Be sure to bring your pet's favorite ball or toy to play with. Owners must be with and responsible for their dogs at all times. They are also responsible for cleaning up the messes their pup may leave. All dogs must be vaccinated against rabies, distemper and parvo. These records can be obtained through your vet and must be verified upon registration.
