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.
