Bark Park

Want to take your pet to the local dog park, but you’re unsure if it’s safe? While dogs are required to be healthy and current on their vaccinations, this cannot always be guaranteed. At Veterinary Healthcare Associates, we’re very excited to offer our Bark Park here in Winter Haven where dogs can run, play, and make friends in a secure space with minimal risk. That’s because our dog park is for members only, and to obtain a membership, your pet needs to be up-to-date with their vaccinations.
Why Dogs Need to Socialize
Dogs are social animals that feel most at home with their ‘pack.’ Therefore, like people, they need social interactions and plenty of activity to stay happy and healthy. Membership at our dog park will give you the chance to spend more quality time with your companion and improve their lifestyle.
