How to Get Your Dog Ready for Membership at The Bark Park – Tucson’s First Canine Social Club

If you haven’t already heard the good news, Tucson’s first indoor dog park and social spot is on the way!

With an opening date anticipated in fall of 2023, The Bark Park is about to shape our dog community for the better. Now is the time to prepare your favorite four-legged friend to discover this awesome local place to run, play, and so much more! That’s right– your dog will have to be vetted and pass a social test and follow the other rules to be okayed to join the park as a member.

So, let’s review how you can help your best bud pass with flying colors!

Since comfort and safety are top priority when it comes to any space for dogs, we’ll start with the obvious: vaccinations. As a good paw-rent you’ll probably already want to make sure your dog is up-to-date on their Bordetella, Parvo, Distemper, Lepto, and Rabies vaccinations. You’ll also want to have those records handy to turn in with your dog’s membership application!

However, it’s not all about the paperwork. How has your best friend’s training been going? While you’re visiting The Bark Park, you’ll be responsible for your dog’s behavior and safety. This means that we expect your best fur-riend to be prepared for social situations! This will include meeting and playing with other dogs, as well as interacting with other humans. You will want your dog to be prepped to go off-leash safely, meaning they’ll need to display a good recall, paw-fect manners for meeting other dogs of various sizes, and in general, positive social behaviors.

In other words, it’s time to prepare your pup to become a part of a pack! Remember, once you join The Bark Park, you and your best fur-riend will be expected to continue to follow all guidelines. You’ll want to keep a close eye on your best friend at all times, no matter their level of training. You’ll also need to listen to the Rufferees at all times– think of them as lifeguards for this space! You and your pup will need to follow their instructions for safe play.

Our dogs are more than just pets!

They are our children and family. We know you hate the thought of your pet being lonely. The look on your pet’s face when you head out for work or on vacation can leave us feeling guilt-ridden. We get it!

  • We’re so incredibly happy to have found a company and truly genuine people to watch our dogs. We have 3 dogs and we’ve never been able to travel without them unless a family member could help out. Ali, with Working for Wags, was the most incredible sitter! She watched them overnight for 4 nights and even spent a little extra time with them the day we were flying back in. She also helped with a very last minute house issue, which saved the day! The entire process was super professional and friendly, communication was seamless, and we will only be using Working for Wags, moving forward. A huge shout out to Ali!

  • I'd give them 10 stars if I could! The sitters are wonderful!! They are true animal lovers, and I trust them fully. One of my dogs has epilepsy, so finding sitters comfortable with the risk of a seizure can be tough. But, they came fully prepared and knowledgeable about what to do. If you love your dogs like I do, I highly recommend them!! 🐕💙

  • Justeen watched our cat for 5 days while we were gone for an extra long weekend. She also watered our plants and took the trash out even though we had forgotten to ask. When we came back our cat, who can be withdrawn after we've been away, acted like we had only been gone a couple of hours. We're very happy to have found this company.

  • We have used Working for Wags twice now, one for an overnight stay and this last time for a week long vacation. I am nervous leaving our pups; it helps a lot knowing they are in our home and not in a kennel. The communication was fabulous both times. I loved receiving pictures of our pups while we were away! Isabel was amazing! I have one pup who can be particular with people; she warmed right up to Isabel! We will definitely use Working for Wags in the future! Thank you for helping to make our vacation great!

  • Kristy was fantastic! My pets (dogs and cats) quickly warmed up to her and seemed to really feel comfortable with her (and the other sitter that visited too). I have one EXTRA nervous dog and I was shocked how quickly he warmed up to her. I got frequent updates about my pets and pictures even (which made me so happy and get to see how comfortable my pets were). It 100% put my mind as ease knowing my pets were in such good hands. Would definitely recommend.

  • Kristy knew that we were first time doggie parents to leave our babies. She made us feel so comfortable and able to enjoy our vacation.
