The Veteran's Dog Park, or Harrison Dog Park, is an off-leash dog park in the town of Harrison, New York. This dog park is located behind the Veterans Memorial Park and has a large parking lot. Before using this facility to exercise their fur babies off-leash, owners need to apply for a dog park membership. The annual fee for residents of Harrison is $20. Limited places are available for non-residents at the cost of $50.
Before being eligible for a dog park membership, all dogs must have a New York State license. This should be presented at the Town Clerk's Office along with the pup's most recent vaccination and neutering or spaying certificates. It is not a requirement to present the paperwork in person; it can also be done via fax or snail mail. Proof of identity plus proof of address should be supplied at the same time.
Once the application has been approved, an access card is issued. This Harrison dog park has individual compounds for large and small dogs. They need to measure up in both weight and stature. Mini mutts must measure less than fourteen inches or weigh less than twenty-five pounds. The vital statistics for the big dogs are over fourteen inches high and weighing more than twenty-five pounds.
If pups go through a growth spurt or put on weight, owners may need to consider changing their access card for a different off-leash zone. Members or not, dogs need to have the correct attitude in the off-leash areas. Their owners are responsible for making sure they behave socially with their fellow canines as well as human visitors to the dog park.
A pup owner's other duty in the Veteran's Dog Park in Harrison is to clean up their pooches poo. Ignoring a pet's turds and leaving them laying around could land an owner in a spot of trouble. Yes, the town clerk has everyone's name and address, so there is no getting away with not scooping poop here.
