55Our favorite local spot! We love to take both our personal and foster dogs here to let them run around. Easy to park/access, clean, big, and a great set up for dogs that might be barrier reactive. Provided toys and water are a huge plus. Thank you for another great experience!
55The dogs ran their hearts out here today! Even though it rained quite a bit yesterday, it wasn’t muddy - I was surprised!
55We had so much fun! There is plenty of seating available, lots of toys (and a separate bin to put them in for cleaning after they’ve been used) clean bowls & water, and plenty of wide open space for playing. The gate is secure, and on-site parking is a big selling point in the city.
55Everything you can expect from the listing! We had so much fun letting our doggo run around.
55Absolutely wonderful!
55Love this space! Such a great spot for the pups to fet out energy. Accommodating host as well! Tons of toys!
55Our dog loved it and we did, too. Lots of stuff to sniff and a nice little open space to run around
55Thx so much Sara! Another great afternoon at the spot!
55Great as always!
55According to the app, my dog & I have been to Tiva’s yard more than 40 times! We love it. Lately my dog has been infatuated with patrolling the yard to make sure the birds don’t get in. The bird feeder was a great addition to the yard.. it keeps my girl very busy! Sara is always responsive if we ever need anything! Thanks for providing a consistent place for my dog to feel safe & confident!

Description

**We have added OPEN reservations from 8:30am to 5:30pm weekdays for people that would like to visit the yard prior to deciding if they would like to become full access Members.** We LOVE sharing our space with multiple dogs from the community however, it is hard on the grass. For this reason, we have limited our evening & weekend availability to Members Only to decrease the wear and tear on the yard. With the fluctuation in weather please be aware: If outdoor parks are wet and muddy ~ areas of our yard will be also. We cannot control the effects of rain. Please always use the provided carabiner to lock the gate as pictured after you and your dog(s) enter. We have installed multiple methods of LIGHTING for evening reservations. Easy instructions for use will be sent when you make the reservation. We do have a SHADE/RAIN SHELTER! :) WATER: We provide fresh water every 24hrs located in(or next to) the CORONA Cooler. PARKING: One FREE private parking space located at the entrance from the alley at the back of the lot. Since some guests were having a tough time with the parking space, we did finally WIDEN the entrance. We park 2 Honda CRV's back there daily without issue. Fully fenced 6 foot secure and private green space. Large open lot with seating and plenty of room to play fetch or just relax off leash. Easy street parking, no permit required. Any Extras will be located in the storage bin on the east wall of the lot. We have evening hours 6:00p to 9:30p for Members Only, 7 days per week.

    According to the app, my dog & I have been to Tiva’s yard more than 40 times! We love it. Lately my dog has been infatuated with patrolling the yard to make sure the birds don’t get in. The bird feeder was a great addition to the yard.. it keeps my girl very busy! Sara is always responsive if we ever need anything! Thanks for providing a consistent place for my dog to feel safe & confident!

    Host replied: We love sharing our space with amazing dog families like yours! Thank you both for consistently being such wonderful guests & always taking great care of the shared space! We were so excited to hear your girl enjoyed the bird feeder enrichment! lol

We are dog lovers that have an extra soft spot for dogs that might not be comfortable around other dogs enough to share off leash space so are happy to share our space with others. :) I volunteer at a local animal shelter and some of my biggest loves there have been dogs that prefer humans over other dogs. I am always extra grateful to the people who adopt our less dog social dogs, so I'm hoping Tiva's yard can help those families have a little extra fun. <3

Grass and rain: Please keep in mind that during moderate to heavy rains the area without mulch can get muddy. Beginning May of 2024, we will post pictures daily to our Instagram account showing the condition of the spot. As you can imagine, due to the wear and tear the spot gets, it’s difficult to keep the grass alive. However, we do our best to reseed during the spring. BarkPark sits right across the street from The Salvation Army Freedom Center. This spot is fully fenced (chain link and wood) with the side facing the sidewalk being 5ft and the rest of the fence being 6ft. There is a dual-gate entrance to the spot for a safe entry and exit. Street parking is available. There is plenty of seating at this spot with shade throughout the day. There's a rain barrel filled with water for dogs to hydrate and cool down. We have water bowls available. GIANT sandbox that's great for digging and playing; no digging allowed elsewhere. On hot days, we do our best to wet the sand. Trash can onsite. We have poop bags available in two different areas for easy access. Half of this spot is covered with grass and the other half with playground mulch. This spot is big enough to get a good fetch session in or to just let the zoomies out. We also recently added agility equipment. We hope you and your four-legged friend/s have an exceptional time during your visit and choose to come back. Lost toys and items: Due to the amount of visits we get we aren’t able to track which items belong to which guest. If you’ve lost a dog toy or other item, please reach out and we’ll do our best to retrieve it and hold it for you. If you don’t reach out, we’ll add it to the Lost and Found Toy Box. Water: The dog drinking water gets changed 1-2 times per week, depending on the temperature/usage. During the winter months we remove the water from the barrel. If your dog/s require water during the winter months, we ask that you please bring water for them. Future additions: We hope to add more amenities over time. Our plans are to add more sand to the sandbox in late April or early May of 2024. We’re also hoping to have on-site parking around mid summer of 2024. If you have any suggestions for amenities, we’d love to hear your feedback.
