The Burns Dog Park is an area of the Burns Park in North Little Rock, Arizona, reserved for exercising dogs off-leash. This dog park is a massive three acres of wooded ground divided into three individual sections. There are separate off-leash areas for small, medium, and large dogs. Each respective part is one acre in size. The dog park has an amply sized parking lot adjacent to the entrance.
All three off-leash areas of the Burns Dog Park have been completely enclosed with chain mesh fencing and provide a secure environment for dogs to run free. Dogs must be kept leashed in all other areas of the public park. Each off-leash area has a double-gated staging area.
The ground coverage is mostly a mix of grass, dirt and fallen leaves. All sections of the dog park have abundant trees which provide both shade and dog diversion. There is also some hurdle-type agility equipment for dog training. However, owners cannot exercise more than two dogs at a time.
Puppies below the age of four months are not permitted. Pitbull or Pitbull crossbreeds are also not granted access into the park. All dogs must be licensed and have completed their vaccinations before entering the off-leash facility. Dogs must also have up to date treatments for parasites such as ticks and fleas.
Pet owners must keep their dogs under close supervision when in the off-leash areas. This includes visual contact and voice control. Children under twelve years can only go into the off-leash area when accompanied by an adult and must be prevented from running, screaming, or shouting.
Owners are required to supply bottled water for their dog as there is none on-site. Owners should also take a drinking bowl for their dog. There are several poop bag stations in all the off-leash areas and a plentiful supply of bags. All handlers are obliged to clean up all excrement produced by their dog and dispose of it responsibly in the trash cans provided for this purpose.
