Patrol Report

ARTICLE VIII – PET CONTROL: When you are out walking your pet dog and even your cat, they must be on a leash. SunBird Golf Resort Rules and Regulation Article VIII – Pet Control states “…anyone walking or exercising a pet in any area outside of their own residence shall: Keep such pet on a leash strong enough to control the pet and not longer than six feet in length.”

Leash Law: In the City of Chandler, dogs outside of the residence must be in a suitable enclosure or confined on a leash no longer than six feet in length. Pets observed in SunBird off the leash or running loose on HOA common areas could result in the owner being fined by the HOA. Leash Laws are enforced by the Maricopa County Animal Control Office.

Very Important—avoid getting your dog’s paws burned on scorching hot pavements such as asphalt. Dogs’ paws can be just as sensitive as humans’ feet. That means, they are equally as likely to get burnt walking on a hot surface as their owner would be. Walk early in the morning or late in the evening when surfaces are cooler.

Some important rules to always remember and follow year-round at the clubhouse pool and the adult pool to enhance pool enjoyment, health, and safety. Glass containers are never allowed in the pool area. The pools are shallow, so no diving is permitted. Running and jumping into the pools is dangerous and is not permitted. No eating or drinking while in the swimming pools and Jacuzzi. No one under the age of 14 may use the Jacuzzi. The adult pool located on Oakmont Drive is for adult use only at all times.

Be safe this summer, especially while out walking during the hottest part of the day. If out walking, don’t forget that important container of cold water and maybe carry an umbrella to provide you some shade from that very hot desert sun. Call the Patrol at 480-797-8605 if you are in any kind of distress. If you see us, flag us down. We can get you back home or to the clubhouse if needed. Please be safe, healthy, and happy all summer long!
