Stuff you should know: please make sure all dogs are at least six months old, wear current ID tags and are up-to-date on all shots. All dog handlers must be at least 13 years of age and control their dogs at all times. For obvious reasons, please do not bring female dogs in season or dogs needing muzzles. Owners will be responsible for cleaning up after their furry friend.
