Pool Party

Yesterday we helped celebrate the grand opening of Country Kennels Dawg Water Park and it was awesome! A water park for dogs, isn't that just about the coolest place ever?! Hello summer time fun. This beautiful dog play haven is situated on rolling hills of astroturf (so no muddy paws) and features a bone shaped pool complete with a diving platform for dock jumping, fountains, and tons of space to run and play.

Excited dogs and their people started lining up before they even opened the gates, and continued to pile in all day long. Hundreds of dogs romped in the water; splashing around, jumping for toys, and playing with new friends. So many awesome dogs and their humans stopped by our Rebel booth to say hi.  We met dozens of dogs big and small, puppies and rescues, and even a sweet deaf pup named Sadie.

The water park is open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 3 to 6 p.m. for open swim. The park is also available by reservation for private parties and group swim. We can't wait to host our next doggie birthday party here!!

Dog Park Playdate

The rebel dogs love to play, no matter where it may be. But the dog park is a whole new level of play for our rowdy pups. We only recently started seeking out dog specific parks and we are already pretty hooked on Redhawk Park in Temecula, California. 

The spacious play areas are separated into big and little dog areas, and can be reconfigured into larger or smaller arenas by a series of gates. The entire park is grassy and offers shaded benches throughout for humans. There's also a dog height water fountains for thirsty canines and a plethora of balls and fetch toys strewn about. Diesel and Dakoda are getting pretty friendly with regulars.

We know dog parks aren't for every dog, so we make a point to be ultra observant of our dog's interactions with new dogs entering the park. Do your find that your dogs enjoy the dog park or are too stressed out?
