  • Bring reusable water bottles – water coolers will be provided for refilling your bottles.
  • Please consider donating your spare coins to our collection at the registration desk. Every bit helps.


  • Please ensure that your Golden/dog is well socialized and will be able to manage being in a large group of dogs and people with children.
  • For the safety of all Goldens/dogs, we ask that you please NOT bring tennis balls, treats or toys.
