Wags at the Flags is a new concept developed by the Five Flags Center in downtown Dubuque. After noticing that there was not one place in the tri-state area owners could spend time with their furry family members indoors, Wags at the Flags was born. Wags at the Flags is an indoor dog park that will be open from November 16th, 2016 through the beginning of March 2017 on most Wednesdays from 4:30PM – 8:00PM.
This indoor dog park with feature separate areas for small dogs (20 pounds and under), large dogs (20 pounds and greater), as well as a space for their owners. It will also feature Barka Lounge which will include food, drinks & adult refreshments. Some weeks will have themes, and there will also be Barkeoke where you can sing karaoke with your dog. Last, there will be four vendors featured at every event.
The Five Flags Center is also working alongside Whispurring Hope, an organization based in Dyersville, Iowa that is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue that started in early 2014 by Vicky Ruefer and her daughter, April Hoskins. They are a state licensed, no kill rescue that works to give every animal a fighting chance. $1.00 of every admission will be donated to Whispurring Hope. Click Here to visit their Facebook Page.
