PLEASE RESPECT OUR PET POLICY The 2018Canadian Sheepdog Championship maintains a policy that does not permit any spectator pets on the event grounds, excluding services dogs. While this is an event for dog lovers, spectator’s dogs are not allowed. We fully understand your desire to have your animals with you, but ask that you understand our position. This is a highly competitive event, with handlers travelling from all over the world to compete – an escaped dog or disruption could ruin a run. This policy is enforced out of respect and safety for the competitors, demonstrators and the animals. Furthermore, the nature of the sheepdog competition and other events held on the grounds requires due caution to prevent possible injury to the animals. The CBCA encourages visitors to make prior arrangements to ensure proper care is given to their pets while attending the trials. The CBCA in no way whatsoever wishes to encourage or support leaving pets unattended in parked cars, regardless as to whether a window may be open.. In addition to the competing dogs, the following dogs are welcomed at the 2018 Canadian Sheepdog Championships:
• Seeing eye and service dogs
• Dogs involved in official event demonstrations or performances
• Pre-registered dogs belonging to the Handlers
We thank you for your cooperation and understanding with this issue.
