The 2014 Dog Park Permits will go on sale on Friday, November 1, 2013. The application is now available online at http://louisvilledogs.netfirms.com/application.html.

Please note that during November permits will only be sold at local Feeders Supply stores. We will begin doing "mail in" applications on December 1. So gather up your vaccination and registration information, fill out the application and go to your nearest Feeders Supply store to ahead and get your 2014 permit.
OLDHAM COUNTY UPDATE
First of all, we are happy to announce the dog park which will be located in Wendell Moore Park in Buckner will be called the Elizabeth Cleland Cauley Dog Park. We anticipate the park being open some time before the end of November. All of this hinges on a small paving project which Oldham County Parks & Recreation is overseeing. Once the paving project is completed the fence can go up, and once the fence is up we can install the gate equipment. In the meantime, you can buy a 2014 dog park permit for Elizabeth Cleland Cauley Dog Park and begin using it as soon as it opens (and enjoy the off-leash areas in Louisville).
The Waverly Dog Run project is officially a go! We are currently working with Louisville Metro Parks and Metro Council District 25 Representative David Yates on the proposed layout for the facility. Once the layout is completed we'll need to do a little clearing work to make room for the fence, bridge a small drainage ditch and prep the area. Our guess is that this park will be ready to open closer to the end of the year/early next year (weather permitting, of course). So please be sure to check back later for more details. The Waverly Dog Run is an option on the 2014 application so if you want to go ahead and get your permit for the first dog run in Southwest Louisville you can do it!
BARKLANDS WEATHER UPDATES
We have received several emails from people who have gone to The Barklands only to see it is closed because of weather. 21st Century Parks has authority over whether the dog runs are open or not due to weather conditions. They have informed us that if there has been a good amount of rain they will close the parks to prevent excessive damage to the turf. Weather updates will be posted on the following page:
So please save this in your favorites on your computers, phones, ipads, etc. and check it before you head over that way.
