    • Yes – all dogs must be registered with Carlisle Area Dog Parks. If you are visiting from out of the area we can arrange for your dogs to play once we have documentation of their neutering, Rabies and Bordatella vaccinations and a current license.

  1. Is there Breed Restrictions for the Park? My wife and I are currently in the process of purchasing our first home in Carlisle and we’re probably going to rescue a Pit Bull at some point.

    • No breed restrictions! All dogs who “Play Well with Others” are welcome. We have a Canine Coach who can help but we have a strict “No Aggression” rule.
