The 100-yard on-site private dog area is available to apartment tenants only and is included in the cost of the monthly rental fee. For any tenants wishing for Fido's best canine pals to join him for a day of fun, non-residents may also enjoy the park with their dogs if they are accompanied by a Birch Hills tenant.
Also contained in the Birch Hills Apartment Complex property is an outdoor kennel section. This permits owners the luxury of allowing their dogs to enjoy some fresh air while they run some errands in town. The dog run area is equipped with showers where owners can give Fido a bath to rinse off the dirt and grime that may gather in his coat from all of his running and roughhousing.
Water is also provided on the property as well as poop bags. Though Washington state law also requires owners to be responsible for the cleanup of their pets' messes, it is also one of the core tenets of Birch Hills' tenant agreement for dog-owning families.
There are no breeds forbidden from this park; however, references from a previous landlord are required for tenancy as well as access to the dog play area. The management of this forward-thinking apartment complex also requires proof of up to date vaccinations via a vet record. City licensing is highly recommended as well.
It is important to note that dog park access is only available to dogs that are spayed or neutered. What could be better than a dog park right in your very own backyard? If you're looking for a new place to live that really "gets" the meaning of "pet-friendly," Birch Hills Apartments Complex and its accompanying dog park is the place for you!
