All dogs MUST be kept on a 6 foot or shorter leash. NO flexi leashes or long lines allowed during an event.


A running order will be posted. Block times will be e-mailed ahead of time so competitors know when they will be jumping.  We will also make regular announcements to alert competitors that their turn is coming up.


Crating / Parking Area

Parking close to the pool is reserved for those competitors assigned in the current jump block window.   We are encouraging competitors to use these “block-time use only” parking spots since they will only be on site for a short time each day.

Competitors may arrive 30 minutes prior to their scheduled block time to check in only.  Should someone show up early, they are to stay with their car until their scheduled time except to check in.  Parking for the next block of competitors will be further from the pool until the current block of competitors leave a parking spot open.

The Porta Potty will be cleaned between each 2-hour time block of competitors as best as possible. There will be toilet paper and hand sanitizer for the Porta Potty.  Please do NOT walk off with either as this is ALL we have for the whole weekend.
