First City Dog Policy
The following is First City’s policy for dogs at the gym. All dog owners MUST read, understand, and adhere to these policies or they will not be allowed to bring their dog to First City.
During the workout, dogs must be kept out of the way of those working out including for workouts that involve running.
All dogs must be kept off the rubber flooring, platforms and anywhere that athletes are working out or where athletes may be on the floor.
Owners with dogs that shed must bring a blanket or sheet for their dog to lay on. For dogs with a lot of fur or that shed a lot, vacuuming and/or sweeping the area where your dog stays while you are working out may be necessary to ensure that the dog’s hair is cleaned up. There are vacuums, brooms, and dustpans in the broom closet.
Any dog that pees or poops inside the gym is no longer allowed inside the gym. They can come to the gym but must be kept outside at all times.
Owners must clean up after their dogs when their dog poops outside. Poop should be picked up using a bag and disposed of in the garbage dumpster on the left out back or taken with you. Please do not put dog poop in the garbage bins inside the gym.
Owners must take the necessary steps to prevent their dogs from barking or whining during the workout. If dogs continue to whine or bark, please avoid bringing them.
