influenza, canine parvovirus, plus over 50 other viruses and pathogens!

Do you allow kids?

Sorry, no one under is 21 allowed. Barx Parx is a 21 and older establishment.

Why are you a 21+ establishment?

Safety is always our #1 priority at Barx Parx. Not all dogs are comfortable around kids, and visa versa. We want to create a low stress environment for everyone involved and limit potential issues as much as possible.

We actually have kids of our own and love watching kids play with dogs. Barx Parx will be a 21+ establishment because we are a social experience for dogs and their people. We will have lots of entertainment options in a highly active environment along with refreshments, including alcohol.

Our number one priority is always to ensure that Barx Parx is a safe place for everyone. While we feel comfortable parenting your pups when they get over stimulated, we don't feel comfortable parenting your kids. An indoor dog park is a totally new concept for our community (and state). Getting it approved is taking quite a bit of work - getting it approved AND insured while also allowing kids would be nearly impossible for us.

The 21+ experience that we are creating for you and your four-legged friends at Barx Parx is one that we think you will REALLY enjoy!

Can my dog get sick or catch a disease?

Your dog can be exposed to contagious illnesses or diseases regardless of where they are. When following proper vaccination and sanitation protocols, the risk of contracting an illness or disease is minimal. We pride ourselves on having an extremely clean facility and maintain very strict vaccination, disinfection and sanitation standards to do everything we can to prevent illness and disease transmission at Barx Parx. Having the Bordetella vaccination does not guarantee your dog won't get kennel cough, but it greatly helps increase their immunity to it. The nightly disinfectant that we researched and chose specifically for our facility is a bit of a splurge, but it kills canine influenza, canine parvovirus, plus over 50 other viruses and pathogens!

Do you accept vaccines that were administered at home? I have the packaging.

Unfortunately, no. Sorry, but we only accept vaccination records and titer tests from vets.

How old does my dog need to be?

Dogs under 4 months of age are not permitted, dogs over 6 months of age must be spayed or neutered.

Do you know any dog jokes?

Yes! What do you call a frozen dog? A pupsicle.

(What? You didn't ask if we knew any GOOD dog jokes!)
