“Buffalo's only offical off-leash dog park. It has both a "small" dog area and an "all dog" area. Great view of the water and also the city.”
Depends on the day...
We have had positive and negative experiences at the Barkyard. I'd have to agree with a previous reviewer that many owners do not pay attention to their dogs. This includes: muddy dogs jumping on you, aggressive dogs not watched closely, owners not picking up after their dogs. Other days, we've had a great time playing positively with other dogs. Again, this park is as good as the saying that there are no bad dogs, only bad owners.posted: December 17th, 2011
There are rules set out, but they are not enforced at all. I spotted several adult, intact males running around, children running around in the "all dog" area, screaming and chasing their dog about (one even threw a ball at my Aunt's Great Dane, even after she clearly told them not to). Many of the dog owners paid absolutely no attention to their dogs. Needless to say, we didn't stay very long.
Love the Barkyard!
We love taking Henry to the barkyard to meet new friends and get some extra energy out!
