Dog Etiquette

This event is for people and their canine pets; no other animals please. Responsible dog ownership is strongly encouraged. Because you and your dog’s safety is of utmost importance to us, we ask that you please adhere to the following guidelines while on the course and visiting the booths.

  • No pets other than dogs will be permitted on the course.

  • All visiting and participating dogs must be current with vaccinations. Each dog must display current license and rabies tags. No puppies under 6 months old will be permitted to participate as they will not have had all of their vaccinations. Injured and/or ill dogs should not be brought to the run/walk.

  • All dogs must be well socialized and get along with humans and other dogs of all sizes. Dogs that are stressed by crowds and/or display aggressive nature should not participate. This includes dogs that are aggressive towards people, other dogs, food and toys. Any dog displaying signs of aggression must be removed from the area. To discourage aggressive behavior we recommend that dog owners only bring dogs that are spayed or neutered.

  • All dogs must be leashed. Leashes should be no longer than 6 feet. For safety reasons, retractable leashes are discouraged.

  • Please be prepared to pick up any waste deposited by your dog. Dog waste may be placed in trash cans placed throughout the venue and course. Be sure to carry poop bags.

  • To prevent injury while playing with other dogs, prong, pinch, spiked or choke collars are not permitted.

  • Dogs must be under the direct control of their owners at all times.

  • Please be sure children are accompanied by an adult at all times. Children should be educated on how to approach a strange dog and should be advised to use caution if approaching larger dogs.

  • Please do not feed a dog without owner’s permission. Some dogs may have allergies or may be on specialized diets.
