dog-carThe VIP Barking Spot is back! Tickets for the raffle are $10 each (with money raised going to the park). You can purchase them at Doylestown Township, Doylestown Borough and from DP Advisory Board members. We have one Small Dog Barking Spot and one Large Dog Barking Spot.

The drawing will be held at the first Township Board of Supervisors Meeting on January 6th, 2015. The Barking Spot is located beside the walkway to the park, opposite of the designated handicapped parking area.

Calling all ghoulish greyhounds, devilish dachshunds, poodle princesses and butterfly bulldogs; whatever the costume, we want to see your dressed-up canine! Bring your well-mannered, leashed friend and family to the park for a howling good time that celebrates our four-legged faithful friends. Pet exhibitors and rescue organizations will be there to help you find new tips and tools to care for your furry family members…maybe even you’re new BFF.

Saturday, October 25, from 10:00am – 1:00 pm., at Turk Park (adjacent to the dog park) on Almshouse Road. Participation is FREE and dog park membership is not required. Free goodie bags for the first 100 to check in. (Rain Date: Sunday – October 26th).

Doylestown Township Parks & Recreation and Hilltown Dog Club Lure Coursing have teamed up to offer Lure Coursing, a great canine activity at Turk Park III (almshouse Rd. adjacent to the dog park). Lure coursing is a fast-paced, fun chase sport. Dogs chase the lure (“bunny”), a white plastic bag that is attached to a line that is mechanized and controlled by a lure operator. The machine runs the line at a speed determined by the lure operator (and the dog). The run area will be enclosed by a temporary fence. All non-aggressive dogs, big or small, are welcome to come out.

Dates:
May17 & 18
June 21 & 22
July 19 & 20
August 16 & 17
September 20 & 21
October 18 & 19
November 15 & 16 (weather permitting)
December 20 & 21 (weather permitting)

Cost: $10 per run

Registration: Email Stephanie at starpho@yahoo.com to register your dog and reserve a spot



LURE COURSING RULES:

  • ALL DOGS MUST WARM UP PRIOR TO RUNNING. This means a nice long walk while you’re waiting for your turn.
  • Dogs MUST cool down between runs. This means we’ll make you wait for at least 20 minutes between runs (and you need to walk them right afterward).
  • Please cut your dog’s nails two days before running. Long nails can cause injuries.
  • Please clean up after your dog, if you are caught not cleaning up, you will be asked to leave.
  • Please bring plenty of water for your dogs, we don’t want any thirsty runners.
  • Hold onto your dog’s when other dogs are running. There is a lot of excitement going on.
  • Please make sure your dogs are up to date on rabies vaccines.
  • Absolutely no aggressive dogs allowed.
  • A waiver form must be signed or on file before running your dogs, I will not make you resign.
  • No prong collars inside the ring.
