Bark in the Park

Posted on 9/2/2011 by Rebecca Woodcock

Bark in the Park

Please join the Humane Societies of Forsyth and Davie Counties at beautiful Tanglewood Park on Saturday, October 1st from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm for the Bark in the Park. This will be a fun day for both dogs and their owners! It is designed to promote awareness of the new Dog Park at Tanglewood coming in 2012.

Participate in the Humane Society of Davie County’s Doggie Jog, and the Blessing of the Animals for a $15 donation. Talk with local vets, get training tips from professional trainers, and have your pet bathed and treated at the mobile doggie spa. There will be agility demonstrations, contests, and lots of prizes for you and your dog!

Local adoption and rescue agencies will also be on hand if you are looking to add another member to your family. The Dog Park at Tanglewood is a great way to socialize, and to get your kids outdoors and away from their TV and video games.

Attending and sponsoring this event are Classics Grill, Carvel Ice Cream, Barkley Manor, Anne Grant Photography, Carolina Poodle Rescue, Humane Solutions (rescue), AARF (rescue and adoption), Robin Brock (nail trimming), Lisa Busko (alternative therapy), Advanced K9’s (Theilboll and agility show), and Petsmart (obedience training).

The Dog Park at Tanglewood Committee is made up of local community volunteers with a common mission: have a Dog Park built at beautiful Tanglewood Park in Clemmons. The land has been allocated, and the committee is raising funds to build the park. Once built, it will be maintained by Tanglewood Park and provide fun for the entire family for many years to come!
