There will be a decorated self-serve photography area so that you may take your own photos.
RV parking with 50 amp hookup is available. Reservations for these spaces are to be made directly with Bratty Paws.
Food bait WILL be allowed in the indoor turf areas as long as each exhibitor makes sure that none of it touches the turf or remains on the turf. Bait use in the ring may be allowed at the judge’s discretion. This venue holds regular Agility trials and it is of the utmost importance that all scents are eliminated.
Please exercise your dogs outside to avoid eliminating on the turf. You must clean up after your dogs. Bags are provided outside for your use. You will be asked to leave the grounds with no refund if you fail to clean up after your dog.
If an indoor accident happens, you must follow proper protocol for cleaning the area. The Show Chair, Secretary, or other club worker must be notified so they can inform you immediately how to best clean the area.

Indoor grooming must be done in designated area.  Please clean up your crating/grooming area at the end of each day.

We will hold a raffle with many wonderful items so please bring some extra cash to purchase tickets. The money from the raffle helps to defray the cost of having such a nice show at such a beautiful venue. If you have any items that you would like to donate to our raffle, please contact the show secretary at diorbriards@gmail.com
If you would like to help with ring stewarding, please contact the show secretary.
