SPECTATORS – will be required to check-in with event staff.  We would respectfully ask all spectators to leave their dogs at home.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION – in order to respect our neighbours all competitors are asked to bring an anti-barking device or ensure their dog is quiet. No dogs will be permitted off leash, unless competing. There will be a designated elimination area for dogs, we ask that you use this. Lastly, spectators and competitors are asked to stay within the confines of the south field where the trial will be held. Travelling across the road or to adjacent properties, with or without a dog, shall be construed as trespassing and we shall ask anybody that does so to immediately leave whether or not you are a competitor. The Township’s by-law department will be in attendance for at least a portion of the event and shall be strictly enforcing all applicable laws. You are more than welcome to walk you dog, on leash, off property but all applicable leash laws will be strictly enforced and please do not forget to stoop and scoop. Our last trial went very smoothly, if you have any questions please contact Ryan, Alex or Sean.  Please respect the above and if you have any questions, please see one of the event staff.
