ADDITIONAL NOTES: No dog-on-dog contact. Dogs must be able to work in the vicinity of others, pass by others (with space), etc. Please let us know if your dog is reactive and we will do our best to accommodate. However, if your dog will not feel comfortable in an indoor environment near other dogs then an auditing spot may be best. Basic obedience and manners are required. Bitches in season are welcome to participate but they will be run last and must be wearing appropriate garments. Further instruction will be sent to registrants.
