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.

What our clients are saying.

  • Angela did such an awesome job with our dogs! This was the first time we have left our dogs in a very long time due to 2 of the 3 being elderly and needing extra care. Angela was very attentive to their needs. We never had to worry about how they were doing because she would send updates via texts with pictures several times a day. Angela also brought up the mail and took care of garbage. I think the house was cleaner when we came home than when we left. I would not hesitate to have Angela back to watch out furry babies.

  • Communication was excellent from the initial contact, meet and greet, during the pet sitting, and after. Got updates throughout our vacation. My animals were well taken care of!

  • 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.

  • Angela not only took care of all 4 of our cats each day but went above and beyond with pictures and updates everyday. She even watered our plants. I highly recommend!

  • 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!! 🐕💙

  • Everyone from Wags from supper friendly, they are very detailed and communicate super well. Ocean took amazing care of our babies, she also sent frequent updates and pictures that we loved. We will definitely call wags everytime we are away.

  • 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!

  • I can't recommend Working For Wags enough! They worked hard to win over my two timid/uncertain dogs during the initial meet and greet and the subsequent trial runs we had prior to leaving on vacation. The dogs loved Payton and she sent lots of updates and pictures. This is absolutely the way to go if you have dogs like mine that don't do well in a boarding facility environment. Working For Wags took away the stress (and guilt) of leaving my boys and made sure they had an enjoyable time while we were away.
