What does it cost to get in?
Entrance is FREE for all dogs and their people, however our charity partner ARTS Senior Animal Rescue will be accepting donations. Advance registration and waiver signing will make things easier for you on DogFest day.
What size of dogs will be at the playdate?
Dogs of all sizes, and breeds are invited to this event. Therefore, dog owners MUST supervise their dog at all times and intervene IMMEDIATELY if there may be a problem. Event producer reserves the right to remove disruptive/aggressive dogs without refund.
What if my dog isn't well socialized, or is nervous?
As long as your dog is not aggressive, and is well behaved in an off leash setting, your dog is welcome to attend. The Event Organizer reserves the right to remove a dog from the event for displaying aggressive behavior towards other people/dogs. It is up to the dog owner to ensure the dog behaves appropriately for the setting.

Yes. Please ensure your dogs shots are completely up to date. Also, ensure your dog isn't displaying any symptoms, such as kennel cough, or diarrhea.
What happens if my dog is "in season" on the date of the event?
