POOP POLICY: No kidding. All guests MUST pick up their pet’s poop immediately and dispose of it in one of the many trashcans around the facility. If a guest does NOT immediately pick up their pet’s poop, we will pick it up and put a $10 charge on the guest’s credit card for each time we pick up the pet’s poop. Note: We do NOT want to charge your credit card a “Poop Fee” but we will do so if you do not pick up your pet’s poop. Plastic bags are available in the office at no charge and our staff is on the lookout for Pet Poop. Seriously. Again, this POOP POLICY has been imposed due to irresponsible and lazy pet owners. Please help us to keep Big Chief “Poop Free”.
