Here's a checklist of things to bring to an event to make it more enjoyable.

  • Dog crate
  • 4' Leash
  • Flat Collar – no prongs, E-collars allowed on the DOCK but okay at the rest of the event.  Your dog may jump “naked” if preferred.
  • Water bowls
  • Bottled water for dogs and humans
  • Fold up chair
  • Poop bags!
  • Shade tent if you're at an outside venue (both for rain and sun) - most people are willing to share this – just ask
  • Toys - They must float, not be edible, not alive or have ever been alive (bring a few different ones, you may want to switch things up)
  • Towels/Chamois
  • Dog and People 1st Aid Kit
  • Dog and People Snacks
  • Rain jacket cause you just never know
  • If not registered online, cash or check for club events, most National Events accept credit/debit cards
  • Dry or waterproof clothes and shoes in cool weather – hot weather you’ll appreciate the coolness of the water
  • Sense of humour!
