Zionsville Country Kennel's New Dog (Water) Park
The Zionsville Country Kennel is pleased to announce that it will be celebrating the grand opening on July 12 from 4 p.m.-8 p.m. of its watery addition to its existing leash-free dog park known as The Retreat. They will now have over 7 acres for you and your dogs to explore and run, plus a lake to splash in and cool off (dogs only). Just some info on the grand opening, if you are not currently a member: you will need to keep your dog on his/her leash. They will have free food and drinks, giveaways, and a few other surprises.
The Retreat is the area’s first private leash-free dog park, and includes a five-acre fenced-in area just to the north of the main facility. The new area could be called a doggie water park because it includes a pond with a dock for those dogs that love the water.
The hours on the new section will be the same as the old section—sunrise to sunset, 365 days per year. (They do close the park on some special occasions like for private birthday parties or group outings.) It is a members-only dog park, and you need to make an appointment for a free assessment of your dog(s) to qualify for membership. Your pets also need to be up to date on all vaccinations including rabies and distemper, and spayed or neutered, depending on their age. They also have a separate section for smaller dogs.
Every family that purchases a membership up to and including July 12 will only pay $110 per year for this year and next year (up to 3 dogs per family). After July 12, the cost will be $150 per year per dog, and then a 30 percent discount for each additional dog in the same family. They will also offer a 6-month pass for $100, and a 3-month pass for $70.
With the hot summer days ahead, it is the perfect cool exercise area for any dog attracted to the water. Don’t forget, you can get your dog trimmed and coiffed after the swim at the Zionsville Country Kennel. See you and your best buddy there for the grand opening.
