NADD is working hard to get as many dogs qualified as possible prior to the new end date of the season, September 15, 2020. Once we have the registration process completed, we will be able to publish a finalized schedule. Tentatively, each day will have Hydrodash in the morning, Distance during the day, and Air Retrieve in the evening. Competitors will be broken into groups by the owner's last name, and assigned a day to complete all their jumps, to minimize the number of people staying overnight and onsite each day to limit risk of COVID spread.
As with everything in 2020, nothing is certain, except that we all want to play with our dogs. So, we will be adhering to current COVID requirements and restrictions. An updated COVID Plan for the event will be sent via email at least one week prior to the event start. You can expect masks, sanitizer, and social distancing rules. Please understand that compliance with our COVID plan is what allows us to hold these events, and that sense of normalcy is precious.
The event is being held at a private house. Please make sure you pick up after your dog. We will not be allowing RV's if you need a place to camp please reach out to me at Centralk9dogs@gmail.com, I am allowing some to camp at the facility which is not that far away.
I know this is not the ideal place for some but this is what we have due to the covid times.
Porta potties and wash stations will be available.
The actual address of the event is 138 Bush Hill Rd Willimantic CT
