What is Yappy Hour? 

It is a friendly dog and owner social hour on the multi-use soccer field at Posse Grounds Park. It gives the dogs a chance to run around off-leash on the green grass in an enclosed field for 1 hour every Thursday. 

City Code and Park Rules Are "Bent" For Yappy Hour

 

Normally, City Code and Park Rules require all dogs to be on a leash and to stay off all athletic fields.  As the City of Sedona has stated, "during this event we get to bend the rules!" Also, the Sedona Dog Park located just down the hill at 950 Soldiers Pass Rd.  is closed for cleaning during the time of "Yappy Hour".  So this way you and your pet do not have to skip a beat during exercise time!

For Your Enjoyment...

There are some basic common courtesies and rules that must be observed for the enjoyment of all who participate. 

PLEASE NOTE: the multi-use soccer field is not a dog park. Watch for gaps in the fence where a pet or your pet could potentially squeeze through.  Small dogs and large dogs will be playing in the same areas.  There are no divided areas. Owners are responsible for the safety and behavior of their dogs.

  • Owners must pick up after their pets.
  • Dog Park Rules apply to Yappy Hour: 
      • Use is at your own risk 
      • Dogs must have current vaccinations and city license
      • All owners must clean up after dogs
      • Non-neutered males and females in heat are not permitted 
      • Excessive barking is not permitted - the City of Sedona, Article 9-4-10E   
      • Owners must be with dogs at all times  
      • Dogs must be collared 
      • Dogs must be on a leash when coming in and out of the park
      • Dog treats are not permitted 
      • Children under 12 not permitted unless accompanied by an adult. Infants and toddlers are not recommended
      • No glass containers or alcohol in the park 
      • Weapons of any kind not permitted 
      • Smoking is not permitted 
      • Aggressive dogs are not permitted on-premises. Dogs must be removed at the first signs of aggression.

This is an opportunity to enjoy a fun time with others who want their pets to be social. 

Please Note: If the Parks and Recreation Department finds that there are people taking advantage of allowing off-leash dogs roam the park or athletic fields during non-event times, this event may be canceled. 

NOTE: All information presented including, event scheduling, directions and pricing are deemed reliable but not guaranteed.

Hi Sheri... Charlotte is a big "dog town." And I live in a neighborhood where I'm convinced the dog and cat population outnumber us humans!

How fabulous, and what a cute name for it, "Yappy Hour."  Mac would like to attend this event. Although, we have a large fenced acre for him to roam at home.

Hi Grant Schneider - Sedona does have wild animals, in my opinion, small animals may not be safe in their own yard. Most owners either walk their dogs or watch them and bring them back inside.

Hi Will Hamm - This Sedona Dog Park has been around a long time.  However, about 3 years ago, the park was completely refurbished at a cost of ½ million dollars.

Hi Joan Cox

I pass by the dog park every day and see the number of cars at different times. Most people visit in the am and then back in the pm.  The noon hour is fairly light.

What can we do for you today?

Good morning to all, Yappy hour what a beautiful time this would be. 

Our parks here are not designed just for a pup that I am aware of. Although we are a much smaller community and most of the time just take a walk in the Back40 on our own land. Or we can head out to the lake and walk along the shores. This is something that is on our list of to-do items soon.
