There are some great dog parks in Muncie, Indiana. One of the best is the ARF Bark Park. This superb dog park in Muncie, which is owned and maintained by the Animal Rescue Fund, does have an annual fee which is payable before pet owners can use the facility.
All monies raised from the dog park memberships goes towards the upkeep of the ARF Park (Animal Rescue Fund Dog Park) and to help look after the animals in their care. $50 a year is a small price when it goes to helping such a good cause. The charge is per household, not per dog.
For visitors to Muncie who have a dog which needs a runaround, there's a minimal $5 daily fee. Before dogs can be let loose here, their owners need to complete a questionnaire on their pups health and characteristics, plus sign a waiver form. They also need to provide proof of vaccinations, neutering and de-worming.
The ARF Bark Park in Muncie is a lovely big grass field with lots of mature trees. The off-leash area covers around an acre of ground in total, so there's more than enough space for plenty of dogs to get in some serious canine socializing together. If a dog prefers to investigate and explore on their own, they can do that too.
The same as any other dog park in Muncie, the ARF Bark Park has rules. This off-leash area is a big one, and it's easy for dogs to soon put some distance between them and their owners. It's essential to keep an eye on pups and helpful if they respond to at least the most basic vocal commands.
Keeping up with their dogs is a must for all dog owners when it comes to poop scooping too. You must do your part to pick up after Woof. Removing poop rapidly helps keep the ARF Park of the off-leash area not only bacteria free, but clean and safe for both pups and owners.
