This sounds like such a great place Steph.  I wish we had something like this closer to us.  What town is this in?  I would absolutely love to work in a place like this.  This is my dream (when I win the lottery!!!).  I want to open a place like this and start a no kill animal shelter.  Guess I can just keep dreaming  :fingers_crossed:

Lisa - that is a wonderful dream.   :yes:

Hate to chime in -I'm against dog parks too--I have never and never will take Kirby to one. For all the reasons listed--diseases, aggressive other dogs on the loose and stupid owners that don't have control of their dogs at all.
You can get all the socialization you need by classes, taking your pup to stores that allow them and walks in towns that are dog friendly--stopping & sitting for wine or coffee--these pups naturally draw a lot of attention so you will get alot of socialization opportunities. Also,on walks to parks--taking advantage of watching kids soccer games, etc.--so your pup gets use to seeing kids running/yelling etc.--letting them pet your pup while you have them in a sit command. I know that some people are fans of dog parks--but I never will be.
