Back by popular demand . . .

We are so happy to bring you a FREE agility demo again this year. Our events were so well received last year and with so many new members this year, we know the slots will fill up quickly. So – if you want to get some “paws on” experience please reserve your slot today by going to our sign up page:

SWCDP upgraded our agility course last season and we are proud to have one of the best dog park agility courses in the area. On top of that – we have a long-standing member who is a fantastic agility trainer, Betsy Boedeker. Betsy will offer her services free of charge for two training events.

Sunday, July 29, 9:00am to 11:00am
Saturday, August 4, 9:00am to 11:00am

Whether you are interested in developing agility skills as a robust and ever popular dog sport or simply want to learn some quick tips for enjoying the course as a diversion from regular playground activities – this course will provide valuable info.

Attached are Betsy’s Agility Tips. You do not need to become proficient in ANY of this in order to participate in the Agility Demo. The tips are for your general knowledge and is a great referral resource. Keep it with you for quick reference.


We will send members who sign up for agility an email the day before the event. We will give you an exact time for your “slot” and further instructions. We have limited slots available, so if interested, please sign up quickly. And, if your plans change, please notify Judi so she can allow another member to have your slot.


We will have plenty of water for the dogs; bring plenty of water for yourself. Everyone needs to stay hydrated. Unless pouring rain we will hold the event as planned.


In order to keep our course in good shape and keep it viable as a key dog park amenity – we need members to help with the care of the area. Our grass cutters are not supposed to move the equipment prior to cutting the grass. It is up to us.

Contact Judi or Joan if you can help, either Monday evenings or Tuesday mornings. The equipment must be moved so contractors can cut Tuesday mornings and then equipment put back in place afterwards.

Our goal is to have a small team who can take turns and rotate the tasks so the work does not fall on only a couple folks. PLEASE help us out.


Joan just sent out tag #601 – this is the highest dog count we have ever had this early in a season. Hope everyone is enjoying the park.

We ask that everyone remember to be courteous, watch your dog at all times, and make decisions that are good for our dog park community. If you see a problem brewing – talk it out with the members before things escalate.
