Training Area Rentals

The CDA is thrilled to announce that Feathers & Tails Pet Care will be renting the "training area" from 8am to 5pm on weekdays, starting July 22, 2019. Although they might not be present during that entire period, every day, the training area has been rented to them for their use only. This means that when they are present, that area is CLOSED for normal park use. We appreciate everyone's cooperation by leaving that area if trainees do show up.
