A Safe Place to Play:
Our Dog Park in Winter Haven
Want to take your pet to the local dog park but unsure if it’s safe? While dogs are required to be healthy and current on their vaccinations, this cannot always be guaranteed. At Veterinary Healthcare Associates, we’re very excited to offer our ‘Bark Park’ where dogs can run, play, and make friends in a secure space with minimal risk. That’s because our dog park is for members only, and to obtain a membership, your pet needs to be up-to-date with their vaccinations.
Why Your Dog Needs to Socialize
Dogs are social animals that feel most at home with their ‘pack.’ Therefore, like people, they need healthy interactions and plenty of activity to stay happy and healthy. Membership in our dog park will give you the chance to spend more quality time with your companion and improve their lifestyle.
Requirements for Membership
Our Bark Park is open daily between dawn and dusk. To obtain a membership, you must:
- Provide proof from your veterinarian that your pet is current on their rabies, DHPP, and Bordetella vaccines
- Sign the Release of Liability and Indemnification Form
- Provide signed acceptance of our Bark Park Rules and Regulations
Members of our Bark Park may cancel their contract without penalty or obligation (and receive a full refund) within seven calendar days of the date their membership begins. Memberships are non-transferable.
Veterinary Healthcare Associates reserves the right to deny entry to the park or membership in the park for a violation of the Rules and Regulations of the VHA Bark Park and to terminate membership or expel a person and/or dog from the park for a violation of the Rules and Regulations.
If Veterinary Healthcare Associates terminates a membership, they reserve the right to return pro-rated fees or no fees. Veterinary Healthcare Associates wants you and your pets to have an enjoyable experience. With your cooperation and understanding, we can continue to maintain and upgrade the Bark Park for your current and future enjoyment.
