15Drove an hour only to be told it was closed. She did refund me right away though
15I'm sure this will be a lovely spot when it's ready to open. My first visit was cancelled because Shai was helping out with a cruelty case. I rebooked and received a message the night before that she was trying to have things ready to open the next day and would keep me updated if anything changed with my reservation. She apparently sent another message to cancel, but because she's in a rural area, it didn't go through with spotty internet. My dog does not do well in the car, but for some off-leash time I figured it would be worth the drive. So we had an hour and twenty minute drive there (and of course Digby threw up :( ), only to find out the park is not ready to open yet. The fencing is not complete. I brought Digby on a short walk (probably 15 minutes tops) at a park nearby with short grass. Thank goodness my friends had warned me how bad the ticks were in the area. I had to pull over to remove one from my pants on the drive home. When we got home, I found 3 on Digby- 2 attached. Luckily he's on Nexgard, but still time consuming to check him over. All in all, it was a pretty stressful day for something I thought would be a fun time. I don't think booking should be allowed until the park is actually ready to open. And where the internet is unreliable, it would be good for Shai to find a way to ensure the message gets through, or to get a phone number to call the person to notify them of any cancellations. She did say that it had happened to one other person before. As I mentioned, she does seem like a very sweet person, and I'm sure eventually this will be a nice place to go.
