Beverly’s Bark Park, located at Beverly’s Precious Pet Inn off of Promise Road, is a beautifully landscaped four-acre bark park. Many anxious tail-wagging dogs attended this free social gathering sniffing, barking and pulling their leashes taut. Their owners also enjoyed mingling with each other.
Kevin and Robin DeTrude, owners of Beverly’s Precious Pet Inn, are friendly, down-to-earth people who work together with their children, Michael and Elizabeth. Kevin has dreamed of opening this Bark Park for some time.
“I couldn’t be more proud of my husband. To have his vision finally come true and to be a part of this process has been wonderful!” Robin said.
A couple areas are available for dogs and their owners to visit depending on their body weight (that is, the dog’s body weight). The smaller courtyard is designed for dogs weighing 0 to 25 lbs. The larger portion of the park is intended for dogs weighing over 25 lbs., however, all dogs can go to this bigger area (at the owner’s discretion), consisting of a gazebo with benches built around the perimeter. The entire park is filled with green, luscious grass and huge boulders to accent the beautiful landscaping.
T-shirts, dog treats and cold water were given away by IndyPaws.com to help celebrate the grand opening. Also, Beverly’s Precious Pet Inn gave away coupons for boarding and an annual membership to the Bark Park.
“It’s nice to ‘unleash’ something that I have worked so hard on for two years,” said Kevin DeTrude. “I hope the community enjoys the park as much as I have enjoyed bringing the park to the community.”
