Where will Waggin' Trails Dog Park be located?
Our location is on Glendale Road in Northampton, just ten minutes drive from downtown Northampton and downtown Easthampton.
Will Waggin' Trails be open to the public?
Waggin' Trails will have membership based entry using electronic access fobs. Anybody whose dog meets the requirements will be allowed to become a member.
What are the requirements for dogs to become members?
All breeds are welcome at Waggin' Trails! Dogs will need to be at least four months old, spayed or neutered (by one year), up to date on vaccinations, and free from a history of aggression.
How do I become a member of Waggin' Trails?
Sign up on our mailing list on our webpage: www.waggintrailsdogpark.com to receive updates, and when the park is ready to accept members, you will be contacted.
In addition to filling out paperwork registering you and your dog, members will receive educational materials including information on Waggin' Trails etiquette and the rules of the park.
Will there be an annual rate?
In addition to daily passes, members will be able to purchase discounted monthly and yearly passes.
What will you do about all the poop?
We ask that our members respectfully chip in to keep the park clean by picking up after their dogs. We will have bio-degradable bags and bins spaced throughout the park, which will be picked up regularly, and the poop used in a dog-waste composter.
What will you do about aggressive dogs?
First, aggressive dogs will not pass the requirements for membership. We will make sure all of our members are educated to detect and prevent any canine "disagreements" before they occur. Any aggressive dogs will be removed immediately. If a dog is a repeat offender, their membership will be revoked and they will no longer be allowed in the park.
What if I see someone breaking Waggin' Trails rules?
Please report any violations of park policy at the office, and if a person or their dog is behaving in a manner deemed unacceptable, their membership will be revoked and they will no longer be allowed in the park.
Can puppies come to Waggin' Trails??
Once a puppy is four months old and up to date on their vaccinations, they are welcome to the park. Puppies under four months do not have a strong enough immune system yet. Once they are four months your puppy will love our dedicated puppy area!
There is no better way to teach a dog manners and proper socialization than to let them learn from lots of other friendly dogs.
Can children come to Waggin' Trails?
Waggin' Trails is a family-friendly park! All children under 12 must be supervised by an adult. Children under three should be in a carrier or stroller to keep them safe from running pups.
Is there a limit to how many dogs I can bring to Waggin' Trails?
Members are allowed to bring up to two dogs into the park at one time.
Will food/treats be allowed in the park?
Human food is not allowed in the park. Dog treats are allowed, but we ask that you handle them in a respectful manner; don't give out treats to other people's dogs without asking, don't cause a commotion or fight.
