LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The National Park Service's B.A.R.K. Ranger program for dogs is now in the Las Vegas area.
A local national monument is better off thanks to a group of new bark rangers that were sworn in today at Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument.
Officials say being a B.A.R.K. ranger is a pledge for dogs and their owners to follow park guidelines and preserve the park's delicate ecosystem.
The bark in B.A.R.K. Ranger stands for:
- Bag your pet's waste.
- Always leash your pet.
- Respect wildlife.
- Know where you can go
.Dogs that complete the program get a certificate and a special B.A.R.K. Ranger collar tag.
