If you believe in reincarnation, pray you are reincarnated as a dog living in a home on the Atlanta Beltline. Dogs have it made here.
Last month, Ponce City Market announced that doggie daycare company Barking Hound Village would offer a dog valet service to PCM customers.
Now another company, Fetch, is upping the ante, offering a ride sharing service for dogs and their owners. Fetch Park and Ice House is partnering with Atlanta-based ride share company Lymousine to offer “dog friendly rides” to and from the Fetch Ice House restaurant.
“Located at 520 Daniel St. in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward neighborhood, Fetch Park and Ice House is Atlanta’s first dog park bar and restaurant concept,” a press release from the company says.
The company is located near the Beltline’s Eastside Trail extension.
Fetch will open this fall and be completed in two phases.
“The first phase, Fetch Park, is scheduled to open late October and consists of a large, off-leash dog park with a full-service converted Airstream bar,” the company said. “The second phase, Fetch Ice House and Shipping Yard, will be made up of an indoor restaurant, a dog-friendly patio and a rooftop bar atop a converted shipping container. Phase 2 is expected to be completed in January 2018.”
Lymousine customers can use the PET button on their app to summon a pet-friendly driver.
“Lymousine is excited to partner with Atlanta’s first dog park bar restaurant to offer a convenient, safe, and pet friendly travel option to customers and their furry family members. Customers, can eat, drink and enjoy the Fetch experience without worrying about parking or driving after the fun,” TJ Tamrat, co-founder and COO of Lymousine, said in the press release.
The dog park offers wi-fi, and TVs – so dogs (or their owners) don’t miss an email and can watch football games – dog washing stations, “Bark Ranger” attendants and heating and cooling stations.
The company uses a membership model. In May, Fetch offered 200 “Founding Fetch” annual memberships, which cost $20 a month.
“Fetch Park’s membership model ensures that dog owners have a fun and well-maintained environment for themselves and their four-legged friends,” the company’s press release says. “Dogs must be spayed or neutered with a current vaccination record to enter the off-leash park and owners must sign a waiver stating their dog is not aggressive. Fetch Ice House is open to the public and welcomes all leashed dogs in its outdoor dining space.”
