Are spectator dogs welcome?

As far as I know, yes. The events are being held on the grounds of the humane society, so there will definitely be some non-competing dogs in attendance.

I would recommend that you bring a crate just in case. Most events allow spectator's dogs, but if there is a problem they may ask you to put the dog up. For weight pull you'll probably watch from the front, and most pulls do not allow any dogs past the starting line so you'll be stuck behind the action.

I've put it on my calendar. When it gets closer, hopefully we'll see who all is going and I can finally meet some of the folks on this board.

Okey dokey! Not a problem at all...

Sawyer of course would be there, but he's allowed. ;) I just wanted to make sure I wasn't making a huge faux pas if I brought Score. Thanks for the advice on where to stand too...

We've always got crates in the van, so by Nov. it *should* be fine to leave him in there (who knows with this weather nowadays)...and I've always got soft crates in the van too, just in case. ;)

Now to find my calendar so I can write this in! lol

Sawyer is your service dog, correct? You may still be limited on where you can have him just from a safety and fairness standpoint. I'm sure some consessions will be made, as he is obviously not a "pet" but in some events it would not be a good thing on either end.
