We have private sessions available for people who would like to have the lake all to themselves for an event like a doggy birthday party, or maybe they just want to use the lake for their own personal dogs who may not get along with other dogs but they love to swim. Or they rent the lake to use the dock to practice their dog's dock jumping skills for competition.
The lake, including the dock jumping dock is available for private rental for your use but your event must be "doggy" in nature. You can have human birthday party but it must be people with dogs. For instance a dog club wants to celebrate a human member's birthday so they have all the members bring their dogs for the party.
The fee is $50 per hour and includes admission for 8 dogs. If there are more than 8 dogs, each dog after the eighth dog is $5/per hour. So for example if you had 10 dogs attending it would be $50 plus $10 for a total of $60/hour.
If you have a large group and you want us to collect fees at the gate so you don't have to have the headache of collecting fees yourself, we can do that. Each attendee will pay $5 per dog per hour. So if your attendee brings 2 dogs for your 2 hour event the fee for that person would be $20 for the event. Please just let us know ahead of time that you wish us to collect at the gate. If we are collecting at the gate you will still be required to pay the regular hourly rate in advance to secure your date but we can refund those fees back to you after your event and the minimum fee has been met.
Advance payment required
We require all appointments to be paid in advance. You will be charged our normal hourly rate for up to 8 dogs, plus $2 processing fee. If you end up having more than 8 dogs, you can pay at the gate for the extra dogs.
Please see our cancelation policy below.
Once you contact us for the appointment we will send you a Paypal invoice. The invoice must be paid within 24 hours to secure your appointment time. If it is not paid in the alloted time and someone else inquires about the time you wanted but hadn't paid for, your appointment may be released to that person.
We generally book private dates before or after our regular public times. For instance you can rent the lake at 1 on a Saturday after our regular session ends at 1. That is not to say that if you wanted to have your private time on a Tuesday afternoon, when we have no regular public open times, you couldn't. We will make the lake available as much as we can, just ask and we will try to accommodate your date. To schedule your private session at the lake email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be courtious to the guests before and after your appointment and don't arrive and expect entry prior to the time of your appointment and please exit the park by the end time of your appointment, not after as there is generally a party waiting to use the park as you did and you would be cutting into their time. You can check available dates on the calendar page. Please read the information on how to read the calendar on its page.
If you rent the park and the weather turns bad at the lake (not your location) before your scheduled time begins and you wish to cancel, please let us know before your appointment was set to begin and we will refund your fees or apply them to another date. Unless the whole state is under rain warning please dont cancel hours in advance as the weather in Florida changes on a dime and very often it could be raining at your house but the lake is sunny. If the weather at the lake is rent-worthy and you decide to cancel, no refund or reschedule will be given. Also, if you start your appointment and at some point during your appointment, the weather turns bad no refunds or postponements will be given. Please don’t hesitate to contact us to ask what the weather is like at the lake in the hour before your appointment.
You must leave the park including the pavillions the way you found them. You must pick up after your dogs. Physical punishment of dogs (yours or someone else's) will not be tolerated and you will be asked to leave the park. We have poop bag stations as the park for your convenience. You must keep your dogs inside our park boundries. Although we do allow you to bring food to your party and set up tables and chairs and utilize the pavillions, we don't allow the use of barbeque grills or other open fire type food preparations nor do we allow glass to be used (i.e. glass bottles). Because we only have limited garbage cans at the park you must bring trash bags with you to dispose of any garbage.
CANCELATIONS: If you must cancel your private rental at the lake and you do so 48 hours prior to your appointment there will be no cancelation fee. If you cancel your appointment within 48 hours of your appointment (not due to weather) you will be charged $50, the price of the rental because we will not have time to fill your spot on the calendar. If by some chance we have a waiting list for that day and we can sell the spot we will refund your monies.
