Sept. 16, 2013 was a happy day for dogs in Pelham, Ala. as Roverchase opened a brand-new, 10,000 square foot indoor dog park. Rain or shine, Pelham pooches can enjoy the great indoors off leash with their owners and hundreds of other puppy pals. Roverchase is family owned and operated, boasting over 35 years of professional dog experience.
According to their website, "Roverchase offers obedience and behavior modification training, daycare, and lavish accommodations in an chic, fresh, innovative environment". Indoor dog parks are a popular attraction in many larger cities, including Portland, Milwaukee, Cambridge, and New York City.
Visitors are invited to register online before their first visit to begin the placement process. Upon arrival, dogs are temperament tested to place them in the most compatible play group. A certified professional dog behavior specialist personally oversees each dog's evaluation and acceptance.
The indoor off-leash dog park portion of Roverchase is open Monday-Friday from 6pm to 8pm, Saturday from 12pm to 6pm, and Sunday from 12pm-6pm. Roverchase also offers obedience training, grooming and doggie daycare. Single visits cost $5 each, or a 10-visit punch card can be purchased for $25.
