But first, some rules

  • Entry into Chippewa Falls Happy Tails Dog Park is at the risk of the dog owners or handlers. Dog owners or handlers are responsible and liable for any damage to property, persons, or other animals caused by their dog(s)

  • All dogs must remain on leash until they are inside the park. Once the dog is off the leash, the owner or handler must have the leash with them at all times. The permit or daily use permit must be displayed at all times. Acceptable collars inside the area are flat buckle, limited slip/martingale or snap. A harness may be used instead of a collar.

  • We recommend owners/handlers shall not have more than two dogs per handler in the park at one time. All dogs shall be accompanied and supervised by an adult owner/handler at all times. Dog owners or handlers shall remove their dog(s) at the first sign of aggressive behavior.

  • The small dog area is limited to dogs weighing less than 30 pounds. This area has been created for those dog owners whose small dogs may not feel comfortable around larger dogs in the main area. If small dog owners are comfortable letting their small dog play in the large dog area, then they may do so.

  • All dogs must have current vaccinations, as required.

  • All dogs must be licensed through their municipality, town or village. A permit will not be issued to any owner without the license.

  • Do not bring a dog(s) into the park that you know to be ill with a viral infection, parasitic infection or have any open wounds.

  • All owners/handlers must pick up any waste left by their dog(s) to ensure cleanliness and to avoid potential health risks. Failure to do so may result in a loss of privileges. Waste bags have been provided, so please use them.

  • Children allowed inside Chippewa Falls Happy Tails Dog Park, but must be accompanied by an adult (18 or older).

  • Food and glass containers are not allowed inside the park. Handlers/owners using dog treats for training may bring them inside the area, but they must be kept on their person. Smoking is also prohibited with the park. Please place all litter into the provided trash receptacles.

  • Female dogs in heat may not enter the park.

  • Dogs under the age of 4 months are not permitted into the park. This is for their safety, as puppies under four months old usually do not have fully developed immune systems and have not completed a full program of vaccinations.

  • Dogs, owners/handlers, and park users creating a disturbance or violating posted rules must immediately leave the park if requested by law enforcement personnel, Chippewa Falls Happy Tails Committee personnel, or their designated agents.

  • The City of Chippewa Falls reserves the right to close the park for maintenance and repair.

  • Happy Tails Dog Park is for the use and enjoyment of dogs and their owners. Recreational use by others is not permitted.

  • NO SMOKING ALLOWED in the Park or on City Property.

  • Hours of operation: dawn to dark, 365 days a year.
