Crating Information:

Dogs will be able to remain in the Sport Court (solid floor, primary crating area) and Field 5 until 11:00 pm. On this night, for the safety and security of the dogs, the crating area will be secured and protected by security personnel. They will have means to identify the owners if anything would appear suspicious. Daily cleaning of the crating area will be localized and manual.

An area will be reserved for the 100 Parade of Titleholder dogs on Field 5 who will be shown at the Welcome Dinner.

All crates must have a protective mat under the crate in any of the crating areas. NO BITCHES IN SEASON WILL BE ALLOWED IN THE CRATING AREA, AS THIS AREA WILL BE USED THE NEXT DAY FOR OBEDIENCE AND RALLY.



Information will be posted on our Volunteers page.
