Our community needs a PetSafe dog park!

Welcome to Happy Tails Dog Park of the Lakes Region's page for the Bark For Your Park contest. We have land the city of Laconia will allow us to use for the park, but we need money to build it, so winning this would really help. Anyone can vote for us, or use the park when it's open, you don't have to live in Laconia. So please vote for us! Scroll down to see more park info and to post a picture of your dog!!

Messages From PetSafe

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!

Good luck, Laconia, from your neighbors to your South (Merrimack, NH). Looks like we have some healthy competition going on between our two towns. I hope we both make it to the finals :)

Ginny Martin

200 Votes! Let's keep it going!! We can do it! Remind your friends and family they can vote every day at two places!! We did great the first two days but if everyone who voted then voted every day since then we'd be way more than 200!! Thanks for your support!!
