Sedona AZ (March 31, 2021) – On April 15, 2021, Yappy Hour will switch to the summer schedule of 8 to 9 a.m. every Thursday through October.
The Yappy Hour program provides the opportunity for your four-legged friend to run and socialize with other dogs and is held every Thursday, weather permitting, on the multi-use field in Posse Grounds Park. Per city code and park rules, dogs are not allowed on the athletic fields and are required to be on a leash but during Yappy Hour, participants get to bend those rules.
For the safety of participants, the following COVID-19 considerations and safety protocols have been implemented:
- Dog owners must physically distance at least six feet and if not able maintain distance, should wear a mask, consistent with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations.
- If dog owners are not feeling well or experiencing any COVID-19/flu-like symptoms, stay home.
- Dog toys and other equipment is not permitted.
- Dog owners should wash their hands before and after Happy Hour.
Important tips to remember and share with fellow dog owners so that the program continues: do not arrive prior to start time; dogs and owners will not be allowed on the field until 8 a.m.; all dog park rules apply; and owners are responsible for the safety and behavior of their dogs, picking up after their pets and observing city code and park rules outside of program hours. If there are multiple violators using the fields during non-program hours, this program will be discontinued.
