Do you guys have any questions?

People sometimes ask . . .
How many dogs can be registered to compete?

The total number of dogs that we can accept is 60. We want to provide enough room for the dogs so that they are comfortable and then they will perform at their best!

This is the maximum number for the event. If you are considering entering then register early if you can!

What is the registration deadline?

All registrations must be submitted by 5:00 PM on Tuesday, August 22nd.

What about children escorting dogs?

Children who escort a dog must be 12 years of age to participate. Younger children can participate but need to be accompanied by an adult.

What are the dog owner's responsibilities?

All dogs must be on a leash.

Owners are responsible for their dogs.

We also need to keep the Woodstock Green clean. Please be prepared with your doggie clean-up bag – thanks!

Water bowls will be on the green during the event.

What about refreshments for humans?

Water will be available as well as delicious hot dogs!
