1. The owner or handler is legally responsible for any damage or injury caused by their dog(s).
2. Dogs must be on leash in the parking lot.
3. Dogs must be under control of their handler when off leash. Basic control means the owner or handler is aware of their dog’s conduct and location, and it returns when called.
Owner/handler must carry a leash for each dog at all times.
4. Dogs must be over four months, collared, licensed and vaccinated, to play off leash.
We encourage Bordatella & DHLPPC vaccinations from your local veterinarian.
5. Dogs in heat or breeding condition are not allowed into any off leash area.
6. Dogs showing aggression to people or other dogs must be restrained, or removed from park.
7. Pick up your Dog’s Poo! The only acceptable place to “leave it” is in the trash. Remember, people act poopy when they step in doggy doo- dy. So please bring a bag or two to pick up doggy poo and dispose of it properly.
Help others enjoy this park by being attentive to your dog and considerate of all.
1. Please keep your dog (s) out of the play grounds and occupied picnic areas. Allow others without dogs to enjoy the park.
2. If you are asked to restrain your dog because another owner is uncomfortable with rough play, or its behavior, promptly act upon the request by moving your dog to another area of the park, giving your dog a time-out, leashing, or whatever will effectively solve the situation. Sometimes it may be necessary to leave the park and work on training your dog.
3. Be prepared to share toys, and if your dog borrows a toy make sure you return it to the owner before either of you leave the park.
4. Ask permission before offering treats to an- other person’s dog. Some dogs have special diets, others can be food protective when be- ing fed.
5. Fill and level any holes you find in the turf including gopher holes. Leave the park better then when you arrived.
6. Drive attentively when entering or exiting the park. There may be children at play.
Children Playing With Dogs
At all times, both children and dogs should be supervised by an adult when in the park.
1. Children should be closely monitored when around dogs.
2. Ask permission of the dog owner or handler before touching or feeding any dog.
3. Dogs use their mouths to test out the environment, so keep a hand between your mouth and theirs. Otherwise you may get your doggy slobbered.
Getting Ready for the Park!
1. Before your first off leash visit to any place, train your dog the basic commands, “Down!”, “Come”, and “Leave it!”
2. Dogs must be socialized on leash to the following forms of stimulus: bikes, skateboards, runners and other dogs on leash. The Moraga Commons Park is a good place to test how your dog behaves around such stimuli while still on leash.
3. Before letting your dog out of the car, please have everything you need especially poo bags.
To help you, your dog, and others have an enjoyable visit during the limited off leash hours at this multi-use park.
