Who We Are

The Bayfield People & Canine Community (P.A.C.C.) is a group of responsible dog owners and volunteers seeking an outdoor space in our community to socialize and play off leash.

We rely on members, volunteers and support from the local community to continue growth and development of this off-leash dog park. We welcome collaboration with all residents, dog owners, businesses, and organizations to work toward this shared public benefit.

Mission

The Bayfield P.A.C.C. exists to create opportunities for exercise and socialization for people and their dogs; enhance positive relationships between dog owners and the community, and promote responsible dog ownership through educational and recreational activities.

Vision

The Bayfield P.A.C.C. envisions a safe, inclusive, and well-maintained off-leash environment for canine and human residents and visitors to Bayfield.

Values

The Bayfield P.A.C.C is guided and inspired by the following values:

Community

We believe that dogs and their humans benefit from socialization. Opportunities for dogs to interact with one another is an essential part of their healthy development. People build new, and strengthen existing, relationships with one another while watching their pups play.

Self-Responsibility & Respect

We recognize the responsibility we have for ourselves and our pets. Our members are committed to picking up after our animals and cleaning up other waste. We are responsible for the behaviour of our animals and for providing adequate exercise and social development opportunities for our pets.

Safety

We believe that dogs need a secured and fenced-in place where they can run free, play, and train with each other and their owners. A designated, organized area with rules and etiquette improves safety for dogs and humans alike!

Wellbeing

We believe that dogs and their owners benefit from daily exercise, time outside, and interaction with others. An accessible and inclusive off-leash park provides opportunities for outdoor recreation for all human and canine residents and visitors.

Education & Training

We know that in addition to exercise, dogs require training and other care. First-time dog owners, visitors to Bayfield, and others benefit from a community of support through the sharing of tips, tricks, experiences, and local resources online and in person.

Giving Back

We love where we live, work, and play and it’s important to us to contribute to a vibrant and sustainable community. The Bayfield P.A.C.C. participates in a variety of events, like Earth Day clean-ups, and other opportunities.
