Trophy Club is full of friendly folks who want to do the right thing. That’s the Trophy Club way!

First, remove your dog from the situation. Second, (if it is safe) politely tell the dog's owner that you feel their dog is aggressive and ask them to take some action to control their dog or leave the park. If you do not feel safe or a polite request has no effect, call 911. It is up to users of Freedom Dog Park to police each other in a friendly manner to keep our dog park safe for all.
