Hello and welcome to all our NADD Competitors
We are glad you are thinking of attending our specialty event of Air Retrieve and Hydro Dash only.
We all know these are troubling times and because of this we have to impose some rules for the safety and wellbeing of all who will be attending.
This letter will serve to address our plan on addressing new rules put in place due to Covid-19 as well serve as our handler’s meeting for those of you who have been here before and those of you who may be new to the Ocala Dog Ranch. If this is your first time at our facility and you have a question not addressed here please feel free to reach out to Sally or Neil .
If you’re not feeling well or are uncomfortable with attending during Covid-19, please stay home. There will be other events and your wellness is the most important thing. You will not receive a black mark if you cancel last minute. We have suspended that rule at our events for the time being.
