- In just a few weeks, dogs will have their own place to roam in Rhinelander.
Fencing went up at Shepard Park Monday and Tuesday.
After 10 years of pushing for a Rhinelander dog park, Tina Werres says it's amazing how fast it's all coming together.
"The puppies can howl because it's time. I'm so proud of the community for coming together on this," said Werres.
The crews were expected to finish putting up the fencing Tuesday.
But Werres asks that people stay out of the park for a little while longer.
"Please give us a few days to post our rules and make sure there are no sneak-out points, because you know those doggies--they love to sneak," Werres said "We have to do some ground work here before we open," said Werres.
Werres says there will be yellow caution tape up on the gate until the park is safe to use.
There will be a grand opening for the park in a couple of weeks.
