The Sue and Dick Levy Dog Park

Voted Best Dog Park 2010
[object Object]

The member’s only dog park at Humane Society Silicon Valley’s Animal Community Center is Silicon Valley’s first park for savvy and sophisticated dogs and their owners!  This clean, regularly-maintained turf-park boasts:

  • separate play areas for small and large dogs,
  • multiple double-entry gates for park safety,
  • contoured rolling hill topography,
  • play pools with fresh water,
  • clean-up stations,
  • abundant parking close to the parks, and
  • picnic benches covered by umbrellas. 

The goal of the member’s only dog park at our new Animal Community Center is to provide a fun, social, and safe play environment for dogs and their people! To help achieve this goal, all canine dog park members have been screened for friendly, social behavior toward people and other dogs.

The parks are open 7 days a week, 365 days a year!  Regular hours of operation are:
Weekdays from 7am - 10am and 2pm - 8pm
Weekends from 8am - 8pm

 
On occasion, the parks may be closed for severe weather (e.g. heat waves, thunder-storms) as well as special events.  In such cases of park closures, members will be given advance notice via our HSSV ACC Park Online Community.  

 

Membership Requirements

To be considered for membership, dogs must:

  • be spayed or neutered,
  • be current on their vaccinations (DA2PP, Bordatella, and Rabies*),
  • have had a clean fecal examination with giardia test** within the past 6-months, and
  • be at least four months old.

Also, to be considered for membership, all dogs must pass a basic behavior screening*** that looks for friendly and social behaviors to be displayed with people and other dogs. Dogs that are aggressive toward people or other dogs, are excessively under-socialized or fearful, or are frustrated by barriers like fences or leashes may not be good candidates for membership. Dogs with such challenges are encouraged to go through the screening process, but may receive behavior modification or management recommendations from our Behavior & Training Team. It is our goal to ensure all member dogs will benefit from the dog park experience!

*A Rabies Titer Test may be substituted for a current rabies vaccination.
**Fecal Examinations with Giardia tests help to ensure that your dog does not have common parasites that can be transmitted through feces. A special price for this test in our Medical Clinic is offered to The Sue and Dick Levy Dog Park Members. 

***Behavior screenings are held by appointment every other Wednesday evening. Our staff will contact you once we have reviewed your dog's application to arrange this appointment.
