- Remember to practice over the four-week period leading up to the walk so that you and your dog are properly trained for the event.
- Practice walking on trails or other locations where people walk with their dogs to acclimate your dog to other dogs in a pack with distractions.
- Stay hydrated with water at start/finish. Watch for signs of overheating. Watering holes will be available.
- Make sure to stop if your dog is lagging behind. Pay close attention to the energy and stress levels of your dog. Dragging is never allowed.
- Have proof of rabies vaccination handy.
- Dogs must be on leashes at all times. Use of retractable leashes is highly discouraged & can be hazardous in a crowd!
- Inspect your dog's pads for any signs of cuts and wear. Veterinarians will be available.
- Don't forget to have fun!
