If the injury is serious or requires that my dog be removed from group activities, I will be notified immediately.

10. I understand and agree that should my dog become ill or in need of medical attention, THE DOG SOCIETY will first try to contact me.

Planning your first visit? At The Dog Society SAFETY Comes First Sure, it’s quite the list-- but you will have the peace of mind that all pups have been vetted just like yours, to help ensure a safe and fun environment for all to enjoy!

Requirements upon visiting: Please carefully review, acknowledge, and certify the below requirements of entry.


All visitors must sign The Dog Society Waiver. The Dog Society has the right to refuse service to any customer for any reason. All visitors are to abide by all THE DOG SOCIETY policies and rules, including direction from staff. Food and Beverages: No outside food, drinks, dog treats, or glass bottles are allowed. Please do not feed dogs, allow them to eat from other patron’s tables, or get into the garbage. Fresh filtered water is available throughout the facility. Vaping and Smoking: Smoking and vaping are NOT allowed on the premises, inside or out. Children: We love kids and offer a fun place for the whole family to enjoy, however they must always be under strict adult supervision. The Dog Society has a 21 years and older age requirement after 8pm daily. Patrons and Owners knowingly and voluntarily assume any risk of harm to yourself and/or your dog, and are responsible for any destruction or damages caused, including property of The Dog Society, to other patrons or their dogs and are legally and financially liable for damage or injury inflicted by their dog. No other animals or pets are permitted in the facility—(sorry kitties, we are The Dog Society after all!) Carefully watch as you enter and exit every gate/door of the facility, maintaining your dog on a leash and in control and not allowing other dogs to go with you. Seek out the assistance of a Pack Leader (in orange shirts) should issues or concerns arise.


Sign The Dog Society Waiver, Pet Release Authorization, and Dog Services Contract. All dogs must be 4 months or older. (Puppies must wait two weeks after their final puppy vaccination shots are completed.) All dogs must have the required vaccinations, including: DHLPP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Parainfluenza, Parvovirus), Bordetella, and Rabies. (Note that Rabies tags will not be accepted as validation.) The Dog Society will obtain written proof of current vaccination and spay/neuter records from your veterinarian before re-entry or purchasing passes/packages/Memberships. All dogs must be in a good condition of health. No dogs displaying signs of illness will be permitted (vomit, diarrhea, coughing, etc.) 48 hours prior to arrival at the facility. All dogs must be spayed or neutered if they are 6 months or older. Unaltered dogs destabilize the pack, and are at greater risk for injury by other dogs. If your unaltered pup displays “humping” or other behaviors, they may be asked to not return until they have been altered. Females must not be “in heat” while attending the facilities. All dogs must be free of parasites (fleas and ticks) and currently on a flea/tick preventative (such as Frontline). All dogs are inspected upon entry into the facility and should parasites be found, the dogs will be turned away or flea bathed and dipped at an additional cost to you. Behavior: All first-time pups to our Visitor areas must pass a quick initial “Bar test” behavioral walk through with a Pack Leader to ensure that all who visit enjoy a safe and fun environment. Constant barking must be kept under control as it is disruptive to other patrons and their dogs. If a dog continues to bark after two warnings, the dog may be asked to leave the facility. Prior to future re-admittance, you are required to meet with one of our training coaches for a 30 min. consultation on dog training options and how to help you and your pup grow and be allowed to return. Owners must always remain with their dog. Leash & Collar: Your pups must be on a non-flexible, non-retractable leash (a maximum length of 6 feet) at all times. If you don’t have one, we have them available for purchase. Dogs must wear a collar with current name tags and contact information. Please leave all toys at home, and do not use other items to engage in play on premises so as to avoid any potential for fights with others. Please clean up after your pup promptly with bags provided at waste stations. Visitors with more than 2 pups per person must have Management approval prior to visitation. If a patron appears intoxicated, you may be sent home at your expense in an Uber/Lyft/taxi etc. if alternative transportation is not provided and your pup(s) will spend the night in one of our boarding rooms at their expense.

I understand that failure to abide by any of these policies may result in prevention of entry, ejection from the premises, and/or suspension or termination of passes or Memberships at the sole discretion of management.
