USE OF THE PET WALK

1.  Enter the Pet Walk at the Entrance Gate closest to Broadway.
    Exit the Pet Walk at the Exit Gate closest to the back of the 300 block of Aero lots.
    The reason for this is to keep the strong odor away from the back of the Aero residences.  Also, by using the correct entrance/exit, the pets continue to flow and                 avoid a pet in/out issue.

2.  Always pick up after your pet as soon as possible.  Do not bury any dog dung/poop.  Use a bag to pick up and dispose of the waste.

3.  There are bags provided at the entrance and exit of the Pet walk.  The bags in the plastic containers are clean and there for you to use.  Once the bags are used, place     them in the garbage containers in the ground. please. do not put them back in the clean bag container.

4.  Please feel free to use the chairs provided to relax, visit with other pet owners and enjoy our wonderful Pet Walk.  There are 2 separate fenced areas, either can be
        used.

5.  If you have questions, comments, or concerns, please make sure to attend them monthly Pet association meetings.  They are held the first Tuesday of each month
