Brevard Dog Park Rules

  •  Dog Park opens from Sunrise to Sunset daily.

  • No animals other than dogs may be brought into the fenced area.

  • All dogs must be leashed until safely inside the dog park and returned to a leash prior to exiting.

  • Dog owners must remain in the fenced area while their dogs are using the dog park.  Owners must be in view of their dogs and have voice control at all times.

  • Spectators should remain outside the fenced area.

  • Aggressive dogs and female dogs in heat are not allowed.  Owners must immediately leash and remove dogs from the dog park at the first sign of aggressive behavior.

  • Owners must dispose of waste properly in the designated on-site containers.

  • While small bite-sized training treats are permitted, food in bowls, long-lasting chews and toys other than balls and frisbees are not allowed.

  • Smoking, vaping, chewing tobacco and eating are not allowed inside the dog park.

  • No more than two (2) dogs per person are allowed on any single visit.

  • Puppies less than four (4) months old are not permitted.

  • Owners are liable for any injury or damage caused by their dog and are fully responsible for their dogs actions.

  • North Carolina State Law requires all dog bites to be reported.  Call Brevard Police Department at 828-883-2212.  If it is an emergency dial 911.  In addition, owners are required to assist in the investigation of incidents of aggression or biting by providing appropriate identification and information to Transylvania and or/ Brevard Animal Control Officers, AND to other dog owners who are involved with the incident under investigation.

  • Children accompanying dog owners must be strictly supervised and at least 12 years old to be allowed inside.

  • Please be courteous to others and remove any sick dogs from the dog park.

  • Dogs must be vaccinated for rabies and DHLPP.  Current identification and rabies tag must be worn on the dog’s collar at all times.

  • Small dogs are 25 pounds and under.

  • Each dog owner assumes all liability for damages by anyone who is bitten or injured by their dog or any other dog under their care while using the dog park.  Dog Park participation is at your own risk.

Designating an area where dog guardians can allow their animals to run off-leash successfully remedies this problem in parks where the concept has been introduced. Violations of the leash law and subsequent public complaints have decreased; and dog guardians have a place to legally exercise their pets. Off-leash areas allow dog guardians to be law-abiding, easing the burden of enforcement on animal control officers and freeing them to do more important work, such as animal rescue and control of dangerous animals.
