The Raab Dog Park is in the Frank Raab Municipal Park in the town of Poulsbo, Washington. Vehicles may be parked in the lot of the main park, which is a short walk from the dog park. Pet owners wishing to use the facility must keep their dogs leashed until inside the designated off-leash area. This dog park has been fully enclosed with chain link fencing and has a special section for small dogs.
The off-leash area is surfaced with grass though there are some patches of dirt and gravel. There are also plenty of trees for shade and some boulders are strewn around. The dog park is otherwise open to the elements and the ground can become sodden after heavy rainfall. There is a dog-friendly water fountain installed in the off-leash area and a hose. The fresh water supply is seasonal and owners are recommended to take water for their dog during the winter months.
All dogs using the dog park must be licensed with the Poulsbo authorities and have their vaccinations current. Dogs must be six months of age and older to enter the park. It is not permitted to leave any dog unattended inside the off-leash area. Dogs should be kept in eye contact all of the time. Any dog showing anti-social behavior toward humans or other dogs must be removed from the off-leash area straight away. Dogs with a known history of aggression should be kept muzzled while exercising in the dog park.
There are poop bag dispensers on-site and owners are requested to fully comply with poop scooping regulations. Owners are obliged to pick up all faecal matter and deposit used poop bags in the containers provided. Not only does this help maintain the dog park in good conditions for all users, but helps prevent the spread of infections.
