Owners are legally responsible for their dogs and any injury or loss caused by their dogs, including injuries to people and other dogs. City of Henderson is not responsible for injuries to visiting dogs, their owners and others using the park.
Exercising your dog on a leash prior to bringing your dog into the dog park gives your dog a chance to expel extra energy. Dog parks are a supplement to a dogs source of exercise and not a sole source of exercise or socialization.
All dogs must be leashed prior to entering the park itself and exiting designated dog park areas.
Please pay attention to your dog’s behavior and limit your phone use and other distractions. Owners should be able to recognize negative behaviors in their own dogs so that they can intervene and remove their dog from a potentially negative situation or experience.
