Welcome to your community page!

The contest is off to an amazing start with over 300 communities nominated in the first 24 hours! This community page will serve as your contest hub for voting, photos, events and even important notifications from the PetSafe team. We'll constantly be working on the site throughout the contest to make sure it's a smooth nominating and voting process for you. Also, please note that the vote counter can take anywhere from 5-15 min to update depending on site traffic, which is why you may not always see the vote counter increase each time you vote. Don’t worry, it will but may just take a few minutes. Thanks for participating and best of luck to your community!

Is anyone else having a problem voting on Facebook. I click on I'm not a robot, then click vote. The new tally that comes up is the same as before I tried to vote.

Jack Rothman

We are almost to 4,000. We can get to 4,500 today if everyone votes! We are the only town in New England, and even the Mid-Atlantic states , still in the running. Let's show the rest of the country what we can do!

It doesn't look like they have the Friday Sniff Out this year. We would love to post more pics on our page here (including photos of Hanz), but there seems to be a technical issue with the functionality. Thanks everyone for your support!!!! WE LOVE YOU :)

Merrimack Nh has been trying to have a dog park for a while and there is a great group of volunteers working hard on this effort as there a need. My favorite pet store supports this and the future site is part of a nice park.

Ginny Martin

I think the easiest way to vote on Facebook is to vote here first, then right under where it says "Thank you for voting today" it says "Vote again on Facebook" If you click the work "Facebook" it will take you right to voting there!

Pamela Skovira

If you click on the PetSafe Facebook Tab up top it'll take you to the page then just click on "Bark For Your Park" under the dog's picture and go from there. Get everyone doing it!!!

Kathy Fulmer

You can vote twice once on the website and once on Facebook! After you vote on the website it even tells you to vote on Facebook.

Pamela O'Neil

Holly - In today's Telegraph it said that the general public could vote twice per day, but check the rules as I believe it said voters could only vote once per day or else if more than once the votes wouldn't be counted. The doggy park is a great thing, and I don't want any votes to be lost. Let me know if I am mistaken! Pam O'Neil, Milford, NH
