Yard Rules & FAQ

All dogs gotta have them!

Why are memberships required? Memberships help create the safest and healthiest environment for our four-legged friends.

Humans are FREE! Humans are welcome to come by for a drink, from our full-service bar, without a dog. You must sign an online waiver.
