    I think this is a beautiful thing and see so much value in it. I am feeling disappointed that this isn’t like other dog parks, however, that don’t have membership limits and a wait list to get in. 250 dogs doesn’t even scratch the surface of dogs and their owners in the Carmel area. There are 85,000 people in Carmel. In the United States, approximately 40% of households own a dog. That is 34,000 dogs, if you guess 1 dog per household. I understand we can’t fit all 34,000 dogs into one park, but only serving less than 1% of the dog population in Carmel seems…odd. All those resources for so little benefit. OK, that’s my rant for the day. Just had to get that off my chest. I do think it’s an awesome attempt and hope we see more dog parks pop up due to the obvious demand. Thank you.
